Access 2002 Changes to Basic Access 2000 Features

Basic features involve the user interface (UI) for viewing and designing Access objects, and the Access (Jet) file system. Most existing Access applications use Jet databases to store traditional Access objects—forms, reports, macros, and modules—and data, and probably will continue to use Jet, despite Microsoft’s promotion of the SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE) as the preferred back end for Access applications. Access data projects and data access pages, introduced in Access 2000 with MSDE 1.0, have their own storage systems and don’t use Jet .mdb files for object storage. SQL Server is the data source for ADP; DAP can connect to SQL Server or Jet data sources.


→ To learn more about ADP and DAP, see “Access Data Projects and SQL Server 2000,” p. 34 and “Data Access Pages Revisited,” p. 40.
