Subject: [thelist] MS Access References

: I have used Access for several years. Although I have
: looked mightily, I have never been abel to find a complete
: list of module references. That is, when you are writing code,
: what reference do you need to perform which functions and
: operations.
: For example, when would you need to add the MS ActiveX
: Data Objects 2.0 Library?
: And, more importantly, when you are trying to do something
: which needs one of these, how do you find out which
: reference to make?

If you want to use ADO objects, then you need to add a reference to MS
ActiveX Data Objects <version>

ADO isn't intrinsice to MS Access though. ADO is a separate data access
technology that is bundled as part of MDAC (Microsoft Data Access
Components). That's why you need references. It'd be the same if you wanted
to (re)use part of, say, Adobe Acrobat inside Access.

If you get (either download, or install as part of MSDN etc) the Microsoft
Platform SDK, you can get an idea of all the different things are that are
bundled with Microsoft Windows
