Having Trouble With Discarding Changes On Form, Access 2016

Having Trouble With Discarding Changes On Form, Access 2016

Having Trouble With Discarding Changes On Form, Access 2016


I have a form called frmMaster. I am trying to apply a code when the form is closed mid entry or full entry, So that the user can discard the changes if necessary. I am having some trouble when the form is fully completed. It closes even though I give a vbNO option. Would appreciate some help to sort my code.

I got this code from the net and was trying to use it for my purpose.


Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)my 
If bClose = False Then
   If MsgBox("Do you want to save the changes?", vbYesNo) = vbNo Then
            Cancel = True
   Exit Sub
   End If
End If
End Sub 

In the Current Event bClose = false and my Save button bClose = true.

Any idea why my for is closing??

You try this.
Add "Me.Undo" after the line Cancel=True.
