No but you can build a macro one step at a time and come very close.

Thee is not a built in solution but there is a third-party solution for this:

Total Visual CodeTools Macro Recorder

The Macro Recorder is a very powerful tool that lets you record a complex series of keystrokes and replay them directly inside your VB6 or VBA Editor in Microsoft Office, Access, Excel, etc.. It's ideal for situations where the same set of tasks need to be repeated.

Note: In Access a Macro is not VBA like the Macros in the other Office Apps like Word and Excel.

Access Macro are very limited in powered. It is common with Desktop Access database for  developers yo use only the AutoExec and AutoKeys macros if at all.. Everything is done with VBA code in Modules.

ALl the VBA code I write could never be recorded since there is not any keyboard or mouse equivalents. That is probably why there has not been a great need for a Macro recorder..

Knowing there is no way to record a macro stops me from looking.  Recording Macros and converting them to VB was a good tool to get basics to modify.   Too bad, sometimes the newest is not always the greatest...
