Access.Application - replace form with variable

Recommended Posts

pete1234

I'm writing a script to interact with a few forms in Access, and I was wondering if it was possible to replace my form name with a variable. Right now I have:

$AccessApp = ObjCreate("Access.Application")
$AccessApp.OpenCurrentDatabase ($Database); Variable declared earlier
$AccessApp.Visible = True
$AccessApp.DoCmd.OpenForm ("frmMainMenu")
$AccessApp.Forms.frmMainMenu.txtStartDateDue.Value = @MON & "/" & @MDAY & "/" & StringRight(@YEAR, 2)

Works great. But I was wondering if there was a way to replace Forms.frmMainMenu with something like Forms.$FormName. I obviously tried that and it didn't work, so I was just wondering if there was a way to do it that I'm not aware of.

Thanks!

You might get away with:
Execute('$AccessApp.DoCmd.OpenForm ("' & $sVar & '")')

;)
