    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

    Good Luck

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!
