So I am creating a menu (customizing toolbars) in Access 2003 and I want to create a menu command to run a few lines of VB Code. Is there a way to do this in Access 2003? For example, create a module with the VB coding then create a macro that will run the module?

Thanks,
Dan

the VB code that you need to run must be placed in a function in a regular module.

in the Action of your macro, you will place

RunCode


Function Name   myFunction()

I created a new module called newcpar and put the code in it. I then created a new macro and used RunCode with myFunction(newcpar) but it is not working.

Am I going about this right?

I didn't know I had to give it a function name inside the module. It works now.
