Troubleshooting Macros

Although it’s nice to think that every macro you write will run correctly the first time you code it, the reality is that sometimes it won’t. Usually you’ll build a simple macro, test it, get it working, and then add more complex statements and so on until you get the final version. One way you’ll know that your macro isn’t working is when you see the Action Failed dialog box, shown in Figure 13.18. It shows you which macro has failed, what step it was on when it failed, and the arguments that were being used for that step.

Figure 13.18. The Action Failed dialog box appears when Access encounters a problem running your macro.
