Handling zero records situation

In MS Access there is a main form with a sub form. They are linked by a common customer field. The issue is when the source query of the main form has no records for the particular customer chosen. An empty form results. How would I set this up so that when the main form source query has no records for a customer a message box advising the user that this customer has no records appears and then close the form ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the AfterUpdate event of your search box, check the recordcount of the form:

If Me.RecordsetClone.RecordCount = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Not found"
End If
