Topic outline:

This month’s session will be led by Ramachandran (APR) Pillai who will be doing a deep dive into the use of class modules to streamline module code.

Over the past few months, Ramachandran has published a series of 15 articles on Reusing Form and Report Module VBA Code for New Projects.
He will cover much of this material in his presentation for Access Europe
During the course of this session, you will learn how to make effective use of class modules to streamline form and report event code.

You may find it helpful to study some of the articles in this series beforehand starting with Streamlining Form Module Event Procedures - Part One

Due to technical issues, our presenter lost internet connection about half way through the session.
We re-recorded the second half a few days later and included questions & answers both from the session chat and later discussion.
The final result is as close as possible to what was originally intended by our presenter.
