Get and Post data from a text file Access 2007

P: 9
Greetings,

I have a Access 2007 App and I want to have a Config File. I have several unbound Text Boxes that are in small Date format that will be used as a Filter for several forms. I would like to:

On load get the dates from a config file (Text or other) and on Exit Save to config file.

Please help.

Thanks,

Brad

Brad,

Rather than creating a text file, I would recommend that you create an Access form that would be part of your application and contain the combo/listbox, etc. controls that would provide a flexible way to set startup configurations and startup preferences. The form could be left invisible and/or password protected if you don't want it accessible to the users. If you are interested in this approach, the following link will give you some idea of the power and flexability you can build into a form for setting system configurations / user preferences.

Hope this helps:

Brad,
And of course. the form discussed above would be bound to an underlying Access table.
