  • You have a few options:

    • Create a hidden table to store such parameters
    • Create a custom database property
    • Create a registry entry (encrypted or not, that is up to you)
    • Store it in your VBA (you can password protect it, but that is very easy to bypass or distribute it as an mde which the code is not accessible)

    Below is a crude example of creating a custom db prop

    Function SetDbProp()
        On Error GoTo PropNotExist
        CurrentDb.Properties("YourPropName") = #7/4/2019#
        Exit Function
        Set prp = CurrentDb.CreateProperty("YourPropName", dbDate, #7/4/2019#)
        CurrentDb.Properties.Append prp
    End Function

    and then you can read it by doing
