Warning if name already exists in database

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-24
I'm trying to alert a user if a name already exists in the database.  Something is wrong with this code.  Can someone tell me what it is?  The syntax is wrong in the first line.

    If DCount("*", "Member Table", "MemberFullName = '" & Me.txtMemberFullName & "') > 0 then
        MsgBox "There is already a member in the database with this name.", vbOKOnly
    End If
