Access 2010: Where/how to place subroutine call on progress bar form
Posted on 2013-09-18
I have a splash screen that has two progress bars on it.
I want the splash screen to run a module subroutine that takes some time. I have inserted the code for the progress bars into the subroutine.
Where do I place the code for the call to the subroutine?
The user will have no button to press, I just want the form to open, load and then run the subroutine which should update the PBs.
I cant place the call in the LOAD, because the form is not visible.
Where? and can I refresh the form from a module "generically" somehow or do I have to hardcode the form's name into the subroutine (I would rather not hard code it).
