This MSAccess tutorial explains how to delete a record using VBA code in Access 2003 (with step-by-step instructions).
Question: In Microsoft Access 2003/XP/2000/97, I've created a form and I want to delete the currently selected record. How do I delete the current record in the form?
Answer: In your Access form, you could create a button. On the Click event of this button, you could place the following code:
Private Sub Command1_Click() DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 8, , acMenuVer70 DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 6, , acMenuVer70 End Sub
In this example, we've created a button called Command1. When the user clicks on this button, the record currently displayed in the form will be deleted.
