Cancel Form Close Event

Aug 3, 2005

Is there a way to cancel a form's close event? If a user clicks the form's close button, I want a msgbox to ask if they are sure, and if yes continue and close, else cancel the forms close event. I know how to perform the msgbox and the if statement. I can not figure out how to cancel the form's close event.

Forms :: Update / Requery Subform Through On Close Event Of Another Form

Aug 2, 2013

I am working with 2 forms and a subform.

frmTaskTracker -subfrmInbox (Datasheet View - based on a query)


subfrmInbox displays a summary of tasks on a task list. The user navigates to frmUpdateInboxItem from frmTaskTracker. After updating a record from frmUpdateInboxItem, it is possible that it the record in question will no longer meet the requirements to have it listed on subfrmInbox.

I have attempted to add code to the on close event of frmUpdateInboxItem to requery the sub form on frmTaskTracker but am not getting the syntax correct.

correct my code? Alternatively is there is a more correct way to do this, I'd be happy to learn it.

Option Compare Database
Private Sub cmdClose_Click()
DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmUpdateInboxItem"
End Sub

Forms :: Refresh A Combo Box On Close Event Of Edit Form

Apr 21, 2015

I have a Main form with a combo box that pulls names from a table. Alongside the combo box is a command button that opens a form which allows the user to edit the names in the table.

The problem: When a user edits a name and closes the edit form, the edit is not immediately displayed in the combo box. However, when the Main form is closed and reopened, the edit is properly displayed. Can I somehow refresh the combo box in the On Close event of the edit form?

Cancel Event Question

Aug 23, 2007

I have docmd.sendobject that opens Outlook to send an email, etc. However if the user does not send the email and cancels out of the message Access is asking the user if they want to debug. How can I simply have Access return to where the user was before they hit the command button that launched Outlook. I don't want them to go into the code. In fact I don't even want a message of any type - I thought I could trap the cancel somehow and code for it...

What Event Is Associated With The Cancel Box In The Title Bar?

Mar 3, 2006

Hard to search for ths really, but I have a form with two buttons: Save and Exit.

Save saves the current record

Exit does an Undo if the form is .Dirty

If I cancel from the title bar, then the records are saved and the Close event is activated.

What I need is to detect if the Cancel box was clicked so that I can do an Unload before the form closes



btw, I'm getting the hang of this. It's a lot different from mainframe Cobol but it's fun to learn new stuff.

Forms :: How To Cancel Mouseup Event

May 23, 2013

I have an app that is browsing a survey. When the survey is in simple 'browse' mode, I want to be able to emulate the effect of a SkipResponse. (A SkipResponse is when selecting a particular value causes the normally sequential processing of survey questions to become non-linear. A sort of If Response = thisvalue then next question is something else) I can 'request' the SkipResponse by using Ctrl/Alt click, and then emulate returning from the target question by using Ctrl/Shift Click.

My problem is that I want to do the same thing (for a return) by allowing Ctrl/Shift on the Exit button. If I just use a regular mouseup evvent, it will complete, but will then go ahead and run the code for the Click event, to exit the survey. What I would like is to be able to cancel the processing of the Click event from within the handler of the MouseUp event.

Modules & VBA :: Cancel Parameter In Before Update Event

Jan 7, 2014

I am trying to use a Combobox BeforeUpdate Event to achieve a required result.

I have two combo boxes inside a frame. The first is a year number 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014

The Second is the Week No ranging from 1-52, but 1-53 in some cases and this updates accordingly with the year number selected.

When the user has selected Week 53 and then changes the year to a year where only 52 weeks exist I want to Cancel their event.

I have already made a function to determine if 53 weeks exits however when I come to do the Cancel Event, the combobox for the year doesn't change back. It stays on the users new selection.

Below is the code that I am trying to use:

Private Sub cmbWeekNoFromYear_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
If UpdateWeekNoSelections Then
Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

'cmbWeekNoFromYear is the name of the combobox which holds the year number
'UpdateWeekNoSelections Simply returns True if I want the users change cancelled for cmbWeekNoFromYear

Modules & VBA :: Cancel OnExit Event When Another Command Button Is Pressed

May 8, 2015

I have a form with a control for the user to enter some data and then two command buttons 'OK' and 'Cancel'

For the OnExit event in the control I have a procedure that check the user input and if incorrect, opens a message box with an error message asking the user to correct the data. It then cancels the event so the focus remains in the current control.

