In this chapter, we took a detailed peek into the world of DAO. By now you should have a fairly good understanding of when to use DAO, and how to refer to its objects. You should have a good working knowledge of the main objects in the hierarchy, such as the DBEngine, Workspace, Error, Database, and Recordset objects, and their associated collections. Although very few people can remember every single property and method of every object, you should have gained enough exposure to them by now, to be able to start writing some reasonably sophisticated software. In any case, Intellisense can help you out when you're unsure.

Now that you've mastered DAO, the next chapter seeks to undermine your confidence by introducing a whole new object model—ActiveX Data Objects.
