Save Method [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003

The Save method carries out the Save action in Visual Basic.

expression.Save(ObjectType, ObjectName)

expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

AcObjectType can be one of these AcObjectType constants.
acDataAccessPage
acDefault default
acDiagram
acForm
acFunction
acMacro
acModule
acQuery
acReport
acServerView
acStoredProcedure
acTable

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.

Remarks

For more information on how the action and its arguments work, see the action topic.

If you leave the objecttype and objectname arguments blank (the default constant, acDefault, is assumed for the objecttype argument), Microsoft Access saves the active object. If you leave the objecttype argument blank, but enter a name in the objectname argument, Microsoft Access saves the active object with the specified name. If you enter an object type in the objecttype argument, you must enter an existing object's name in the objectname argument.

If you leave the objecttype argument blank, but enter a name in the objectname argument, you must include the objecttype argument's comma.

Note  You can't use the Save method to save any of the following with a new name:

  • A form in Form view or Datasheet view.

  • A report in Print Preview.

  • A module.

  • A data access page in Page view.

  • A server view in Datasheet view or Print Preview.

  • A table in Datasheet view or Print Preview.

  • A query in Datasheet view or Print Preview.

  • A stored procedure in Datasheet view or Print Preview.

The Save method, whether it's run in the current database or in a library database, always saves the specified object or the active object in the database in which the object was created.

Example

The following example uses the Save method to save the form named "New Employees Form". This form must be open when the code containing this method runs.

DoCmd.Save acForm, "New Employees Form"
		


Applies to | DoCmd Object
