Understanding the Importance of Debugging

A good programmer is not necessarily one who can get things right the first time. To be fully effective as a VBA programmer, you need to master the art of debugging—the process of troubleshooting your application. Debugging involves locating and identifying problem areas in your code and is a mandatory step in the application-development process. Fortunately, the Access 97 environment provides excellent tools to help you with the debugging process. Using the Access 97 debugging tools, you can step through your code, setting watchpoints and breakpoints as needed.

Using the VBA debugging tools is significantly more efficient than taking random stabs at fixes to your application. A strong command of the Access 97 debugging tools can save you hours of trial and error. In fact, it can be the difference between a successfully completed application-development process and one that continues indefinitely with problems left unsolved.
