Entering Races with Race ID numbers already existing

When entering and positioning new races by changing the race ID number, and an existing Race ID number is chosen in error, a database message comes up informing the user of the mistake and offering to RETRY OR CANCEL.  RETRY continues to try the error with no success.  CANCEL  must be used and a non-conflicting ID number must be used.  PROVIDING NO CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN ENTERED.
If the Race ID number is a duplicate and entered in error and candidates are also entered, there is no way back.  After RETRY and CANCEL then EXCEPTION.  The only way out is the three fingered salute to end task.
Should be worth a beer
