Access 2007 introduces a new technique for creating and managing import and export specifications. If you worked with specifications in previous versions of Access, you'll be glad to know that you can create a specification for each of the supported file types for import and export! No longer are specifications limited to text files. With the addition of this new feature, Microsoft has added the ImportExportSpecification object and ImportExportSpecifications collection. Obviously, this collection contains ImportExportSpecification objects and consists of the standard collection members: Add, Item, Count.
The following table describes the properties of the ImportExportSpecification object.
|Application||Application object||Returns the current Application object for the specification.|
|Description||String||Specifies a friendly description for the specification.|
|Name||String||Specifies the name of the specification.|
|Parent||Object||the CurrentProject or CodeProject object for the specification.|
|XML||String||Specifies the XML representation of the specification.|
The ImportExportSpecification object's methods are described here:
|Delete||None||Deletes the current specification.|
|Execute||Prompt||Executes the import or export specification.|
