Ms access screen updating off

Rated 3.93/5 based on 665 customer reviews

I've only used that a couple of times, when I wanted the look of a report with the interactivity of a form (though it is read only).

I know you can change its record source while its open.

Echo does: As a matter of fact, the reason this procedure exists at all is because the techniques used in this topic work great in Access 2002 and later, but may not work correctly in earlier versions?

it may be that if you're running Access 2000 or earlier, using Application.

Any other way I tried resulted in run-time error 2451, "The report 'myreport' you entered is misspelled or refers to a report that isn't open or doesn't exist." if it is closed or run-time error 2771, "The bound or unbound object frame you tried to edit does not contain an OLE object." if it is already open.

I don't get any errors when I put it into design view. That works just fine, but I am open to it if you have them.

You can use a form's Painting property to disable updates to that form, but some activities still seem to show through or cause flashing on the screen. Sometimes you need more control over screen repainting than you get with either Form. a string indicating text to be displayed within the status bar while screen updating is disabled. This sample form simply opens three reports in design mode and then closes them.

You can also optionally pass the method a second parameter?

I have this macro that deletes and importing multiple tables and the flickering kinda irritates me.

I don't think the code will work in either scenario. I am using a pop up form over the report to update it on request.

If you get there, I'd try changing the settings in the open event of the report. It should also be faster, since you wouldn't be opening/closing/opening the report. I don't see anyway around closing the report first and reopening it, at least under this current scenario.

It is typically 5 to 10 times quicker (don’t catch me here it depends on what you really do) than VBA.

In my application I put my report into design mode to make some changes, save it and then reopen it in print preview.
