Setting "AllowByPassKey" in a Macro!

Hi,

How can I set the "AllowByPassKey" in a macro?

Setting it like [Databases]![Mydatabase]![Allowbypasskey] does not work, as Access does not recognize [databases] as a collection (like forms, etc...)

Greetings,

create a function to do what you want - then call the function from the macro using the runcode command from the macro.

Hope this helps

So there is no way to set it directly?

I don't know of one - but feel free to reopen the question - I can always repost my original answer if you don't find a better solution.

Good Luck

That's the only way to do it as far as I know:

Dim db As Database
Set db = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).Databases(0)
Dim pr As Property
Set pr = db.CreateProperty("AllowByPassKey", dbBoolean, False) 'Or True, depending on what you need
db.Properties.Append pr
'This will not always work (e.g. if property already exists)
'For more info see Help under "AllowBypassKey", then select "Example"
