    Please, is there a way to run access Modules from Macro? Basically I am trying to run the module at certain time of the day via Windows Task Scheduler. All my Access queries are defined in a Module.

    Thanks so much

    1. Your code in the module needs to be a Function rather than a Sub.
    2. Name your macro AutoExec.
    3. The first line of your macro should be RunCode and use the expression builder or type your function name in the Function Name argument for RunCode.

    AutoExec will run when your scheduled task opens your database. It, in turn, will run your function.
