Turn off committing?

I have a database that opens a window for editing a record. I have an OK button that commits the changes, and a Cancel button that reverts the data.

I would like to be able to turn off the committing when a user clicks outside the field. If I turn off auto-committing, it asks the user to commit the changes. I don't want it to even do that. I would like the layout to ignore the clicks altogether.

Any suggestions?

Version: Developer v7

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

I don't think you can.

You might want to go back to the "old" method: let users enter into global fields which are then Set ino the proper fields when saved.

I think the original poster wants the record not to auto-save, but only save when a button is clicked on rather than when the user exits the record.

OfficeMoMo's demo put a button on the layout that essentially prevented the user from exiting the fields. It works as long as the user cannot reach a portion of the layout that isn't covered by the button.
