    any ideas on how to test VBA scripts running inside MS Access

    We have a product which is written in VBA of MS Access. Actually, it is executed inside MS Access. I tried to use Silk, but none of the component was recognized. has anyone had the experience?

    thank you

    what's the nature of your problem. Most of the apps I test deal with Access and VBA.

    Re: any ideas on how to test VBA scripts running inside MS Access

    I tried.
    for example, there is a menu bar, window declaration reports back a CustomWin with [MsoCommandBar], I tried to map it to many standard classes, but silk still cannot pick up any the menu item.

    same to those MDI forms, I tried to map the frame to standard class, or even tried "ignore", but I still could not find a way to let silk recognize the textfield inside that frame.

    FYI the VBA scripts I test can only be run in Access, it is NOT a standalone VB application with Access as its back-end.

    Thank you very much for the help.

    window declaration cannot recognize any GUI object(i.e. Menu, Controls, Forms), silk treats them as customwin.
    I put msaccess.exe into my extension enabler, but still no luck. what do I need to do?

    Re: any ideas on how to test VBA scripts running inside MS Access

    Have you tried mapping the CustomWins to standard classes? this usually helps.

    However, I recently ran into the problem of SilkTest not being able to map certain CustomWins to standard classes. Maybe it's the version of SilkTest I'm using (5.0.2). But try mapping your GUI's to standard classes using the Class Map button in the Window Declaration Recorder. OR, from the Options menu....Options|Class Map..

    As for adding Msaccess.exe to Extension Enabler, don't bother. Access already supports CustomWins and ActiveX controls. there's no point adding it to Enabler.

    hope this helps some.

    Re: any ideas on how to test VBA scripts running inside MS Access

    Hi
    I am having the same problem with an app written in VBA running inside access.
    I see that the last reply was dated sometime in 2001 but just wanted to know if you were able to find a solution to this problem of not being able to capture the windows declarations.
