You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Consider the form called Results:

Results in continuous form

Clearly Chelsea would not normally lose like this ...

In a separate module, write a macro which:

  • Opens the form called Results in design view (use DoCmd.OpenForm)
  • Sets an object variable to refer to this form
  • Loops over all of the controls in this form, deciding for each whether it is a label, a textbox or something else, and adding 1 to the appropriate total
  • Writes out the final statistics

The output from your macro should look like this:

Output listing numbers of each control

The 2 other controls are actually combo boxes

To find the type of a control, use a command like: IF TypeOf c Is TextBox THEN

Run your macro to check it works!
