An expert helped me last week with this code:
    If Me.NewRecord = True Then
        If (Not IsNull(DLookup("[UniqueID]", "tblScheduleRecords", "[UniqueID] ='" & Me!txtUniqueID & "'"))) Then
            MsgBox "This client has already been scheduled for this Group, Schedule Date & Time."
            Cancel = True
        End If
    End If

Open in new window

But if the record already exists I want the record to be deleted from the datasheet.  How can I accomplish this?
