BoundObjectFrame.UpdateOptions Property (Access)

You can use the UpdateOptions property to specify how a linkedOLE object is updated. Read/write Integer.

expression .UpdateOptions

expression A variable that represents a BoundObjectFrame object.

The UpdateOptions property uses the following settings.


Visual Basic




(Default) Updates the object each time the linked data changes.



Updates the object only when the control's Action property is set to acOLEUpdate or the link is updated with the OLE/DDE Links command on the Edit menu.

Normally, the object is updated automatically whenever the linked data changes, but you can tell Microsoft Access to update the data only when it receives a specific instruction to do so. For example, if other users or applications can access or change linked spreadsheet data on a form, you can use this property to specify that the linked data only be updated when the database is opened in single-user mode.

When the UpdateOptions property is set to Manual, updates don't occur based on the setting of the Refresh interval box on the Advanced tab of the Options dialog box, available by clicking Options on the Tools menu.

Note Note

When an object's data is changed, the Updated event occurs.

The following example sets the UpdateOptions property for an unbound object frame named OLE1 to update manually, and then uses the Action property to force an update of the OLE object in the control.

OLE1.UpdateOptions = acOLEUpdateManual 
OLE1.Action = acOLEUpdate
