05 – Switchboard Forms – Calling Functions

In this post, we will be showing you how to call a function from a Swtichboard.

Being able to call code from a Switchboard is very useful as it gives us the flexibility to determine how we open our forms and reports. In the video, we show you how to use a filter to open up the Supplier's form. This enables us to only view records that are relevant to what we are looking for and is a much more efficient way of working.

    I’ve studied the code for this and pretty much understand what you’re doing. I want to do something similar but I want my filter to open a report that’s populated with a query. Is this possible?

    • Steve Winkler says:

      I’m trying to figure out if this is possible to do without VBA? I’m playing around with criteria in the query but am having trouble handling situations where a combo box might have a null value.

      It is definitely possible.
