Default Delete button

I used to get a warning message before deleting a record. I no longer get a
message, it just deletes the record immediately upon clicking the delete
button. I know I can manually add code to fix this, but I would like to know
why it stopped working automatically. I am using Access 2007 - the database
was converted from 2003. I tried creating a new form with the delete button
and i do get the warning.
Is there an easy fix for this?

This commonly happens when you have code that turns the warnings off with
the statement "DoCmd.SetWarnings False", without subsequently turning them
on again with "DoCmd.SetWarnings True". People often turn off warnings so
as to execute an action query without a prompt. However, if you omit to
turn them on again, they'll stay off. It is crucial, if you turn off
warnings, that you have good error-handling inplace to ensure that there is
no way the procedure can be exited, even if an error occurs -- without
turning them on again.

Thank you for your reply. However, I did not have any code as you mentioned
below that would turn the warnings off. I only used the standard delete
button that is created with the wizard. the odd thing is, it works in some of
the forms, and the code is exactly the same as the ones that dont work.

Private Sub Delete_Record_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Delete_Record_Click
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 8, , acMenuVer70
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 6, , acMenuVer70
Exit_Delete_Record_Click:
Exit Sub
Err_Delete_Record_Click:
MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Delete_Record_Click
End Sub

The wizards produce outdated code, but it should still work the same. If
you really don't have any code that turns warnings off, I don't know why you
would get warnings on some forms and not on others.

If you'd like to send me a copy of your database and a list of steps to
reproduce the problem, I'll have a look at it, time permitting. Please be
sure to compact and zip the database to minimize the size. You can send it
to the address derived by removing NO SPAM and ".invalid" from the reply
address of this message. If that address isn't visible to you, you can get
my address from my web site, which is listed in my sig. Do *not* post my
real address in the newsgroup -- I don't want to be buried in spam and
viruses.
