Any way to trace code

I need to trace the route an execution takes through some code.

1. Is there a built-in function to record the names of all handlers that are executed (including the name of the form within which they reside)?

2. I know I can create a table, then in each handler I can record the desired information.  Is there some VBA syntax that will allow me to record the name of the form and the name of the handler without having to hard code that info in each statement?  e.g. Form.Name, CurrentHandler.Name

you need to go into the code section of the function or event sub that you are interested in tracing. Right click the left of a line that you want exeution to stop at. When execution stops, invokethe immediate window and use the syntax starting with a question mark. Like if you wanted to see a variable value you would type ?sTheVariableName and then hit [Enter]. There you would see the current value of the variable. F8 advances the code line-by-line.

Look up help on debugging.

Good Luck !!!

Access is very weak in this area ...

1. No.
2. No.

Access developer's handbook has a class module that stores this stuff in memory and only writes it our when there is an error, I am sure you could modify it to log everything.
