Appendix G. The Access Object Model

By now you've probably read at least a few of the chapters in this book and have realized that there are a lot of tasks you can accomplish by programming in VBA. One concept that should be abundantly clear is that to use VBA to manipulate Access, you need some knowledge about the Access object model. It was discussed brie?y in Chapter 4, but as a refresher, an object model is a set of objects and collections that programmers use to manipulate a program. Microsoft Access has a rich object model. You'll use that to manipulate forms, reports, queries, macros, and other components of the Access interface.

Much of the information in this appendix can also be found in some form within the Access Visual Basic Reference Help file.
