MS Access Docmd.Close Example

The Access Close method carries out the Close action in Visual Basic

Below are the syntax and command options for the Close method:

Access database actions

ObjectType Optional AcObjectType.

AcObjectType can be one of these AcObjectType constants:
acDefault default
Note If closing a module in the Visual Basic Editor (VBE), you must use acModule in the objecttype argument. ObjectName Optional Variant. A string expression that’s the valid name of an object of the type selected by the objecttype argument.

Save Optional AcCloseSave.

AcCloseSave can be one of these AcCloseSave constants.

  • acSaveNo

  • acSavePrompt – default This value is ignored if you are closing a Visual Basic module. The module will be closed, but changes to the module will not be saved.

  • acSaveYes – If you leave this argument blank, the default constant (acSavePrompt) is assumed.

If you leave the objecttype and objectname arguments blank (the default constant, acDefault, is assumed for objecttype), Microsoft Access closes the active window. If you specify the save argument and leave the objecttype and objectname arguments blank, you must include the objecttype and objectname arguments’ commas.

Note If a form has a control bound to a field that has its Required property set to ‘Yes,’ and the form is closed using the Close method without entering any data for that field, an error message is not displayed. Any changes made to the record will be aborted. When the form is closed using the Windows Close button, the Close action in a macro, or selecting Close from the File menu, Microsoft Access displays an alert. The following code will display an error message when attempting to close a form with a Null field, using the Close method.

The following sample code uses the Docmd.Close method to close the form Order Review, saving any changes to the form without prompting:

DoCmd.Close acForm, “F_Orders”, acSaveYes
