Defining Builders, Wizards, and Menu Add-Ins

Add-ins are tools that extend the functionality of Access. They enhance the Access environment by making difficult tasks easier, automating repetitive tasks, and adding enhanced functionality. You can design add-ins for yourself or for others in your organization to use. You even might want to distribute add-ins as part of your application so that your users can build their own database objects. If you are really ambitious, you might decide to build an add-in for sale in the Access third-party market.

Microsoft Access supports three types of add-ins: builders, wizards, and menu add-ins. Each has its own advantages and uses. When you begin the process of designing an add-in, you must decide whether it will be a builder, wizard, or menu add-in. This decision affects how you design the add-in as well as how you install it. This chapter defines and shows you how to design and install each type of add-in.
