Responding to Events

One of the key concepts that Access developers need to understand is that Access is an event-driven programming environment. That means that VBA code doesn’t just arbitrarily run when it wants to. Rather, code runs in response to events: users clicking buttons, new records being loaded into forms, and so on.

You might have already dug into Access events, depending on how much you did with macro programming in the past. But these topics are so central that this chapter reviews the basics. In particular, you need to understand that events happen in a specific order, and that each one has a specific purpose.
