Before Update

Use the Before Update Event in Microsoft Access VBA


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'll show you how to use the Before Update event to cancel the editing of a field if certain conditions are or are not met. For example, you can see if a record is "locked" by a manager and require a password before unlocking it. 

Michaela from Winston-Salem, North Carolina (a Gold Member) asks: I watched your InputBox video a few days ago. That was awesome. Thank you. Is there any way to just password protect a few specific fields on a form, instead of the whole form? I want everyone to be able to see fields like credit limit, but I only want managers to be able to edit them if they're locked.
