Main Presentation: Class Modules

Presenter: Alison Balter

Access offers two kinds of modules: standard modules and class modules. A class module is a great way to encapsulate related functions into a portable, self-contained object. Most developers donít make use of what class modules have to offer. In this session you will learn why class modules are important. Youíll see how easy it is to create custom objects, properties, methods, and events. Youíll leave the session with several practical examples of how you can benefit from class modules.
