Referencing Controls

How do I reference a control (or form/report) using a variable? by TrojanRabbit
Posted: 5 Aug 02

To reference a control by variable:
Me.Controls(var)
or
Form_frmName.Controls(var)
Control properties may be used with this reference also (Me.Controls(var).Name).

You can use a similar method for referring to a form or report by variable.
CurrentProject.AllForms(var).Name
CurrentProject.AllReports(var).Name

Forms(var) and Reports(var) refer to currently open forms or reports respectively.

Note that var can be an integer (index variable) or a string (name).
