|(Declarations)||Declarations||Declarations and private variables for the modMSysObjectsInfo module.|
|AccessObjectsToArray||Procedure||Builds a zero based array containing a dictionary (list) of all Access objects using the MSysObjects table. The array includes the object type and the object name.|
|AccessObjectsToTable||Procedure||Builds a dictionary of Access objects to a table. If the table exists, it is emptied. If the table does not already exist, it is created. The created table has the following structure: FIELD NAME FIELD TYPE ObjectType Text(10) ObjectName Text(64).|
|GetAccessID||Procedure||Get the internal Access ID number for an object. Access maintains a unique long integer id number for every object in the database. This function returns that value.|
|GetAccessIDInfo||Procedure||Get the name of the object associated by the internal Access ID number. Access maintains a unique long integer id number for every object in the database. This function returns the object with the specified value.|
' Example of modObjectInfo ' ' To try this example, do the following: ' 1. Create a new form in your copy of Sample.mdb (in the Total Visual SourceBook sample directory). ' 2. Create a command button 'cmdTest' ' 3. Paste this code into the form's module Private Const cstrTable As String = "Categories" Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer) cmdTest.Caption = "Test Access object information functions" End Sub Private Sub cmdTest_Click() Dim astrNames() As String Dim intCounter As Integer Dim lngAccessID As Long Dim strName As String ' Example of AccessObjectsToArray AccessObjectsToArray CurrentDb, astrNames For intCounter = LBound(astrNames) To UBound(astrNames) Debug.Print "Object: " & astrNames(intCounter) Next intCounter ' Example of AccessObjectsToTable AccessObjectsToTable CurrentDb, "FMS Object Dictionary" ' Example of GetAccessID lngAccessID = GetAccessID(CurrentDb, cstrTable, acTable) Debug.Print "Object ID: " & lngAccessID strName = GetAccessIDInfo(CurrentDb, lngAccessID) Debug.Print "Name for Object ID " & lngAccessID & " is " & strName End Sub
