The RunMacro method carries out the RunMacro action in Visual Basic. For more information on how the action and its arguments work, see the action topic.
DoCmd.RunMacro macroname[, repeatcount][, repeatexpression]
The RunMacro method has the following arguments.
A string expression that's the valid name of a macro in the current database.
If you run Visual Basic code containing the RunMacro method in a library database, Microsoft Access looks for the macro with this name in the library database and doesn't look for it in the current database.
A numeric expression that evaluates to an integer, which is the number of times the macro will run.
A numeric expression that's evaluated each time the macro runs. When it evaluates to False (0), the macro stops running.
You can use macrogroupname.macroname syntax for the macroname argument to run a particular macro in a macro group.
If you specify the repeatexpression argument and leave the repeatcount argument blank, you must include the repeatcount argument's comma. If you leave a trailing argument blank, don't use a comma following the last argument you specify.
chris.RunMacro Method Example
The following example runs the macro Print Sales that will print the sales report twice:
DoCmd.RunMacro "Print Sales", 2
