Is there a way to change the text of the error message you get when you have a duplicate entry of your primary key? The error message I get is
:eek: "The changes you requested to the table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, primary key, or relationship. Change the data in the field or fields that contain duplicate data, remove the index, or redefine the index to permit duplicate entries, and try again." Any ideas would be great. Thx.

As far as I know there is no way to change these, or any other similar, messages.

What are you actually trying to do?

How are you getting duplicates?

I was duplicating records on purpose. I am getting ready to roll out my database to the people I work with and some aren't the brightest crayons the the box if ya know what I mean and I already know that I am going to get tons of calls asking what they are doing wrong just by the standard message. Basically I just want a message to pop up if they have a duplicate title telling them to change it. Any thoughts?

What are you, or the other users, actually doing that could cause these duplicates?
