Chapter 8. Writing Your Own Visual Basic... > The Access Immediate Window

The Access Immediate Window

One of the easiest and most useful tools that you encounter in your quest to learn Access is the immediate window, which is a command-line window and debugging window rolled into one. It is a command-line window because commands and procedures can be typed directly as a single line into the window and they will run after you press Enter. It is a debugging window because debugging statements nested in your code will display there. You can also run your procedures from there to test them. Whether you want to test a variable, an expression, or an entire procedure, the immediate window can handle it. After you use it and become familiar with it, it becomes almost indispensable.
