    Referencing and Changing A Form Module Variable From A Module

    I would like to reference and subsequently change the value of a variable I have in a form module from another module..



    So, in the form named frm_order, the variable is in the form's module and is named frm_var_1. This variable is declared as a public variable.

    I then created a module via the module tab called mod_check, in which I want to reference and change the variable frm_var_1.

    Is this possible?

    Also, what is the appropriate way to refer to these types of modules. I would imagine anything created in a form is a 'Form' module. What about modules created using the modules tab? What is the technical name for them?

    Thanks for any assistance..

    that doesn't really seem normal, but I've heard it being done.

    vba has an extensibility library in it. If I remember right, you don't need any externals for it. search the reference list for "vba extensibility". that's the only way that I know of, that you can modify the code in the vba project from code in the same vba project.

    it works fine, as I've used it plenty of times.

    Public variables outside of any procedure in the code module of a Form become properties of the Form. You can then reference them through the Forms collection.
    Forms.frm_order.frm_var_1 = What ever you want...
