I’m VERY FRUSTRATED

Macro error

how do you fix "the object doesnt contain the automation object" error in a MACRO. Every fix I have seen shows a VB fix. Can it NOT be fixed in a macro??? The Access 2010 Missing Manual recommends on page 474 to learn macros before VB. I plan on going to a web site with this and "the VB powered features can't make the jump to online" quote by your book makes me wonder.

  • Hi Jerry,
    is your question related to the Access 2010 missing manual or a general question about Macros?

    If it's specifically related to a lesson or example in one of our books, we'd be happy to help find the answer. If that is the case I can forward your issue over to our book tech staff.

    If it's a general question about Macros, we're unfortunately not able to offer support for it, and I'd encourage you to contact Microsoft's support team to best answer a question of that nature. They can be reached at 1-800-642-7676.

    Cheers

  • I guess my real question is the error about the "automation object". It isnt shown anywhere in your book. As I see MANY people questioning what it is - - - how about just a simple definition somewhere in your book about what it really means. I find it hard to believe that a book staff has never run into this before.

  • Hi Jerry,
    I've only been here a little over a year and a half, and haven't heard about that issue or seen any errata posted on that topic on the books page,
    http://oreilly.com/catalog/errata.csp...

    If you want to contact the author directly, he's got a website with contact info on it.

    There may also be help available at support.microsoft.com for that issue.
    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    Cheers
