Programmatically Determining Dependencies

Access objects can depend on other objects. For example, a form might use a query as its data source, and the query in turn might draw its information from two or more tables. In this case, the form is directly dependent on the query, and indirectly dependent on the tables. Starting with Access 2003, this information is available through the Access user interface, and also programmatically.

If you haven’t looked at this information in the Access user interface, it’s easy enough to find. Right-click on any object in the Database window and select Object Dependencies. Doing so opens the Object Dependencies task pane, as shown in Figure 15.5. You can switch between displaying the objects that depend on this object, and the object that this object depends on, by using the radio buttons at the top of the task pane.
