Modules & Macros

Once you exit out of Microsoft Visual Basic window (as you did in the previous article), you will be back in the MS Access Module section where you can see the name of your module. Underneath this name there is same code. To access the code window again or in other words to open 'auto_login' module in MS Visual Basic window.

MS Access Modules & Macros
For Visual Basic programmers, Modules object under the "All Access Objects" group provides the coding ability. It's because of Modules you can automate certain tasks that you have to do manually e.g. if you have Linked tables in your MS Access database pointing to Oracle Database, every time you open the database, the login/password screen will pop up. Utilizing the Visual Basic coding environment in MS Access, you can automate the login to Oracle Server (or MS SQL Server). We will learn in detail how to do this in the articles ahead. Teaching Visual Basic is beyond the scope of this book. If you are already a MS Visual Basic programmer then this section would just be piece a cake for you .


Automate applications with macros in Access 2007
If you have been using Access in the past, the easiest way to automate the tasks would have been by using the macros. On the other hand, programmers might have realized that writing VBA (visual basic for applications) modules is the best way to automate things in any Access database.
Access 2007 makes it very easy to create macros. In previous versions, many macros could not have been created without using VBA code but in Access 2007 new features have been added to eliminate the need of using VBA code.

Using Northwind DB template and modifying but getting errors
Could someone please help me with streamlining Northwind DB for my use? I imported some of the queries and setup similar tables and imported all of the modules/macros. But I only need to be able to enter customers, products and order. I don't need the whole inventory, shippers, purchase orders part.

But now when I go to do something like add a new order, some things don't work, like selecting a customer. ex. when I try to add a new order and select the customer drop down arrow I get the message "The record source '~sq_cOrder Details~sq_cCustomer ID' specified on this form or report does not exist." Or if I want to view an invoice, it wants shippinginformation.

Maybe I should cut out some of the macros/modules but don't know enough to do that correctly.

Exporting Multiple Objects
I want to cycle thru each object (all tables,forms,queries,macros & modules) in my database and export it to another database keeping the same name for the object. I know how to export 1 object at a time but I can't figure out how to cycle thru the object collections. Does anyone know how I should accomplish this?


Access 2007 Macros & Trust Issue
I converted a database from Access 2003 to 2007 and now the macros do not work. I have made sure that it is in a trusted location. I have selected "enable all macros". The message bar is supposed to pop up, but I have never seen it.

The error on the macros says that steps won't work if the database is not trusted.


How to export macros' commands as text?
I'm trying to devise a way to export code in an Access database as text such that I can use Csv meaningfully when I make changes. reports and modules, butalso the connection strings and SQL commands for queries, and the list of commands in all macros.

I've done all the VBA and queries, but I can't figure out how to get to macros' commands at all. I've examined all containers and documents in CurrentProject, all the Access objects in CurrentData, everything, and I can't find anything.

All I can do is save each macro as a module and then use the module-VBA system I have.

Examiner Database Design Suggestions
I am trying to create a database that will contain three tables

Examiners
Programmes
Modules

I need to be able to assign multiple programmes and modules to individual examiners

Each Examiner will be a unique record

Modules and Programmes can be assigned to multiple Examiners, although not at the same time

The main problem that I am having, is what is the best way for me to store a list of modules and programmes for each examiner?

I was originally going to use the combo box that allows you to select multiple records, however, there are hundreds of modules and this would be a slog to scroll through

Modules - efficiency and standard programming practices
When using modules to house libraries of user defined functions and code, are there any disadvantages to placing everything in 1 module within your database? Is there any performance increase to using multiple modules to break out Functions?

I'd love to here thoughts on wether or not to just use one huge module or break out code into multiple modules.

query objects in VB6
in ms access, we have objects created in the TABLE, QUERIES, FORMS, REPORTS, PAGES, MACROS, AND MODULES.

In VB6, I am not sure if there is a panel where we can create query objects and macros.

Document and print your database design
Microsoft Office Access can help you prepare printed documentation of your database's design, which you can use for offline reference and planning. Specifically, Access can help you print table relationships as depicted in the Relationship window, and can help you print the design characteristics of database objects (database objects: An Access database contains objects such as tables, queries, forms, reports, pages, macros, and modules. An Access project contains objects such as forms, reports, pages, macros, and modules.), such as object properties.
What do you want to do?
* Prepare the Relationships window for printing
* Print the Relationships window
* Print the design characteristics of database objects


Microsoft Access Reports
In this tutorial you will learn about forms, reports, macros, modules and Relationships.


Passing data between tables.
I am currently working on a split database. The Back_End contains all the tables. The Front_End contains the queries, forms, reports, modules, macros etc, etc.

I have a table named tbl_ECNList this contains fields named OriginatorID, FullName & EmailAddress.
I have another table named tbl_Employee which also contains fields named OriginatorID, FullName & EmailAddress.

I have a relationship set up between the OriginatorID fields of the two tables.
I want to automatically take the data from the FullName and EmailAddress fields from the tbl_Employee back to the tbl_ECNList when the OriginatorID is entered in the tbl_ECNList.

Can anyone help me resolve this problem ?
Do I need to add more relationships as it's not populating the Employee & EmailAddress fields at the moment


Maximun Number of Mof VBA Modules in Access 2007 DB
s,
I ask You to help me to understand if the Maximum Number of Modules defined in the Microsoft specification for an Access 2007 DB ( 1000 modules) he intends for maximun number of modules or maximum number of routine ( one module can contein more routine).
The same rule is appliable also for the modules in the Form? (es. one form with code = one module


Dependent Combo Box
I have looked through the forum and could not find an answer to my question. If this question has already been answered, please forgive me for re-asking and would you kindly post a link to the thread with my answer to research.

I have attached the report for my table relationships.

I want to add one more table for Modules for each class. There are multiple modules for each class. The students will be completing the modules at different times but the class is not complete until all the modules have been completed. I am trying to create a form that when the trainer selects a class, only the modules for that class are displayed. I know to make a depedency combo box. My issue is allowing multiple values for the second dependent Module combo box and exactly how to link Classes to Modules so when the trainer selects a module it shows as completed. Then when all the modules are completed we know the class is completed
