    need to use vba to change a property to table data

    Hi,

    I am currently working a a Junior IT and am new to Access and databases in general. I have been tasked at finding a way to integrate an activex object into our database.

    What I am trying to do is have it so that when we load a report the object is autmatically populated with the relevant data from a table. Unforunetly this particular control does not have a "Control Source" property, otherwise I would just modify that. I have successfully made it so that I can change the property of the object in question using vba. What I would like to know is if there is any way I can have vba insert table data, much like I would do using "control source" (if it were available).

    What activex object is involved? Regardless, I doubt this can be done.

    it is a custom built controller for doing QR Code generation. I have already contacted the developer too see if we can get the controller improved. Google has not been much help, there are hundreds of examples for using VBA to copy into a table but not from.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
