Programming The Access Object Models Using VBA and VBScript
Sebastopol, CA-Each iteration of Windows has improved the techniques
used for transferring data among its applications. The leading
technique is called Automation, which allows you to work directly with
objects in an application's interface using their object models. But if
you want to write code in a programming language, such as Visual Basic,
in order to work with the apps that support Automation, you must
understand the inner workings of an application's object model-or in
the case of Microsoft's Access, it's two object models.
"When Access 2000 was released, the number of major objects in the
Access object model had increased from 6 to 21. And because of the
change in Help for Office 2000, it is now very difficult to get help on
DAO objects from Access, especially from code modules where you need it
most,"" says Helen Feddema, author of the just-released book, DAO
Object Model: The Definitive Reference (O'Reilly $34.95). "The DAO
Object Model is (and will be for some time) the primary tool for
working with data stored in Access databases."
In many respects, Microsoft has made Automation the centerpiece of its
vision for application development. An understanding of the object
models is essential for developers who work with data in Access tables,
or who want to manipulate components of the Access interface from other
Office apps. Feddema's new book details the two Access object models,
with code samples to use in VBA and/or VBScript. It will be *the*
reference guide VB developers will reach for when working with data in
Access tables or when manipulating components of the Access interface
from Access, Outlook, Word, and Excel.
DAO Object Model: The Definitive Reference includes a CD-ROM that
contains "Object Model Browser"-a powerful hierarchal object browser
that makes it easy to identify where an object fits in the object model
so that you can easily navigate to and from it. "Object Model Browser"
will also allow you to determine which of the object's properties and
methods return to an object of a particular type and which objects are
externally creatable. This indispensable reference, combined with this
invaluable browser will enormously enhance your productivity.
