Module Property [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]

You can use the Module property to specify a form module or report module. Read-only Module object.


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


The Module property is available only by using Visual Basic and is read-only in all views.

The Module property also returns a reference to a specified Module object.

Use the Module property to access the properties and methods of a Module object associated with a Form or Report object.

The setting of the HasModule property of a form or report determines whether it has an associated module. If the HasModule property is False, the form or report does not have an associated module. When you refer to the Module property of that form or report while in design view, Microsoft Access creates the associated module and sets the HasModule property to True. If you refer to the Module property of a form or report at run-time and the object has its HasModule property set to False, an error will occur.

You could use this property with any of the properties and methods of the module object.


The following example uses the Module property to insert the Beep method in a form's Open event.

Dim strFormOpenCode As String
Dim mdl As Module

Set mdl = Forms!MyForm.Module
strFormOpenCode = "Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)" _
    & vbCrLf & "Beep" & vbCrLf & "End Sub"
    With mdl
        .InsertText strFormOpenCode
    End With
