Cancelling the opening of a form?

    I'm sure this is an easy one: I have a handler in my Form_Open that checks
    for valid inputs. In the case of invalid ones, I'd like to put up an error,
    and then NOT open the form.

    DoCmd.Close closes the entire app, I assume because the form is not yet
    open. Is there a trick to this?

    Simply put Cancel = True in the form's Open event if you don't want it to
    open.

    Thanks, I knew it would be simple.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
