Access 2010 vba:

I'm trying to limit the numbers of records to enter into a subform.
The forms main "current event".
I have:
With Me![dbo_t_redbook_pricing_escalation_detail_subform].Form
  If .Recordset.RecordCount <= 5 Then
    .AllowAdditions = True
    .AllowEdits = True
  Else
    .AllowAdditions = False
    .AllowEdits = True
  End If
End With

Open in new window


But I never get prompted to stop any data entry beyond 5 records ?

Thanks

I found this bit of code and it works great.
Public Function LimitRecords( _
          frm As Access.Form, _
          Optional RecLimit As Integer = 1)
 
  ' Limit the number of records in the form passed as
  ' to no more than the number specified by .
 In a module:
  With frm.RecordsetClone
    If .RecordCount <> 0 Then .MoveLast
    frm.AllowAdditions = (.RecordCount < RecLimit)
  End With
End Function

Open in new window


Called by

LimitRecords Me, 5

But Just need some stop message when trying to enter a 6th record. Or Some Alert.
Thanks

I have posted that before:
Public Sub SetFormAllowAdditions( _
  ByVal frm As Form, _
  ByVal lngRecordCountMax As Long)

' Limit count of records in (sub)form to that of lngRecordCountMax.
' 2004-10-06, Cactus Data ApS, CPH
'
' Call in (sub)form:
'
'   Private Sub LimitRecords()
'     Const lngRecordsMax As Long = 5
'     Call SetFormAllowAdditions(Me.Form, lngRecordsMax)
'   End Sub
'
'   Private Sub Form_AfterDelConfirm(Status As Integer)
'     Call LimitRecords
'   End Sub
'
'   Private Sub Form_AfterInsert()
'     Call LimitRecords
'   End Sub
'
'   Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
'     Call LimitRecords
'   End Sub

  Dim booAllowAdditions As Boolean

  With frm
    booAllowAdditions = (.RecordsetClone.RecordCount < lngRecordCountMax)
    If booAllowAdditions <> .AllowAdditions Then
      .AllowAdditions = booAllowAdditions
    End If
  End With

End Sub

Open in new window

You can extend the last part:

  With frm
    booAllowAdditions = (.RecordsetClone.RecordCount < lngRecordCountMax)
    If booAllowAdditions = False Then
        MsgBox "No more records allowed."
    End If
    If booAllowAdditions <> .AllowAdditions Then
      .AllowAdditions = booAllowAdditions
    End If
  End With
