Last Record and run time error message

Last Record and run time error message

Last Record and run time error message


I am attempting to write code in response to a run time error, 2105 to be exact. The error message that I have successfully created states "you are at the last record."

The problem is that if there are 10 records, the message doesn't appear until the user advances past 10 to the 11th record,which is blank, and then attempts to advance one more by hitting the "next record" command button.

Ideally, I would like the error message to appear without allowing the user to see the blank 11th record.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


RE: Last Record and run time error message

Hi Ash,

If the user isn't allowed to add records set the form/subform mode to edit only (user cant add new records)
AllowEdits = false

Or try adding this check on your "next record" command button

If not Me.NewRecord Then
    'movenext 'or what ever method used
    msgbox "this is the last record"
end if
