Hi,
I have these codes

Option Compare Database

Public Function InitApplication()
Dim strTokens() As String
Dim strToken() As String

strCommand = Command()
strTokens = Split(strCommand, "&")
For i = 0 To UBound(strTokens)
  strToken = Split(strTokens(i), "=")
  If strToken(0) = "Report" Then strReport = strToken(1)
  If strToken(0) = "UserName" Then strUserName = strToken(1)
  If strToken(0) = "Password" Then strPassword = strToken(1)
Next i

If strUserName <> "" And strPassword <> "" Then
  'bypass login dialog; just validate login
  If Not IsValidLogin(strUserName, strPassword) Then DoCmd.Quit

Else
  DoCmd.OpenForm "Logon"

If strReport <> "" Then DoCmd.OpenReport strReport

Open in new window


within one module of .adp project, written by Access 2007. How to ensure such codes would be fired upon the startup of the project?

It is a little complicated since the connection to SQL is established before any code runs. See this accepted solution for several workarounds. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS_Access/Q_25342305.html#a27667828

You can create an AutoExec macro which calls the InitApplication function. Note, a connection will be established before the macro runs.

Create a new macro, name it AutoExec, set it to run InitApplication.

Must we run it through one Excel file, right? Can I have more details to refer to the module of one .adp access project?

I'm not sure how Excel is in the picture, an adp is an access interface used to access sql db's.

If there is a way to directly point to one report within one .adp project, I think better to have one example/demonstration for doing this. Thanks.
