Problems With Echo

P: n/a
I'm opening a series of 3 reports one at a time and using code to save
each one as a snapshot. I've set Echo to false at the start of the
code to try to prevent the screen updating during the process.

Report 1 is opened, saved as a snapshot and then closed. Report 2 is
opened ....etc. The problem is that Echo only seems to stay false for
the first report. The subsequent 2 reports flash on the screen as they
are opened and saved. What am I missing here?

Any help is appreciated.

Is there any code in the first or second report that reenables Echo? What
happens if you turn Echo off again before opening the second report?

Thanks for the reply Wayne. Each report contains 2 charts which are
requeried as the the report opens. (This is to work around the known
bug in MS Graph which stops the charts from displaying data
occasionally.) I've tried turning Echo off again after the first and
second chart close but to no avail - the second and third charts still
flash on the screen.

Found the fix! Not sure why it works but if I turn Echo on then off
again between opening each report the reports stay hidden when they
open. Not sure why just turning it off between each report opening
wouldn't work.

Glad you found it. By turning on then off, you're resetting something, but I
don't know what.

PS,

Which version of Access are you using and do you have all of the latest
patches installed?

In that case, if you don't mind, I would still like to see a copy of your
file to see if I can reproduce this. If there is anything sensitive (data or
coding) in the file, please remove it first. The file will need to be zipped
to get by the email security. If you're willing, please send it to
co*****@hotmail.com. Thanks.
