Message appears twice.

Amateur needs help!

I have a main client form with combo box that selects client.
When client doesn't exist the NotInList code opens an entry form.
When the entry form is complete the user uses a command button to close and
return to that record on the main client form.

Everything is as I want, except the message querying whether to add the
NotInList client appears twice: when its not in the list and again at closing
the entry form.

[txtAdding] is a 1 or 0 and is status for use elsewhere.

I cannot see where the problem. Help!

****** code for main client form NotInList ********

Private Sub cboClient_NotInList(NewData As String, Response As Integer)
Dim Result
Dim msg, CR As String
CR = Chr$(13)

' Exit this subroutine if the combo box was cleared.
If NewData = "" Then Exit Sub

' Ask the user if he or she wishes to add the new customer.
NewData = UCase(NewData)
msg = "'" & NewData & "' is not in the list." & CR & CR
msg = msg & "Do you want to add it?"

If Me.txtAdding = 0 Then
If MsgBox(msg, vbQuestion + vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
' If the user chose Yes, start the Client form in data entry
Me.txtAdding = 1

Thanks for responding.

I added that line. I also identified the variable (Option Explicit) as both
String and Integer. Both returned the same results. The message appears
twice.

I just don't see how its instructed to show twice.

In yr Client entry form, you use this line:Why do you need this line?
The Client entry form is opened in an acAdd state. If you undo the changes,
the new record isn't saved.
What happens if you leave out this line?

If the above suggestion fails,
here's a slightly different approach; try to implement

[mainform code)
NotInList() event of the combo fires:
Write the new record to the table
Make sure changes are committed
Pickup the ID of the new record
Set the Response parameter to acDataErrAdded
Open the Client Entry form normally, use a filter or a where statement
using the ID

[frm 1 Client entry code]
Let the user do the entry of other client info on the form, don't toggle
the Dirty() property!~
While having a pointer to your mainform (still loaded I presume), you
may need to requery the combo on yr mainform
Set the combo value (on mainform) to the ID you used previously
Close the Client entry form and your back in the mainform with the new
record selected in the combo
