Form events offer you the power to control all aspects of the
user interface including control over navigation, implementation of data
integrity and validation procedures through visual basic event programming.
Afterupdate event is triggered and the entire record is
updated and the data is saved in the database when:
The control loses the focus
The user presses ENTER or TAB
We have dozens of downloadable Access small business databases for you to learn and examine.
15 years ago we were putting Access database on the web using Active Server Page (ASP) programming language for the user interface. See examples of Access on the Internet.
The focus leaves the record
The user clicks Save Record on the Records menu
Access Event Tutorial - AfterUpdate VBA:
In this AfterUpdate event example we requery a grand total field on the master
form after records are updated in the detail form:
Private Sub Form_AfterUpdate()
Note: When validating form field values it is important to know that the
OldValue property isn't set to the updated value until after the
event for the form occurs.
If you decide to cancel the update the value of the OldValue property
replaces the changed value in the control.
New with Microsoft

design view or datasheet view of the table. You can create a macro run run
code now for the After Update table event. This new capability
significantly extends the power and flexibility of Access 2010.
