Description

(Declarations) Declarations Declarations and private variables for the modAccessInformation module
GetAccessHWnd Procedure Get the window handle (Hwnd) to the Access application. If you are going to use the Windows API, there are often times when you will have to pass a window handle of your application to Windows. In most cases, that handle will be the handle of Access itself. This procedure returns that handle.
GetAccessVersion Procedure Get the Access version number
GetCodeDBName Procedure Get the name of the currently executing library database (without the path)
GetCodeDBNamePath Procedure Get the path and name of the currently executing library database
GetCodeDBPath Procedure Get the path of the currently executing library database
GetCurrentDBName Procedure Get the name of the current database (without the path)
GetCurrentDBNamePath Procedure Get the path and name of the current database
GetCurrentPath Procedure Get the path of current database
GetDatabaseVersion Procedure Get the Jet Engine version of the current database (for MDBs, not ADPs)
IsADP Procedure Determine if the current database is an ADP
IsJetDatabase Procedure Determine if the current database is an Access Jet database file (ACCDB or MDB)
IsACCDB Procedure Determine if the current database is an ACCDB file
IsMDB Procedure Determine if the current database is an MDB Jet Database file and not an ACCDB file
IsDatabaseReplica Procedure Determine if the current Jet database is a replica (for MDBs, not ADPs)
IsRuntime Procedure Determine if the Access runtime version is currently running

Example Code for Using Module: AccessInformation

' Example of modAccessInformation
'
' To use this example, create a new module and paste this code into it.
' Then run the procedure by putting the cursor in the procedure and pressing:
'    F5 to run it, or
'    F8 to step through it line-by-line (see the Debug menu for more options)

Private Sub Example_modAccessInformation()
  ' Comments: Examples of using the modAccessInformation module to retrieve information on the currently running Access version and
  '           database's format type, version, file name, path, etc. using Access VBA.
  '           See the Immediate Window for results.

  ' Get the Access version
  Debug.Print "Access version: " & GetAccessVersion()

  ' Get the Access (Jet) database version
  Debug.Print "Database version: " & GetDatabaseVersion()

  ' What kind of database is this?
  Debug.Print "Is ADP  : " & IsADP()
  Debug.Print "Is Jet  : " & IsJetDatabase()
  Debug.Print "Is ACCDB: " & IsACCDB()
  Debug.Print "Is MDB  : " & IsMDB()
  Debug.Print

  ' --------------------------------------------------------
  ' Examples using the current database

  ' Get the current database file name without path
  Debug.Print "Current database Name: " & GetCurrentDBName()

  ' Get the current database path without file name
  Debug.Print "Current path: " & GetCurrentPath()

  ' Get the current database name and full path
  Debug.Print "Current database name and path: " & GetCurrentDBNamePath()
  Debug.Print

  ' --------------------------------------------------------
  ' Examples of using getting the Code Database information.
  ' The Code Database is different from the Current database if it is being run from an Access library or add-in.

  ' Get the current code database file name without path
  Debug.Print "Code database name: " & GetCodeDBName()

  ' Get the current code database path without file name
  Debug.Print "Code database path: " & GetCodeDBPath()

  ' Get the current code database name and full path
  Debug.Print "Code database name and path: " & GetCodeDBNamePath()
  Debug.Print

  ' --------------------------------------------------------

  ' Check to see whether Access is the runtime version
  If IsRuntime() Then
    Debug.Print "App is in runtime mode"
  Else
    Debug.Print "App is not in runtime mode"
  End If

  ' Is this a replica database
  If IsDatabaseReplica() Then
    Debug.Print "Database is a replica"
  Else
    Debug.Print "Datbase is not a replica"
