Part 8: Appendixes > Naming Conventions for Database Objects

Naming Conventions for Database Objects

In Level Two of LNC, tags are required for all Access (and Jet) database objects listed in Tables B.1 and B. 2. Level One also recommends that you place tags on every object name but recognizes that non-developers may prefer to save time, effort, and complexity by leaving tags off objects where the context is obvious while viewing the Database window. Thus, Level One users are required only to place the qry tag on queries to differentiate them from tables in any combined lists, such as the Choose the Table or Query... combo box in Form and Report wizards. Placing tags on the other objects listed is recommended, but optional.

Caution

It can be difficult to propagate name changes throughout a database, so if you are a casual user now but expect to become a developer later—and thus migrate from Level One of LNC to Level Two—you would be unwise to leave tags off any object names. Use the Level One tags now on all objects.
