Is there a way have to enter a password in order to delete a record? This password doesn't have to be secure at all (just more of a process). I have using the below code for a password to change an item on this form. If they were to delete the entire record, can I have it ask for the same password (which is the booking number - 111*2)?

Thanks!

Private Sub ItemPrice_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim strCorrectPassword As String

strCorrectPassword = Abs(Me.BookNumber - 1111) * 2

If Forms![MainForm]![Bookings subform].Form![DateRecorded] < Date - 1 Then    'Reads in a date field on your from called "Some Date"
    If InputBox("Enter Password") <> strCorrectPassword Then 'Compares passwords
        Cancel = True
        MsgBox "Change not allowed without valid password.", vbOKOnly
        Me.ItemPrice.Undo 'undo recent change to this field
        Exit Sub
    End If
End If
End Sub

For starters, seems you would want this code in the Form's Before Del Confirm event - which can also  be cancelled.
