Modules Collection

Access Developer Reference

The Modules collection contains all open standard modules and class modules in a Microsoft Access database.


All open modules are included in the Modules collection, whether they are uncompiled, are compiled, are in break mode, or contain the code that's running.

To determine whether an individual Module object represents a standard module or a class module, check the Module object's Type property.

The Modules collection belongs to the Microsoft Access Application object.

Individual Module objects in the Modules collection are indexed beginning with zero.


The following example illustrates how to use the Modules collection to loop through the open modules. The example prints the name if each open module in the Immediate window.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub PrintOpenModuleNames()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim modOpenModules As Modules
    Set modOpenModules = Application.Modules
    For i = 0 To modOpenModules.Count - 1
        Debug.Print modOpenModules(i).Name
End Sub
