Problems with saving the record - some fields don't save until another edit and save

Preview
Having some problems with a form. I have code in command buttons and code in the form to handle saving a dirty record but there are some issues:

1) saving some fields at time of record entry shows "Null" until the record is saved and another edit is done then the fields show related data.

2) Saving dialog box sometimes triggers before all fields are entered.

I am trying to get things working with some protection on data entry but it is a struggle. Keep in mind that there are a few related fields that are there for testing purposes. Those are marked "REF"

I am attaching the form and some of the necessary table info for review.
 

Hide VBA code from users

Preview
If your database contains Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code, you can hide that code by saving your Microsoft Office Access database in the .accde file format. Saving a database as an .accde file compiles all VBA code modules, removes all editable source code, and compacts the destination database. Your VBA code retains its functionality, but the code cannot be viewed or edited. In general, the database will continue to function as usual — you can still update data and run reports.

Cancel saving a record

Preview
Just a quick one today. wondered if anyone has any (nice, easy to understand) ways of stopping a record saving to a table.
I have a 'cancel' command button on my form but even when pressed the record still saves in the table as I have an autonumber field (so it just saves the autonumber and leaves the other fields blank)?
Any advice would be very welcome; I have had a look at other posts which describe setting a global variable and using the 'Cancel = True', with focus on the before update event - I did try this yesterday but couldn't get it to work properly; it was still saving the record in the table. I'm still in the testing phases of my database and keep ending up with hundreds of records unnecessarily

Access 2007- Find a Record Command Button on Form Doesn't Work

Preview
I created an Update Record Form to update existing recordsthat are stored in a table with a find record button that no longer works.

When I first created the Find Record Command Button it worked beautifully, just as intended, I have spend HOURS researching and trial and error trying to get this button to work again by trying different VBA codes and no luck.

Twice, the find record button actually worked and when I exited the form after saving my changes, and went back in and tried it, it stopped working again. I don't understand.

I need to create a VBA code that allows me to find a record based upon any of 13 fields. For instance, I need for the button to work if someone wanted to search according to File Type, orOwner, or Document Number, and so forth.
