Consider the form called Results:
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:
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!
