OpenQuery Method [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]
The OpenQuery method carries out the OpenQuery action in Visual Basic.
expression.OpenQuery(QueryName, View, DataMode)
expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.
QueryName Required Variant. A string expression that's the valid name of a query in the current database. If you execute Visual Basic code containing the OpenQuery method in a library database, Microsoft Access looks for the query with this name first in the library database, then in the current database.
|AcView can be one of these AcView constants.|
If the queryname argument is the name of a select, crosstab, union, or pass-through query whose ReturnsRecords property is set to –1, acViewNormal displays the query's result set. If the queryname argument refers to an action, data-definition, or pass-through query whose ReturnsRecords property is set to 0, acViewNormal runs the query.
If you leave this argument blank, the default constant (acViewNormal) is assumed.
|AcOpenDataMode can be one of these AcOpenDataMode constants.|
If you leave this argument blank, the default constant (acEdit) is assumed.
For more information on how the action and its arguments work, see the action topic.
If you specify the datamode argument and leave the view argument blank, you must include the view argument's comma. If you leave a trailing argument blank, don't use a comma following the last argument you specify.
