Chapter 1. Access As a Development Tool > Getting to Know the Database Objects

Getting to Know the Database Objects

As mentioned previously, tables, queries, forms, reports, data access pages, macros, and modules combine to comprise an Access database. Each of these objects has a special function. An Access application also includes several miscellaneous objects, including relationships, command bars, database properties, and import/export specifications. With these objects, you can create a powerful, user-friendly, integrated application. Figure 1.1 shows the Access Database window.
