Writing Code in Modules

A module is a container for code. You can store various subs, functions, and declarations in a module. To view all modules currently available in your Access database, click the Modules group of the Access navigation pane. To view a module, double-click it to open the Visual Basic Editor (see Figure 2-1).

Chapter 4 explores the various components of the VBA Editor in detail, but you'll notice that by default, the VBA Editor contains a Project Explorer, a Properties dialog box, and the main code editor. If you have various modules available in your project, they are listed in the Project Explorer in the upper-left pane. The Properties pane (lower-right) displays the properties for the currently selected object (either the module itself, or a control or form within the module).
