Passing Form Objects To Reduce Coding Requirements

Many Access applications have form textboxes or other objects which repeat themselves many times, such as the case of a textbox where the user can enter many of the same type of items. For example, a form may have textboxes which can be populated with a total sales number.

Each of these multiple textbox contents must be edited, and the same editing code must be repeated unless the textbox objects are passed to an editing subroutine.

The example below shows a textbox / label combination repeated 5 times which must be edited in an identical manner. The example first shows how to reduce code by passing the textbox and label objects to the editing subroutine. Further down in the example illustrates the raw coding that must be completed if editing is done within each textbox AfterUpdate event.
