New Features in DAO

As mentioned earlier, Microsoft has introduced several new features in DAO for Access 2007. These features are multi-value lookup fields, attachment fields, append-only memo fields, and database encryption. Each of these features is only available in the ACCDB file format so as not to break backward compatibility with the MDB file format.

All of these features, with the exception of database encryption, have been available on Windows SharePoint Services, and were added to Access for feature parity with that platform. (You can find out more about SharePoint in Chapter 17.)
