When you're done using a table or query, you should close it. In this video, learn how to close a recordset.
- [Instructor] When you're done working with the table…in your VBA code, you should close it…to release the system resources that your computer uses…to keep it in working memory.…In this movie, I'll show you the code to do that.…I am working in the course database,…but I need to get into the Visual Basic editor,…so I'll press Alt + F11.…From here, I want to insert a new code module,…so I'll click insert, and module.…And, here I have a blank code module.…
I'll start by creating a subroutine…that will display the number of records…in the products table, which I will open as a record set.…So, I'll do Sub ShowCount,…I won't pass any arguments, so I'll just type…a left and right parentheses, then enter a couple of times.…The Visual Basic editor adds the End Sub line automatically,…and now I have some room to work.…I'll start by creating a variable for my record set,…so Dim myR As Recordset.…
Next, I will set the products table to that record set.…So I'll type Set, which I need to use for object variables,…myR equals CurrentDb.OpenRecordset…
