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.

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.

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

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.

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.

query objects in VB6

Microsoft Access Macros
The following articles contain useful information about using macros in Microsoft Access 97 and converting macros to Visual Basic for Applications code.
Macros are very useful for automating simple tasks, such as carrying out an action when the user clicks a command button. You don't need to know how to program to use macros. Macros can perform a number of the common tasks that you can also use Visual Basic code to perform. However, using Visual Basic code instead of macros gives you much more flexibility and power, and there are many things you can only do in code, such as returning values or iterating through recordsets.

Database Corruption & Repair
A Microsoft Access database may consist of data and indexes as well as the database objects: tables, queries, reports, forms, macros and modules. The best way to protect against loss of data and databases due to corruption is to backup your databases often. Microsoft Access provides a Compact and Repair utility to assist in recovering corrupted databases. However, these utilities have limitations and may not fully recover the database, its objects or its data management functions.

Going beyond Web Macros: Using Event Receivers & .NET with Access Services
One challenge in Access Services is ensuring that the logic behind various objects will be portable between Access itself and the SharePoint site hosting the Access web database. To that end, the Access team has used macros to support the goal of portability. In practical terms, this means we cannot use VBA behind the Access objects in context of a web browser.
