Beep Macro Action

You can use the Beep action to sound a beep tone through the computer's speaker.

Note: The Beep macro action is not available in Access web apps.


The Beep action doesn't have any arguments.


You can use the Beep action to signal the following occurrences:

  • Important screen changes have occurred.

  • The wrong kind of data has been entered in a control. For example, the user has entered numeric data in a text box control.

  • A macro has reached a specified point or has completed its actions.

The frequency and duration of the beep depend on the hardware, which may vary between computers.

To run the Beep action in a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) module, use the Beep method of the DoCmd object.
