Debugging in VBA

32,584 Recognized Expert Moderator MVP
VBA executes whenever the code is triggered from within your project.
This can be from all sorts of object events from simply opening a form to clicking on a command button.
When something doesn't work as expected, how can you determine exactly what is wrong and where?

Well, that's what this article can help you with.

With every Office application, including Access of course, there is an integrated debugger. To open the window of the debugger and to give you access to all the code associated with your project (There is one project with every database), simply press Alt-F11. This will also switch you between associated Debugger and Application windows when you're currently in either.

Scenario: This is about debugging server side scripts that make calls to middle-tier business DLLs. The server side scripts are legacy ASP 3.0 pages, and the DLLs are managed DLLs converted/developed with VB.NET. What I want from debugging is to be able to step into the methods in the DLLs called from ASP scripts using Visual Studio .NET. Background: For typical script debugging issues, you can read and follow the two documents on...

Hi everybody, My problem seems a bit clichè but I could not work around. Well I read lots of MSDN papers and discussions, but my problem is a bit different from them. When I tried to run the project in debug mode (by hitting F5) it gives an error message "Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web server.

Hi, Using VS.NET 2003, when I use 'F5' to start debugging my web app, it obviously attaches the IDE to IIS for server debugging. However, it also seems to put IE into some kind of debugging mode (for javascript debugging) This causes IE to consume loads of CPU if the page is very large. Is there any way to have debugging of server side code but leave IE in "normal" mode?

Hi All, My system: WinXP Pro, VS.NET 2003, SQL Server Personal Edition. I'm having problems with my old favourite demon, SQL Debugging from within VS.NET. I have to say I've found this particular feature to be one of the most useful and (sadly) unreliable/fragile features in VS.NET, it seems the slightest thing will break it.

Can someone tell me to what process I need to attach to be able to step through my classic ASP code in VS.net 2003. I'm working on an XP box with IIS installed.

I am currently developing a website in ASP (VBScript) using MS Visual C#.NET IDE. I just create a new "ASP.NET Web Application" and point to my local webserver (IIS) of my website address. Then I just go through each file/folder and right-click, selecting "Include in project". The IDE is nice in that it checks, verifies id tags, etc. What am wondering is whether it's possible to debug my ASP website using the MS Visual Studio.NET's...

C/C++ Programs and Debugging in Linux This tutorial will give you a basic idea how to debug a program in Linux using GDB.

VS 2008 initially didn't debug classic ASP. SP1 fixes this in some ways. You can debug if you select the debug option to "Start Without Debugging, then either attach the debugger manually or place a stop directive in the code which ends up doing the same thing. The problem with this is that you can't debug browser side Javascript in the same debug run. You get a "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. The document is not loaded." if...
