Addin Types

There are three types of Access add-ins, with several subtypes, as listed in Table 14.1.

All these types of add-ins are stored as wizards in the Registry. Sometimes you will see a Builder or Menu add-in referred to as a wizard, but I will reserve the term wizard for the add-ins that are invoked when a new object is created, as listed in the Wizard column of Table 14.1.
