CurrentData Object [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Multiple objects

The CurrentData object refers to the objects stored in the current database by the source (server) application (Jet or SQL).

Using the CurrentData Object

The CurrentData object has several collections that contain specific AccessObject objects within the current database. The following table lists the name of each collection defined by the database and the types of objects it contains.

Collections Object type Available in Access database (.mdb) Available in Access Project (.adp)
AllTables All tables Yes Yes
AllFunctions All functions No Yes
AllQueries All queries Yes Yes
AllViews All views No Yes
AllStoredProcedures All stored procedures No Yes
AllDatabaseDiagrams All database diagrams No Yes

Note  The collections in the preceding table contain all of the respective objects in the database regardless if they are opened or closed.

For example, an AccessObject representing a table is a member of the AllTables collection, which is a collection of AccessObject objects within the current database. Within the AllTables collection, individual tables are indexed beginning with zero. You can refer to an individual AccessObject object in the AllTables collection either by referring to the table by name, or by referring to its index within the collection. If you want to refer to a specific item in the AllTables collection, it's better to refer to it by name because the item's index may change. If the object name includes a space, the name must be surrounded by brackets ([ ]).

Syntax Example
AllTables!tablename AllTables!OrderTable
AllTables![table name] AllTables![Order Table]
AllTables("tablename") AllTables("OrderTable")
AllTables(index) AllTables(5)
