The Dirty event occurs when the content of the specified control changes.

Version Added: Access 2007

expression .Dirty(Cancel, )

expression A variable that represents an Attachment object.




Data Type





The setting determines if the Dirty event occurs. Setting the Cancel argument to True (–1) cancels the Dirty event.

Examples of this event include entering a character directly in the text box or combo box or changing the control's Text property setting by using a macro or Visual Basic.

  • Modifying a record within a form by using a macro or Visual Basic doesn't trigger this event. You must type the data directly into the record or set the control's Text property.

  • This event applies only to bound forms, not an unbound form or report.

To run a macro or event procedure when this event occurs, set the OnDirty property to the name of the macro or to [Event Procedure].

Canceling the Dirty event will cause the changes to the current record to be rolled back. It is equivalent to pressing the ESC key.