However if the user presses the 'Cancel' command button on the form to cancel & close the form, the OnExit event for the current control still fires and asks the user to correct the data.

In my code in the control, how can I recognise that the Cancel command button has been pressed, so I can cancel the OnExit event and close the form?

Forms :: Cancel On Load Event When Pressing Command Button

Aug 21, 2013

I have a form (Pipeline) with an on load event that automatically directs the user to a new empty record.


Private Sub Form_Load()
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
End Sub

Now my problem is that I am trying to design a 'search form' that will allow the user to look up a specific record in the main form by pressing a command button. Creating the search form is easy enough. I cannot figure out how to override the on load event in the main form when pressing the command button.

As it is right now, the button opens the form and then go directly to a new record.

On Close Event

Jun 17, 2005

Hi all - Having a problem getting my macro to run with the ON CLOSE event of a form. Before users exit the form (or database completely), I want the macro to run. The macro is designed to run an update query that updates 3 fields in my main table. Right now, the macro runs and but it only updates 2 of the 3 fields. It's as if the database closes before the update query gets a chance to finish. Any ideas on this?

Cancel Out Of Edit Form

Nov 1, 2006

I have a form with avout 4 fields based upon a query to allow user to edit an entry if needed.
I want to put a cancel button on so that if they change their mind after having changed a field it reverts to its original value - so for instance they decide to change a land line phone number to a mobile, exit the field but then have a brain storm and decide not to do this so hit the cancel button.
At the moment my cancel button just closes the form (and accepts the overwrite) which would be fine if I am using ADO but not if I am using a bound form.
I am sure there is a simple answer (since I cannot be the only person who thinks this option might be a good idea). I am just not sure how to look for it.
Any thoughts or ideas?

Want To Cancel Prompt, Select No And Still Closes Form

Aug 14, 2007

Hi All,

I have a pop up form that requires me to fill out all 4 fields of the form. When I don't, I get a prompt telling me which field(s) I've forgotton to fill in and allows me the option to Cancel (Yes or No) and if i decide yes it wont save and will close the form. BUT when I say No (Don't cancel), it still closes out the form and I obviously don't want that. I don't know if it might have to do with my macro button either? Any clue?

Thanks in Advance!


Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim blnError As Boolean
Dim strError As String

strError = "You are missing data for "

If IsNull(Me.[Account Number]) Or Me.[Account Number] = "" Then
blnError = True
strError = strError & "Account Number,"
End If

If IsNull(Me.Contact) Or Me.Contact = "" Then
blnError = True
strError = strError & " Contact,"
End If

If IsNull(Me.Department) Or Me.Department = "" Then
blnError = True
strError = strError & " Department,"
End If

If IsNull(Me.Address) Or Me.Address = "" Then
blnError = True
strError = strError & " Address,"
End If

If blnError Then
strError = Left(strError, Len(strError) - 1)
If MsgBox(strError & vbCrLf & "Are you sure you want to cancel." & vbCrLf & "If you do, the info will not be added.", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Close Confirmation") = vbNo Then
Cancel = True
End If
End If
End Sub

Forms :: Cancel When Hitting Form X Button

May 9, 2013

Here's the setup:

- I have a parent form bound to a parent table with a subform bound to a subtable.

- The parent does not allow data entry and has its sole field filled by a listbox.

- The subForm is a data entry form which contains two buttons in addition to it's fields: btnCancel and btnOK

-btnOK checks to ensure that all required fields are filled out and then saves and closes the parent form. - ALL OK

- btnCancel closes undoes any changes andcloses the form - ALL OK

The issue I have is with the user utilizing the Parent form x button to close the form. For uniformity I would like to not remove this button but would like it to prompt the user whether to discard the changes if the form is dirty.

I attempted the following on both the parent and sub forms to no avail. I can't even get the event to trigger:

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim rspSaveorDiscard As VbMsgBoxResult
rspSaveorDiscard = vbYes

If Me.Dirty Then
intSaveorDiscard = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to close without saving?", vbYesNo, "Discard Changes")

[Code] .....

I was under the impression that when closing a form using the x button the before_update event was triggered first, then the close event, then the unload event. How should I handle this?
