Cancel Form Close Event

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.

Cancel Event Question
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?
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.

On Close Event
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?

On Close Event
Hi all

On closing a report, I am prompted to save it (because I've changed a record source when it opened)

However, I don't want to save it.

Is there an command I could use during the on close event (or something similar) to get rid of the prompts??

Cancel And Exit Form
Hi all, I have a textbox with an input mask for an id number, so if I begin adding numbers I get an error message if they're not in correct format- this is fine- but I want the user to be able to cancel the entry and exit the form, but when I click the cancel button I get an error message about the id format- anyone know how I can allow cancel to override this?

Cancel Out Of Edit Form
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
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

Cancel Validation Rule Message Boxes On Closing Form
I want to close a form and I am using

Private Sub Form_Close()
End Sub

as the form opens with the access application window hidden, and I found that the .ldb file didn't close if I simply used the X.

I have a series of fields with validation rules which activate on exit. One of these validation rules is in the box which gets focus when the form opens. This means that I get the validation text error message boxes when I close the form with the X.

If I have started to complete the form, I get a whole host of error messages and validation messages when I try to shut it with the X.

Is there a way of closing the form and cancelling or ignoring all error message boxes. I want the user to be able to close the form if they have decided not to fill it in after all, or have got part way through and want to cancel.

I would really appreciate any help, I am sure this is a very basic question and I should probably be able to find the answer, but I can't and I am very fed up!

Open Form On Menu Then Close Old Form
I've a custom menu bar from which I can choose any of my forms. However when you choose a new form the old form stays open, sloppy in my mind. Is there any way i can choose the new form from the menu bar & close the previous form? I've tried to close on deactivate, w/ no luck.

Close The Form
When the user clicks to close the form the Before Update event runs, and has the following code to check that all the required fields are completed:

If IsNull(Me.ToxReceived) Then
stdresponse = (MsgBox("You must enter the toxicology received date before continuing." & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
"Do you want to do that now? Click YES to return to complete the form, click NO to undo the record", vbYesNo, "Missing Data"))

If stdresponse = vbYes Then

Cancel = True
Exit Sub
End If
End If

If the user clicks no, and the record is undone, how do I get the close form event to still continue?

When [How?] To Close A Form..
I have a form that I want only to be opened from another form (i.e. the user presses a button from form1 and form2 is magically displayed).

My solution: In form2, I check to see if form1 is open in "use" mode. If not, I display a message and close form2.

The problem: The close code (docmd.close) is at the beginning of Form_Current. Apparently, Form_Current doesn't like to be interrupted. I receive a run-time error 2585 (This action can't be carried out while processing a form or report event).

Ok, so, umm, how exactly am I supposed to close the form? I tried the check during Form_Load instead, using the cancel variable instead of the docmd.close. However, I don't think this code got executed. It's almost like the form was already loaded or the Form_Load occurs after Form_Current (In my handy chart here, it says that Form_Current occurs when a form containing data is first opened and when you move to a different record.. so, I suppose it is possible).

Any thoughts?

Close Form
I'm trying to close one form by using a button on another. This is my code:

DoCmd.Close acForm, frmSimCount

It dosen't work but comes up with an error:

Run-time errer '2493'

This action requires an object name.

I thought that was the name of the form, which is frmSimCount, could someone put me in the right direction please.

Form Field Validation - "Cancel = True" Problem
I'm calling this code on my Form's BeforeUpdate Event which I understand should only run if the form is dirty. In this example, the code should check to see if 4 fields ("txtField1", "txtField2", txtField3", "txtField4") have data present, if not highlight them yellow.

Function Msg()
Dim ctl As Control
Dim strFields As String
Dim strControl As String
Dim intCounter As Integer
Dim blnEmpty As Boolean

For Each ctl In Me.Controls
blnEmpty = False
If ctl.ControlType = acComboBox Or acTextBox Then
If ctl.Visible And Len(ctl.Tag) > 0 Then
Select Case ctl.Tag
Case "txtField1", "txtField2", txtField3", "txtField4"
If IsNull(ctl.Value) Then
blnEmpty = True
ctl.BackColor = vbYellow
ctl.BackColor = vbWhite
End If
Case Else
If ctl.Value = 0 Then
blnEmpty = True
ctl.BackColor = vbYellow
ctl.BackColor = vbWhite
End If
End Select
If blnEmpty Then _
strFields = strFields & ctl.Tag & vbCrLf
If blnEmpty Then _
If Len(strControl) = 0 Then _
strControl = ctl.Name
End If
End If

If Len(strFields) > 0 Then
Cancel = True
MsgBox "You have not completed all data fields, " & _
"please enter data in the following fields:" & vbCrLf & strFields, _
vbExclamation, Me.Caption
Me(strControl).BackColor = vbWhite
Exit Function
End If
End Function

However, it keeps falling over at:
Cancel = True saying "Compile Error: Variable Not Defined"

I want to be able to run this code from a "Close Form button" to ensure that either the record is not created unless the fields listed are filled in or the form closure is cancelled so that the user can complete the missing data.

I've seen varients of this code on a couple of Access forums but can't find a solution for the "Cancel = True" issue.

Am I doing something wrong?
