Summary

Library databases enable you to create libraries of code, forms, reports, and other objects that will be shared by multiple databases. Library databases facilitate the application development process by enabling you to easily centralize the development of common code libraries. You also can use these databases to incorporate add-ins, wizards, and builders into your applications and development environment (covered in Chapter 28, “Managing Application Development with Visual SourceSafe”).

This chapter began by defining a library database. It then walked you through all the steps required to prepare a database to become a library database. You can use several methods to reference a library database. The chapter discussed each method, highlighting the pros and cons of each. After you reference a library database, the debugging process begins. This chapter highlighted how easy it is to debug an Access 97 library database. Finally, it provided you with practical examples of how you can use library databases in your applications.
