Hello All,

I think this may be a tough nut to crack but ....i want to open an excel file via access VBA. Now the access vba should be able to access userform2 of that excel workbook and fill one of the textbox.

Is that possible?
VBC or something?

Thank you

I think it might be possible but I have to ask why you want/need to access the Excel userform to fill in a textbox?

What does filling in the textbox do?

Also, in the Access VBA you currently have are you automating Excel?

ok, so there is a excel workbook that is pass protected.so when users open the workbook, the workbook shows up a userform that requires a pass value. once the user enter in the pass value and hit ok, the workbook filters the data as per the login privilege and then show up the info in sheet1.

That's the excel piece.

For the access  - i have all the data tables stores in he access. And have a custom "refresh" vba button. When  press it, it basically copies the records set from the access table and then  puts in sheet2 on workbook.

now the problem - when the (access) VBA refresh happens, the userform shows up (as it is in the workbook on open event on the worokbook)

so how do i do the access refresh from access vba and not have to worry about facing this pass form...

Thank you,

Like this

    Set objXL = New excel.Application
   ' objXL.Visible = True
 
   
    Set wkb = objXL.Workbooks.Open("\fg\wk.xlsm")

If you want to bypass the userform when the workbook opens you could disable events in Excel.
objXL.EnableEvents = False

Open in new window

However I'm not sure that's what you want to do.

Disabling events should only affect code that's triggered by an event, for example the Workbook_Open event.

There should be no problem with any other code.

How are you calling the 'workbook' macro?
