My OS is windows 7 and I am designing a Report.  I have tried to look for the "On Action", but I cannot seem to find it.  I have selected the Report in the property section and in all the tabs I cannot see it. The report is just a simple address block. thank u.

No On Action for a Form there.  Are you thinking of custom Menu items ?

<U would have to see my previous posts on Access>
It would be nice if you provided a link...
;-)

<I am trying to reference a Function. >
Reference a function how, where?

Again, can you please take a step back and provide a clear detailed explanation of exactly what it is you are trying to accomplish here? (and provide some info on this "mysterious" function)
;-)


You can reference a function from anywhere in your app if it is in a code Module.
The you can "Call" it like so, using VBA:
Call YourFunction(YourArguments)

Or reference it in a textbox by setting the controlsource as:
=YourFunction(YourArguments)

Joe, I did some digging, actually it is Stephen Leban's code from here:
http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0050.htm

OnAction seems to be a custom property of the control

jegajothy,

Did you download the sample file?

There are explicit instructions in the link that explain how this works...
The sample file also contains a "ReadMe" form.

Without any context (any details on what you have already), it is difficult to say why this is not working for you.

Again, instead of just saying "I'm trying to reference a Function"
... can you please take a step back and provide a clear detailed explanation of exactly what it is that you have already.

Possibly providing a sample db.
Sample database notes:
1. Back up your database(s).
2. Combine the front and back ends into one database file.
3. Remove any startup options, unless they are relevant to the issue.
4. Remove any records unless they are relevant to the issue.
5. Delete any objects that do not relate directly to the issue.
6. Remove any references to any "linked" files (files outside of the database, Images, OLE Files, ...etc)
7. Remove any references to any third party Active-x Controls (unless they are relevant to the issue)
8. Remove, obfuscate, encrypt, or otherwise disguise, any sensitive data.
9. Compile the code. (From the database window, click: Debug-->Compile)
10. Run the compact/Repair utility.
11. Remove any Passwords and/or security.
12. Post explicit steps to replicate the issue.
13. Test the database before posting.

In other words, ...post a database that we can easily open and immediately see the issue, and if applicable, also include a Graphical representation of the Exact results you are expecting.
