Shared Library Procedures in Microsoft Access

Do you have certain functions or subroutines that you use in lots of different databases? And every time you change one of them or make a modification or an enhancement, you have to go and then change it in 10 different database files? Well, in today's video, I'm going to teach you how to create a shared Library database where you can use the modules from it in any of your other Microsoft Access databases.

Mason from Hoffman Estates, Illinois (a Platinum Member) asks: I've got a function that I use in all of my different databases that I wrote myself called FormatMyDate. Some of the reporting my company uses requires a specific date-time format, and that's what this function does. However, they change the format once in a while, and I have to go through and modify it in 15 different database files. Is there any way I can use this one shared function in all of my databases so I don't have to keep updating it everywhere?


Members will learn how to set up a shared library file with an encrypted ACCDE file. There are a few more steps involved, but if you're working with a multi-user networked Access solution, this is what you'll have to do to set up a shared library.
