Embedded macro

I have not worked with embedded macros before. The previous Access developer created one in a form and I am trying to understand how to get to it to view/modify. Since it does not appear in the navigation pane, how can I do this?

In the navigation pane there is a macro "mcrImportDetails". I open that in design view and see the columns Macro name, Conditions, Action & Arguments. The macro I want to look into in the Macro name column is "Import_DailyDetails" - how do I see this in design view? Not sure if my info is vague, please let me know if I can provide any other information. I know that the macro is importing an Excel file

Run a Embedded Macro from VBA Code
I am trying to rerun an embedded macro which is attached to the AfterUpdate event of a combobox. Is there anyway of rerunning this query from VBA Code?

I have tried using:

However it says you need to insert the Macro name however I do not know what the embedded macro is called in order to refer to it


Embedded Macro's
I have been looking over a customer order db that the programmer doesn't't use any Embedded Macro's. Everything is in VBA. I use Embedded Macro's on all my cmdButtons. Whatis the advantage to not using Embedded Macro's.


Create a macro
You can create a macro (macro: An action or set of actions that you can use to automate tasks.) to perform a specific series of actions (action: The basic building block of a macro; a self-contained instruction that can be combined with other actions to automate tasks. This is sometimes called a command in other macro languages.), and you can create a macro group (macro group: A collection of related macros that are stored together under a single macro name. The collection is often referred to simply as a macro.) to perform related series of actions.
In Microsoft Office Access 2007, macros can be contained in macro objects (sometimes called standalone macros), or they can be embedded into the event properties of forms, reports, or controls. Embedded macros become part of the object or control in which they are embedded. Macro objects are visible in the Navigation Pane, under Macros; embedded macros are not.

Embedded Macro Test Strategy
Does anyone know a good way of testing embedded macros?

When you are building or reviewing the macro, Access does not permit access to any other part of your database and there are lots of reasons why it would be nice to have that ability.

The only help I have found is to have the VB window open so I can check the value of variables and test expressions while I'm building the macro conditions


Storing a DAO.RecordSet/DAO.QueryDef in a TempVar in an Embedded Macro
In an embedded macro, is it possible to use a TempVar to store a DAO.RecordSet or DAO.QueryDef? Or otherwise, is there another way to use a Recordset or QueryDef in an Embedded Macro?

For example, say I have a Table (called myTable), that has 2 fields, ID, myFieldA. I want to make a Form that has an Unbound text box (say, boxA). Then, I want to make an Embedded Macro that queries myTable, using ID as the criteria field, so that the query would return only one record.

The Macro would then temporarily store the RecordSet, so that it would populate thetextbox, boxA, with the value of myFieldA from the query.

I know about binding boxA to myFieldA. I also know how to do this using VBA. But for my purposes here, I want to keep all of the form elements Unbound, and drive the user interface with queries, using only Embedded Macros.

Then I could use smarter logic for doing things such as validating that the user fills in required boxes before writing records to the table, verifying that the user intends to save changes, etc.

(I've had enough pain dealing with Access' clunky BeforeUpdate and AfterUpdate events).


Encapsulate embedded Marco with IF THEN..
Ive recently started using access 2010 and am busy updating my A2K databases. Just started getting to grips with the beast (table level calculated fields are great). However, these new embedded macros seem to have a mind of their own.

Ive used the wizard to create a delete record button with an embedded macro and it looks good as it takes care of all possible scenarios.

Now, Ive been trying to encapsulate the 3 or so if then statements of the macro (exluding the error handling of course) in an if msgbox(.)=vbYes (or rather = 6) but no matter what I try I cant seem to move the end if to wrap the other If then statements


Ebedded Macro won't open form
I'm trying to get an embedded macro to open a form when the field is clicked. I would think this would be pretty straightforward, but apparently not. The control is a combo box and the onclick event is set for embedded macro. The macro calls OpenForm with the arguments of Reports, From,,,,Normal. I'm not even ask for anything fancy. Just want the form to open. Do you think it might be a problem because I'm trying to open it off a combo box


Printing in Landscape via an Embedded Macro

Temp Var problem
I have an embedded macro in a Close Form Button. The macro is used to run some VBA code to check that the form has been completed correctly. The macro sets a Temp Var so the the code knowsthat it was instigated by the Close Button.
....
This macro has been working fine until I added an additional sub form (with no connection to the macro) to the form then the macro was failing with the message:

"The command or action RemoveTempVar isn't available now" when you click ok it opens the macro failed message box.


HowEliminate"EmbeddeMacro"?
When I use Wizards for making a command Button in a from , Access uses Embedded Macro automatically, instead of Event procedure. I checked "always use event procedures" option in the Access Options ( Access Options--> Object Designers --> form-Report design view -- > always use event procedures ) .

But Access use "Embedded Macro" yet. How can I force Access to useEvent procedure ?

Embedded objects
Just a quick question about the embedded objects in Access.

I'm using Access 2007. When I insert an embedded object, is there a way to give the newly embedded object a new name?

When I embed a word doc, it will say."MS word document". when I embed an image, it will say "bitmap image".

Is it possible to make it reflect the actual title of the document after it is embedded
