How do I close a form without saving the record


A

Ayo

I am trying to figure out a way to cancel or close a form without saving the
record. I tried: DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name, acSaveNo, but a blank record is
still created.
I want to just be able to close the form without creating anything once I
click cancel. How can I accomplish this? Thanks

acSaveNo refers to saving design changes to the structure of the form, not the
data - often a point of confusion!

You can have your cancel button do

Me.Undo

to restore the contents of the form to what was there when the user started.

To both undo and close the form put code along these lines in the button's
Click event procedure:

Const CANTUNDO = 2046

On Error Resume Next
RunCommand acCmdUndo
Select Case Err.Number
Case 0
' no error
Case CANTUNDO
' anticipated error so do nothing
Case Else
' unanticipated error so inform user
MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation, "Error"
Exit Sub
End Select

DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name
