    Run a Embedded Macro from VBA Code


    I am trying to rerun an embedded macro which is attached to the AfterUpdate event of a combobox. Is there anyway of rerunning this query from VBA Code?

    I have tried using:

    DoCmd.RunMacro

    However it says you need to insert the Macro name however i do not know what the embedded macro is called in order to refer to it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think embedded macros are only meant to be run once. why rerun it? if you need to run it on any other event, write it again behind that event. there really should be no need to do something like this.

    Thanks for the reply, however, we do have a need to rerun it on that same event in order to populate our form after inserting a specific value from another form into the combobox and we need the combobox to run the searchforrecord macro again. A refresh doesnt work unfortunately.

    if you need to run something twice, write vba code or something instead. running twice, I don't think, is possible. sorry!
