there is no way to set those in VBA
if you want to do it in codes, you have to change the registry setting

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VBA\6.0\Common


BackgroundCompile Dword   (0 = Unchecked, 1 = Checked)
CompileOnDemand, Dword  (0 = Unchecked, 1 = Checked)

hi RgGray3,
<why would you need/want to toggle this via code?>
I would like to be able to initialize these options to my preferred values whenever I open a database (in case I had chanegd them temporarily, or in case I copy my database to another PC).

Interesting...   It's not a setting I have given much thought to changing.

OK   well as stated by Capricorn1...  those settings are in the registry...  (Thanks Cap......) Sure enough those and a few others are hanging out there.
So you would need to update the registry..

There are API routines that allow you to read and write to the registry
(Angels..  tread carefully)
Create a wrapper to toggle the specific entries.

Check MS KB....
