Converting Macro to VBA? Can you convert back?

Hello,

I created a macro using the Access GUI, but then I wanted to add some extra code. So I selected the option 'Convert Macros to Visual Basic'. This was great as it allowed me to add some extra code snippets. But in the process it converted my macro into a module.

1) Am I able to convert this module back to a macro?
2) Can I run module's like macros?

I wouldn't worry about converting a module to a macro. Yes you can. What exactly is the code you are using to call the macro/module?

Hi Emil,

Below is the code snippet. The reason that I ask whether I can convert the module back to a macro, is because I don't know how to use (or run) modules. I only converted the macro to Visual Basic code so I could add in some more parameters that weren't visible in the Access Macro GUI.

Is there a way to look into the VB code of a macro without converting it into a module?

'------------------------------------------------------------
' mac_excel_patient_export
'
'-
Function mac_excel_patient_export()
On Error GoTo mac_excel_patient_export_Err
 
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, 10, "qry_excel_patient", "C:\data.xls", True, "Patientsheet"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, 10, "qry_excel_treatment", "C:\data.xls", True, "Treatmentsheet"
 
mac_excel_patient_export_Exit:
    Exit Function
 
mac_excel_patient_export_Err:
    MsgBox Error$
    Resume mac_excel_patient_export_Exit
 
End Function

Open in new window

What is the code you use to call the macro? Is it a button? At any rate all you need do is substitute the name of the Function where you are calling the Macro. For instance:
Call mac_excel_patient_export
That code will run the function. You may not even need to use the key word "Call" but I'm not sure about that.

Thanks Emil. I ended up attaching the 'basic' version of the macro to a button - then I viewed the code of the macro and ended up making the alterations there. It was a kind of 'the long way around' but it worked.
