14.1. Objects

Before discussing the various components of the DAO model, we must discuss the concept of an object . In the parlance of object-orientation, an object is something that is identified by its properties and its methods (or actions).

As we will see (and as the name implies) DAO is full of objects. For example, each saved table in an Access database is an object, called a TableDef object. (Actually, it is the definition of the table, rather than its data, that is an object of type TableDef.) Some of the properties of TableDef objects are Name, RecordCount, DateCreated, and LastUpdated.
