    I have a form (loan) where I have a ComboBox (BookCode) and in that
    combobox I´ve created the following event:

    Option Explicit
    Option Compare Database

    Private Sub BookCode_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
    If Status = "Lent" Then
    MsgBox "The book is not available"
    End If
    End Sub


    so far it works, but I need to add a setfocus to fix the mouse pointer
    to the ComboBox and I have no clue on how to continue... someone suggestes
    to add

    Me.BookCode.SetFocus

    but it didn´t work, wrote it before the "End if", I don´t know if that is
    the proper place....

    If you set the cancel to true, the cusror wont exit the combo

    Private Sub BookCode_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
    If Status = "Lent" Then
    MsgBox "The book is not available"
    Cancel = True
    End If
    End Sub
