Summary

Although Access can be an excellent player in the client/server arena, it does not always offer as much scalability as your environment requires. Using unbound forms and the n-tier model, you can scale your Access applications to largescale enterprise models. Furthermore, moving your business logic to middle-tier components allows you to maximize the reuse of your business logic. This makes your application more easily maintainable and reduces development costs.

This chapter showed you how to build both logical and physical three-tier applications. You learned how to move your business logic and data access code to class modules within an Access application (a logical three-tier model) and then how to move the class modules to a separate Visual Basic DLL (a physical three-tier model).
