Hour 13. Creating Macros > Running an Access Macro

Running an Access Macro

You have learned quite a bit about macros, but you have not yet learned how to execute them. The macro execution process varies, depending on what you're trying to do. You can run a macro from the Macro design window, from the Macros tab, from a Form or Report event, or by selecting a menu or toolbar option. The following sections cover the first three methods. Hour 24, “Finishing Touches,” covers invoking a macro from a menu or toolbar option.

Running a Macro from the Macro Design Window

You can easily execute a macro from the Macro design window. It's simple to run a macro without subroutines: You just click Run on the Macro Design toolbar or choose Run | Run. Access executes each line of the macro, unless you have placed conditions on specific macro actions. After you click the Run button of the mcrOpenClients macro (shown in Figure 13.13), Access opens the frmClients form.
