How to undo whole record

This tip I learned from MVP Allen Browne
Here a code, which you can place into Undo button click event:

If Me.Dirty Then
End If
If Not Me.NewRecord Then
RunCommand acCmdDeleteRecord
End If

Very useful, thanks. I was strugling with undo on a form with both bound and unbound controls and couldn't get the "DoCmd" to work properly. But this code does the trick.

i was wondering if we can bypass the prompt for deletion

i mean, if there was no prompt before deleting the record, the undo operation would have looked more realistic :)

any thoughts?

ya that works :)

tools > options > Edit/Find > Confirm (Uncheck Record Changes option)

thanks for your "prompt" reply :)

Or you could put in VBA:

DoCmd.SetWarnings (False) comes your 'undo' code
DoCmd.SetWarnings (True)

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
this way you would have the warnings only temporarly inactive.
