Create Form Header/Footer In VBA

From the answers I have received, I think this extra fact might be important. I am tring to do this from another database using the access.application object.

For other properties I am using:
set frm = objaccess.forms(doc.name)
frm.recordselectors = false

when I do frm.section(formfooter).visible = true it just runs the code without error but doesn't do the job.

I am writing some code to open a form in design view and do certain formating. One thing I have come stuck on is doing the equivelant of 'Show Header/Footer' and then adding a control to the footer. If I manually show it I can then control it using code but I can't get it to show from code. Any Suggestion??

Hi regodab,

Use:

Forms!MyForm.Section(acHeader).Visible = True

Change MyForm to the real name of your form.

Hope this helps,

Issuing the following command should toggle the form's header/footer:

   DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdFormHdrFtr

What is "This"? More than one person had submitted a solution, so your reference to "this works but not quite in my situation" is quite ambigious.

It would be far better to submit a post explaining how "this" did not quite work for your situation so that we could submit solutions better suited for your situation.

Could you please at least provide a link to your "new" question?
