StopAllMacros Action

Hi Everyone,

I've inherited database and I am attempting to make corrections to a Macro.
The StopAllMacros had the condition listed below and did not work correctly.

MsgBox("CONTINUE MACRO? If there are any records listed on the query that
just opened, please press Cancel to exit this macro and then manually update
the crosswalk; Otherwise press OK to continue.",1)=0

I want the user to click cancel and manually review the query or click ok
and continue to run the macro. I would rather put this into VBA but I am
under a time constraint.

I would appreciate any help!

Sarita,

This appears to be constructed correctly, to provide an OK and Cancel button
on the message box, and the macro action to proceed only if the OK button is
clicked. So at this stage you are going to have to explain in more detail
what you mean by "did not work correctly". That means saying what is the
macro Action this Condition is applied to, the other significant actions in
the macro, what is actually happening (is the MsgBox showing, if so what
happens when you click the buttons on the MsgBox, any error massage, etc),
and how what is happening is different from what you desire. Thanks.

Hi Steve,

The msgbox does appear with an OK and Cancel button. I want the Cancel
button to stop the macro and the OK button to continue with the macro.

The error is: If I click Cancel it continues the macro when it should be
stopping it.

The OK button works correctly.

Was I able to clarify this better?

Sarita,

Yes, this has clarified it. Thank you. And what you have described is
exactly what should happen.

So, what is the Action that this Condition is applied to?
And are there any other Actions after this one in the macro? If so, what is
in the Condition column for these actions?

Sorry to be asking all these qquestions. But you see, I can't see your
macro, so I don't know what it does, and therefore I don't know what
"continue with the macro" means either unless you tell us. Thanks.

Just to clarify... the "=0" in the Condition expression refers to clicking
the OK button. So clicking Cancel does not stop the macro, strictly
speaking - clicking Cancel simply fails to meet the condition of clicking
OK, so therefore that action should not be performed.

Hi Steve,

I've never worked with Macros before so bare with me. This is the only
StopAllMacros with this condition below in the Macro.

The action is StopAllMacros.

The condition: MsgBox("CONTINUE MACRO? If there are any records listed on
the query that just opened, please press Cancel to exit this macro and then
manually update the crosswalk; Otherwise press OK to continue.",1)=0

after this the next action is a query.

I understand "=0" applies to the OK only and Cancel is suppose to stop the
query but it doesn't. So what condition do I need so when I click Cancel it
stops the macro.

Sarita,

If the Condition is being aplied to the StopAllMacros action (or probably
just a StopMacro action would be sufficient), then you want this action to
be executed if the Cancel button is clicked, not the OK button as at
present. Therefore you need =1 and not =0, i.e.
MsgBox("CONTINUE MACRO? If there are any records listed on the query that
just opened, please press Cancel to exit this macro and then manually update
the crosswalk; Otherwise press OK to continue.",1)=1

Hi Steve,

I ran the macro with the changes you listed below. It worked but in the
opposite direction meaning: when you clicked OK the macro stopped but if you
clicked Cancel the macro continued. So I made a minor adjustment and used 2
instead of 1 and it worked perfectly!

For Example:

Action: StopAllMacros
Condition: MsgBox("CONTINUE MACRO? If there are any records listed on the
query that just opened, please press Cancel to exit this macro and then
manually update the crosswalk; Otherwise press OK to continue.",1)=2

Thank you so much for all your help.
