Chapter 21. Using ActiveX Controls > Why This Chapter Is Important

Why This Chapter Is Important

A powerful aspect of Access 2003 is its extensibility. In addition to the controls available as part of the product, you can incorporate ActiveX controls on your forms.

Several years ago, Microsoft renamed OLE controls to ActiveX controls. You will still sometimes see these terms used interchangeably. In this book, I refer to them as ActiveX controls.
