Sample text

You can now shelve those fears; Viewing Object Dependencies has come to the rescue. Viewing object dependencies allows you to view what the object depends on as well as what objects depend on it. For example, by selecting a query, you could see what forms and reports are using it and you could also see if it was relying on a form or other queries.

So I created many queries with the name Query1, Query2, Macro1, Macro2, and so on. While the queries and macros I created worked just fine, when I then had to update those databases years later, I couldn’t remember what Figure 2-3 31 Chapter 2 each individual query and macro did. I had to go through each query and macro one-by-one and rename them according to their purpose before I could update the database. Don’t make the same mistakes I did when I started Access development. Now that you’ve opened up a blank macro, click the first line of the Action column to display the Actions drop-down menu shown in Figure 2-4.

If not, the code runs; if so, the code does not run or displays a graceful error message. In some circumstances, running your macro could even crash the entire Access application. ❑ Speed: A one-action macro will probably execute faster than the equivalent VBA code. However, running a complex macro with 10 or 12 actions usually takes significantly longer than the equivalent code. VBA code within Access is fast. If you’re designing an end-user application, you definitely need to be concerned with speed.
