try this
Private Sub btnPrintLabels_Click()
    If  isNull(Me.SkuNm) Then
      msgbox "Please Fill Out Name Title First.", vbInformation, "Message"
       SkuNm.SetFocus
    Exit Sub
   Else
     PrintLabel
      Forms!frmSkusEntry!PrintLabelQTY.value = "1"
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window


this is my  preference

Private Sub btnPrintLabels_Click()
    If Me.SkuNm & ""="" Then
      msgbox "Please Fill Out Name Title First.", vbInformation, "Message"
       SkuNm.SetFocus
    Exit Sub
   Else
     PrintLabel
      Forms!frmSkusEntry!PrintLabelQTY.value = "1"
    End If
End Sub

LOL I forgot the Parenthesis. I can't believe that! Thanks Rey! I like the other way also but couldn't think of it.

IsNull, one word is a function that then expects an argument  to test. Use
If isNull (Me.SkuNm.value) Then

Open in new window

Is Null, two words, is used to compare an object to Null.  You will find this used in SQL generated for queries.
