I have code that will write to my Memo box if there is a value in BC1 and so on.  It will only display the text if I in a record that has BC1.  I need to keep displaying after I click off the record so the user know that they entered something into the memo box

Here is my code
Private Sub Remarks1_AfterUpdate()
 Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
   Dim strRemarks As String
    strRemarks = Me.Remarks1
    If strRemarks = "" Then Exit Sub
   Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Final_Table")
   'strRemarks = Me.Remarks1

   Do While Not rst.EOF
        If Nz(rst![BC1Chng1]) <> "" Then
         rst![Remarks1] = strRemarks
         rst![Remarks1] = Null
      End If

End Sub
