Action was Cancelled Error

Action was Cancelled Error

I am developing a small database using the engine supplied with VB 4.0 Pro. When I try to update an entry, I get the following run-time error: “Run-Time Error 3426: Action Cancelled by Associated Object” I checked the list of errors using the online help, and found no such error listed. Can you help me out?

This error really means that you tried to update a record without first doing an Edit or AddNew first. There is a bug in the documentation.
