    GPS Coordinates added to an access form


    Hi, I am trying to work out how to add GPS coordinates from a field computer's internal GPS and drop then into a form for inclusion in a db table. I can find info about Google Maps which is not relevant and ..so on and so forth. Nothing seems to address this question. Nay help would be greatly appreciated. The computer is running 365 apps.
    cheers, Bruce

    not something I've ever considered but found this link

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ies/gps-bumper

    so basically you will need to use vba to access the system.gps properties

    this link may help with that

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/off...ication.system

    it may also be the environ function can return this information.
