Echo does: As a matter of fact, the reason this procedure exists at all is because the techniques used in this topic work great in Access 2002 and later, but may not work correctly in earlier versions?it may be that if you're running Access 2000 or earlier, using Application.I am developing a culmination of VBA programs embedded in an excel file (named "Dashboard.xlsm" and an access file "Dashboard.accdb").
Sub generate FRMPComprehensive_Button Click(Optional sheet Name As Variant) Application. Special Folders("Desktop") & "\Dashboard Exports" Application. Screen Updating = False If Is Missing(sheet Name) Then sheet Name = Application. ", "Sheet Selection") If sheet Name = "False" Then Exit Sub Else End If If File Folder Exists(directory Path) = 0 Then Application.
The second approach is possible - you just need to pass the Excel object to Access, but then you'd be using Excel to automate Access to automate Excel. Run "generate FRMPReport_Access", report Workbook Path generate FRMPReport_Access report Workbook Path, app Access '...
You'll need to move the Sub generate FRMPComprehensive_Button Click(Optional sheet Name As Variant) '... End Sub Public Sub generate FRMPReport_Access(excel Report File Location As String, app Access As Access.
You may find, depending on the version of Access you're using, that this method of disabling screen updates isn't perfect.
Because Access has no idea that you've turned them off, Access itself occasionally turns on screen updates.
You can use a form's Painting property to disable updates to that form, but some activities still seem to show through or cause flashing on the screen. Sometimes you need more control over screen repainting than you get with either Form. a string indicating text to be displayed within the status bar while screen updating is disabled. This sample form simply opens three reports in design mode and then closes them.
