Default Edit Forms with Master/Multiple SubForms

Hi All,

I'm hoping that someone could help me out since I'm new with Access.

Database was set up as a simple data entry and reporting tool for Program Initiatives. The data entry page has main form with 9 sections (1 main section and 8 subsections). These subsections are all employed using subforms. These are all joined through the ProgramID. The Report is set up in a similar fashion with main and subreports too.

Unfortunately I ran into a couple issues.and had questions about resolving them:

* How can I save the records after everything is entered instead of as I enter them in the data entry view?
Currently, the data needs to be entered sequentially to work correctly. Is there a way to prevent the records from saving until I am done entering in all the information?

* How can I edit previously entered data in the form view?Currently, the data entry view only allows new additions; cannot edit previously entered data.

* How can I make the report searchable?
Report is not searchable because it is based on query (for the main section) and multiple SubReports (for the subsections). I have queries that make it main and subform fields searchable by returning the ProgramID, but I am having trouble tying these returned results to the Report through the ProgramID.

Thanks so much,

To manipulat data without updating the record untill you are finished seem like you need to use "Transaction Processing"

Here are the elements of this process you will need to look it up

On Error GoTo Err_Handler

Dim WrkCurrent as Workspace
Dim fInTrans as Boolean

FInTrans + False
Set wrkCurrent = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)


    fInTrans = True

WrkCurrent.CommitTrans#fInTrans = false

If fInTrans Then
End If
