I have this code that I have adapted from a post i found on here.
I want to close all open reports in the current database

The code is in the Timer event of a hidden form (frmRprtTimer) that opens when any report opens.

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Timer()
On Error GoTo Err_Form_Timer
Dim rpt As Report
Dim db As Database
Dim cont As Container
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    Set cont = db.Containers("Reports")
    For Each rpt In cont
        DoCmd.Close
    Next rpt
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmRprtTimer"
Exit_Form_Timer:
    Exit Sub
Err_Form_Timer:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Form_Timer
End Sub

I keep getting an error.
Can anyone help?

when you close the report via docmd.close you have to specify the type and report name (like your timer)
eg

docmd.close acreport, rpt.name

try this alternative


Private Sub Form_Timer()
    CloseAllReports
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmRprtTimer"
End Sub

Private Sub CloseAllReports()

    Dim i As Integer
    Dim sName As String
    
    For i = 0 To CurrentDb.Containers("Reports").Documents.count - 1
        sName = CurrentDb.Containers("Reports").Documents(i).Name
        Debug.Print "Closing", sName
        DoCmd.Close acReport, sName
    Next i
    
End Sub

Open in new window

Getting answers and code from here has taught me a lot, and is much appreciated.
I have managed to build a decent Stock database with yours and other's help.
Is there a book or some other refernece that you would recommend that I could learn more about coding in VBA?
