English Code that can be read by other languages

P: 93
Is there a Referrence setting in Access that code written in english will work in other languages. I have a DoCmd Open Form that ask for a parameter on a French computer however all other commands work perfectly even though all the Code was written in english. Any ideas?

See this link, paticularly page 11, which states (among other things) the following: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...ce/Wnetmui.doc

Make your Application Unicode One of the key considerations when developing multinational applications is to utilize Unicode. Unicode is an international standard capable of representing most of the languages in use in the world today. Applications coded to Unicode can easily display User Interface elements in any language. This frees you from reliance on codepages for language support. In order to be localizable, an application must be Unicode enabled.
Create a Resource DLL for Each Supported Language MUI-enabled applications use separate resource DLLs to store User Interface strings for different languages. This method may require additional effort at the outset, but it brings significant advantages in the long run. Not only does this method of coding allow User Interface switching, but it is easy to update with new languages without making changes to the core binary or other resource DLLs. This makes your application completely localizable.
