    Hello

    I have a Save button on a form which does some data processing and then
    attempts to close the form like this:

    DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name, acSaveNo

    But when this line is invoked get error:

    Run-time error '2585'

    This action can't be carried out while processing a form or report event.

    How do I close my form when I have finished my processing tasks?

    It's OK - I have worked it out. I put code in On Enter. If I put in
    OnClick event it works.

    That should work. It does for me on a simple form I just made. Is anything
    else going on at this point? Is there any other events that might get fired
    at the same time?

    Cheers,

    Chris.
