Hi,
See attached.

I am creating some simple forms with buttons to call other forms.

The system is creating macros when I would much prefer if it just created regular VBA.

How can I prevent it from creating macros.

  With the new emphasis on macros once again, I don't think you'll find a switch to turn it off.  You can turn off the Wizard, but I don't believe there is anything to make it generate VBA code rather then a macro.

if you are using the wizard to create the button, then you can not turn off the creation of embedded macro.

you can, convert the macro created to vba

 Note that there is a "Covert Form Macro's to VBA" on the ribbion.

  However Microsoft is really trying to get people to move away from the VBA, mostly so that DB's can be published via Sharepoint.

Thanks all,


I "Saved As" to 2003 and the problem is gone.   Not very satisfactory though.
