Is it advisable to also line out the event and End sub thereby completely removing any event?  Not sure if there could be a conflict if Access "sees" an event but there is nothing to execute.  

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
'codes here
End Sub

is it advisable to do this: (rem out Private and End Sub)
'Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
'codes here
'End Sub

I will usually comment the code inside the event rather than entire event, but they both will do basically the same thing. The only difference that I can think of is you will generate errors if something else is calling the event and you have it commented (lined out).

If the event is not commented, Access will see the event and run it at the appropriate time but nothing will happen since there is no code to execute.

Unless you have [Event Procedure] on the Property sheet of a Form or Control on the Form, no code will execute.  If you are no longer using the event, then delete the code. Less Is More.

I only thought to keep the event and comment out the code to show that I did try to do whatever it was and decided it was not the way to go and had no other additional code there.

Well, nothing  wrong with commenting out the code for your own (or others) historical reasons.

I do that sometimes. Leave attempted solutions commented out with notes as to why it didn't work. I usually remove all of that in the production copy though. I maintain two copies of everything; one that is a direct copy of the working production code and another that has all of my development 'stuff'.
