Application.Run on procedure with same name in different modules RRS feed

  • Question

  • Lets say I have two modules: Module1 and Module2 in the same project

    They both have the function MyFunction()

    Using this line in the same project,


    how would I specify which one to use? I tried,


    but it couldn't find the procedure (error 2517). I need to use the Run() method because I can only pass in String values of a function to call. This isn't a problem right now, but I just want to be sure in the future.

    I'm using Access 2013.

  • Re: Can't find procedure

    Are the modules or functions declared as Private?.  That could be the problem.
    Separate names for the functions would also help... MyFunction1 & MyFunction2

  • Both of the modules are public. I'm calling the Application.Run method inside a Form's code. So yes, using unique function names is the only way I guess. I was reading

    And it showed this example.

    Application.Run "MyProject.MyModule.MyProcedure"
    I tried that syntax and got the same error (2517).
