WISE OWL EXERCISES
ACCESS VBA MACROS EXERCISES
Access VBA Macros | Looping exercise | Access objects to list out tables/forms
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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.
Create a module called modLooping.
Create a subroutine called ListTables which lists out the names of all of the tables in your database to the immediate window, by looping over all of the Access objects in the AllTables collection of the CurrentData object!
Note that the AllTables collection also includes system tables beginning with MSys, so you need to strip these out.
The output from your macro should be something like this:
The MSys tables are excluded
If you have time, write a similar macro called ListForms to list out all of the forms in your database to the immediate window.
Save and close your module.
