    Wait for Post Processing (Access 2010)

    Does anyone know what the Wait for Post Processing property does in Access 2010 forms? It doesn't appear in the list of properties in Offline Help and I can't find it in Office.com Help or even get a sensible link on Google.

    Am I the only person who hankers for the days when tapping F1 gave useful, context-sensitive help in Access programs?

    And I miss the banging-my-head-against-a-brick-wall emoticon that so clearly embodied my mental state by the time I resort to posting a question that probably has a really simple answer.

    Thanks and regards

    This is related to data macros that are new in Access 2010.

    Wait for Post Processing property:
    The default setting is No
    Choosing Yes tells Access to wait for the data macro to finish processing before return control back to the user.

    Boyd,

    Thanks for that info. With it I found this MSDN article may be of use to the Access crowd.
