    Message Box with a name variable

    Hi all,

    I have a message box that I want to add someone's name to the end of but that name will vary depending on which record the user happens to be on.

    So, basically if I want to update multiple records for say Joe Bloggs all at once I waNT THe message box to read "Are you sure you want to update all records for Joe Bloggs"?

    I want the box to know it is Joe Bloggs by accessing a field on the form that is open.

    Thanks in advance,
    Rich.
