In addition to the various Access objects detailed in this appendix, you can use objects from other applications such as Excel, Word, Outlook, and non-Microsoft programs such as AutoCad and Peachtree Accounting to program in Access. To use these other object models, set a reference to their type libraries. The References collection contains a reference for every external type library you add to the References dialog box within your code.
The properties of the Reference object are described in the following table.
|BuiltIn||Boolean||Specifies whether a reference points to a default Reference necessary for Access to function properly.|
|Collection||References object||Returns a reference to the collection that contains an object.|
|FullPath||String||Specifies the path and filename of the referenced type library.|
|Guid||String||Returns a GUID that identifies the type library in the Registry.|
|IsBroken||Boolean||Specifies whether a Reference object points to a valid reference in the Registry.|
|Kind||Vbext_RefKind Enum||Specifies the type of reference that a Reference object represents.|
|Major||Long||Specifies the major version number of an application you're referencing.|
|Minor||Long||Specifies the minor version of the application you're referencing.|
|Name||String||The name of the Reference object.|
