"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
The BeforeDelConfirm event does not occur and the Delete Confirm dialog box isn't displayed if you clear the Record Changes check box under Confirm on the Editing tab of the Access Options dialog box.
