Delete Sub in Access

Hello Experts,

I am trying to create a delete function on a form that gives the user a choice whether to continue. The code I am using doesn't work, but if I just use the DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDeleteRecord it does work. In both cases I have set the focus to the ProjectID control since there are subforms associated with the main form. What am I doing wrong?
 
Private Sub scmd8_Click()
On Error GoTo err_handle
    Me.ProjectID.SetFocus
    If MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete this record?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, strAppName) = vbNo Then
    Exit Sub
    Else
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDeleteRecord
    End If

scmd8_ClickExit:
    
   Exit Sub

err_handle:
     
     If Err.Number = 3200 Then
     MsgBox "Error: " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & Err.Description, vbExclamation, "frmProjects"
      End If
            Exit Sub
            
End Sub

I can't immediately see anything wrong with your code, but you do have an error handler that only displays a message for Error #3200 (Related records preventing deletion).  Any other error will occur quietly and you won't know.

I suggest you delete lines 16 and 18 and then see if you get a meaningful message.  You could also comment out line 2 while you are debugging.

Thanks Graham,

I redacted part of the err handle syntax when I submitted my question as it involves writing to an error table, but the problem was with the error handling. I did comment out line 2 and the code worked perfectly.

Thanks for helping me with this code.

Hi hbatt

Thanks for your intention to select my answer.  I believe you can still accept the answer, but if you close the question it will not be marked as "answered" and no points will be awarded.

I have posted a "Request Attention" to get someone to assist you.

Best wishes,

Thanks again Graham--I am not sure what that hiccup was, but I know I closed the question and awarded you the points with an "A" score. I did it again and it worked.

Best,
