    Change the "Beep"

    A97 SR2

    How can I change the sound generated by the Beep statement? It's great for error messages, but I would like a sound that's upbeat and cheerful.

    I'm not positive, but I think it's controlled in the Windows Control Panel (Sounds applet). It should be the Exclamation sound.

    You're right. It's the "Default Sound" in the control panel.

    I wonder if there is a sound object collection that one can reference to associate sounds to events?

    Here's a link to a code sample on the <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/access/index.html>Access Web</A> that explains how to play any WAV file in Access using an API call:

    Thanks Mark. That link is very helpful.

    Looks like I can realize a lifelong dream:
    Captain Piccard will command "Engage!" whenever the "Go" button is clicked.
