One of the reasons for using the term Access VBA in this book is that Access defines its own set of objects and uses specialized VBA syntax to refer to many Access objects. Although Form objects are common to most Office 97 members as well as Visual Basic, a subform (a form embedded in a form) is unique to Access. You find Report objects and subreports only in Access. The syntax for referring to a subform or subreport and for referring to controls contained in a subform or subreport is unique to Access. Even if you're an experienced Visual Basic programmer, you must become acquainted with the new syntax to write VBA code and refer to objects that are unique to Access.
