Hi

Office 365 /  Access question

I have a form which calls a subroutine which is found in a module.  I am trying to adapt the following code work from a module so that I can call it from several forms.

 The call to this code will only come from the active form.   The name of the label "lblTest" will always be the the same so, I would prefer to not send the label as an argument.

Call Mod_Testme

Open in new window



Public Sub mod_testme()
    Dim TheForm As Form: Set TheForm = Screen.ActiveForm
    TheForm! lblTest.ForeColor = vbRed
End Sub

Open in new window

The code you posted should work, (note: remove the extra space after "TheForm!").
