Hello, I have a button to add records and I need to limit the number to 9. In my code below its bypassing the check and going to the adding of records? That's wrong with code?

Code:
   Dim intMaxNumRecs As Integer
    intMaxNumRecs = 9 'Max Number of Records to Allow
    If Me.NewRecord Then
        With Me.RecordsetClone
            If .RecordCount > 0 Then
                .MoveLast:  .MoveFirst
                If .RecordCount >= intMaxNumRecs Then
                MsgBox "You cant have more than 9 SubForm Entries"
                 End If
            End If
        End With
      Exit Sub
      Else
    Me.AllowAdditions = True
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
    txtSequentialNumber = strNxtNum
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast
    Me.AllowAdditions = False

Your exit sub appears to be in the wrong place and I would think it comes after the msgbox. However, the fact it runs tells me that it is never a new record.

Have you tried stepping through the code? Just curious...

I got it working with:

Code:
Dim intMaxNumRecs As Integer
    intMaxNumRecs = 9 'Max Number of Records to Allow
  
            If Me.Recordset.RecordCount >= intMaxNumRecs Then
                MsgBox "You cant have more than 9 SubForm Entries"
                  Exit Sub
               End If
 
    Me.AllowAdditions = True
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
    txtSequentialNumber = strNxtNum
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast
    Me.AllowAdditions = False
