Chapter 12. Creating a Database with Access > Working with Database Objects

Working with Database Objects

The Database window is the container for all the objects in a database, including tables, forms, reports, queries, pages, macros, and modules. These database objects work together to help you store and manage your data. Objects are organized by object type on the Objects bar. You can open, group, rename, and delete database objects from the Database window. You use the Open button in the Database window to view and enter object data and the Design button to create the layout for the object data.

Open and View a Database Object

If necessary, click the Objects bar in the Database window.

Click the object type icon on the Objects bar.

Click the object you want to open.

Click the Open button on the Database window toolbar to view the object's data, or click the Design button to work with the object's design.

To close the object, click the Close button in the upper-right corner.
