You’ll find detailed lists of objects for both DAO and ADO as well as the Access object model and Windows Registry. The appendixes on naming conventions and reserved words provide invaluable information that not only can strengthen your programming style but can save you from using terms or characters that can cause hours of needless pain and frustration in debugging and correcting.
Creating Tables Tables are the backbone of any database. Because they store all of the data, designing them correctly the first time is crucial. The type of data you need to store in any given table is dictated by its purpose in the application.

You could use a Text field type to store a date and there may be cases where that makes sense, but most of the time, the Date/Time type will be more beneficial because it enables you to leverage the comparison operations provided by the ACE database engine, which you could not do with the Text field type.
