Understanding Objects, Properties, Events, and Methods

Many people, especially those accustomed to a procedural language, don't understand the concept of objects, properties, methods, and events. As mentioned earlier, you need a thorough knowledge of Access's objects, their properties, the methods associated with them, and the events that each object can respond to if you want to be a productive and successful Access programmer.

What Exactly Are Objects?

Objects are all the things that make up your database. They include tables, queries, forms, reports, data access pages, macros, and modules, as well as the components of those objects. For example, a Table object contains Field and Index objects. A Form object contains various controls (text boxes, combo boxes, list boxes, and so on). Each object in the database has specific properties that determine its appearance or behavior. Each object also has specific methods, which are actions that can be taken upon it.
