In this chapter, you got to know the Database window and the objects it contains. An Access database can contain many objects, and all these objects are stored in a single file. The Database window in Access lets you view and manipulate Access objects. You also learned the following:

  • Table objects hold your raw data.

  • Query objects provide answers to questions about the data.

  • Forms provide a data-entry and display interface.

  • Reports enable you to make attractive printed versions of your data.

  • Pages help you publish your data to the Web.

  • Macros and modules enable advanced programming operations in a database.

  • Groups in the Database window let you create subsets of your objects for easy reference.

  • Desktop shortcuts let you launch Access and open a particular object, such as a form or a report, directly from the Windows desktop.
