I'm using the following code and it works fine for the most part, however it allows the user to move to the next record after the second  attemp without entering the date resolved. How do I require the user to enter the date resolved before moving to the next record.

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
If Not IsNull(Me.ResolveCode) And IsNull(Me.DateResolved) Then
MsgBox "Please enter the Date Resolved", vbExclamation, "FSB GovTrip"

        Me.DateResolved.SetFocus
       
       Exit Sub
    End If

   
 
 
End Sub

Do:

Cancel = True

which tells Access to cancel the update of the control.   No need to do the set focus.  The focus will remain on the control.
