Hi Experts,
I have a question about the code in a Cancel button on a form.  What is the best way to do in a Cancel Button.  should use: (what ever user(s) updated or enter anything on the form, if they click "Cancel" then anything the user just enter will not save and what ever data on the form before user update will still stay there)
a).  If me.dirty = true then
         me.undo
      end if
      docmd.close

b).  if me.dirty then
         me.undo
     end if
     docmd.close

c). me.undo
     docmd.close

d). sendkeys "{esc}{esc}"   -- this seems not working, may be I did it wrong
     docmd.close

Thanks,

I'd use (a) or (b). That should undo any changes to the form where the code is running.

There may be nuances behind the scenes on the handling of these codes but in the end a, b, and c will do pretty much the same. This may just come down to user preference.  Me personally, I would do this:

If Me.Dirty Then Me.Undo
DoCmd.Close
