Collections, Objects, Properties, and Methods

You’ve already dealt with two of the main collections supported by Microsoft Access—Forms and Reports. The Forms collection contains all the form objects that are open in your application, and the Reports collection contains all the open report objects.

As you’ll learn in more detail later in this section, collections, objects, properties, and methods are organized in several object model hierarchies. An object has properties that describe the object and methods that are actions you can ask the object to execute. For example, a Form object has a Name property (the name of the form) and a Requery method (to ask the form to requery its record source). Many objects also have collections that define sets of other objects within the object. For example, a Form object has a Controls collection that is the set of all control objects (text boxes, labels, and so on) defined on the form.
