Deeper into Objects

There comes a point in every Access programmer’s life when you realize you’ve learned enough about the VB language to get by. From that point on, you spend most of your time learning about different objects, which is a much larger task.

Access has several dozen built-in objects which, taken together, make up what programmers call an object model. Along with the control and form objects you know so well, it has objects representing queries, projects, reports, smart tags, printers, and much more. You can’t cover all these objects in a single chapter. Even if you could, you’d find that many of them just don’t interest you. However, you need to know enough so that you can hunt down the features you need when you’re tackling a particularly sticky VB challenge.
