You'll have to give a little more detail.

Do you want to determine if the value exists in a specific column in the table? Or in several columns in the table?

You can use DCount to determine if it exists in a single column:

If Nz(Dcount("*", "YourTable", "YourColumn=" & Me.YourTextbox), "") <> "" Then
  '/ the value exists
  '/ the value does not exist

You'd have to show us the stored proc in order for us to provide you with specific advice on running that.
End If

VBA doesn't directly access tables.  You would do this by creating an update query that selects the record you want to update if the value is null and sets the value to whatever you want.

I'm guessing that you are making this harder than it needs to be.  Are you not using a bound form?
