How to Make a Beep or Play a Sound in Access


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to make Microsoft Access sound a beep. More importantly, I'll show you how to make a series of beeps, so whether you need 2, 3, 4, or more beeps, I've got you covered. We'll use a For/Next loop in VBA plus a little sleep timer for a delay.

David from Cedar Rapids, Iowa (a Platinum Member) asks: I have a very long report that I run every morning. It takes a good 5 to 10 minutes. When it's finished, I'd love for the database to make some kind of noise to let me know it's ready. I played around with the Beep function, and it works OK, but it's easy to miss one beep. If I try to get it to play like 10 times in a row, it still just sounds like one beep. Any ideas?

Members

Members will learn how to actually play a real WAV sound file in VBA, so the sky is the limit as far as the sounds you can hear from your databases. You can play Star Trek sounds... all... day... long... :)
