Module: CurrentProject in Category Microsoft Access : Objects from Total Visual SourceBook

Get, set, and create Microsoft Access properties for the CurrentProject (Jet or ADP database) in VBA.

This differs from the Jet/DAO databases properties.

Procedure List

Procedure Name

Type

Description

(Declarations) Declarations Declarations and private variables for the modCurrentProject module
IsProjectADP Procedure Determine if the current project is an ADP
IsProjectMDB Procedure Determine if the current project is a Jet MDB or ACCDB database
ProjectPropertyExists Procedure Does this Access database property exist?
ProjectPropertyGet Procedure Get the value of a database property
ProjectPropertySet Procedure Set a database property value
ProjectPropertyCreate Procedure Create a new database property
ADP_AllowBypassKey Procedure Set an ADP's AllowBypassKey property. If it's set to False, users can't hold the shift key down when the database loads to prevent the startup routines from running. For Jet databases, use the Database_AllowBypassKey function in module modJetDatabase.

Example Code for Using Module: CurrentProject

' Example of modCurrentProject
'
' To use this example:
' 1. Create a new form.
' 2. Create the following command buttons, and set their "On Click" event to :
'     cmdDBPropExists
'     cmdGetDBPropVal
'     cmdCreateDBProp
'     cmdSetDBPropVal
'     cmdBypassKey
' 3. Paste the entire contents of this module into the new form's module.
' 4. Paste the entire contents of this module into the new form's module.

Private Sub cmdBypassKey_Click()
  ' Sets an ADP's AllowBypassKey property.  If it's set to False, users can't hold the shift key down when the database loads to prevent the startup routines from running.
  ' For Jet databases, use the Database_AllowBypassKey function in module modJetDatabase.

  Dim Response As VbMsgBoxResult
