I know they are deprecated, but in the current version of Access I have (version 2104 Build 13929.20016) there is no such option.

If I go into any property sheet and click on the down arrow against a property, the only option I get is [Event Procedure]. I am certain there used to be a [Macro] one as well. See screen shot.

delete the [event procedure], then you will see the Macro option.

There is no event procedure. And it happens on every event. Here's a snapshot from an entirely new blank, unused form with no objects, code or anything else

Thanks. That was stupid of me. A while since I have ever needed to look at macros.

There is an option in Access Options/Object Designers/Forms/Reports to allways use event procedures.?

That is what I have mine set to.

Yet I still get to see any macroes.?
