Access Form on close event - Fail

Hello All,

I am using a form to enter new records in a table. I have been getting errors when i wanted to do this. When I add a new record to this table, i want a routine to run.

The routine basically saves the value of myCode of that new row (to a variable) that was just added via that form.

''Private Sub Form_AfterUpdate()
'''c = (Trim(Me.myCode))
''End Sub

Open in new window

Your error indicates you're trying to do something in the BeforeUPdate event that is stopping the process from completing. The BU event should not be used to alter data on the form. You should use it for things like validation or confirmation.

You should be able to run a routine in the BU event assuming it does not alter data on the form.
