Finalizing the Addin

After getting your functions, forms, and other objects to work correctly, the final step is to enter identifying information into specific properties of the library databases properties sheet, to give users information about the add-in when it is listed in the Add-In Manager dialog. The information about an add-in that appears in the Add-In Manager dialog comes from the Summary page of the add-in database's properties sheet. To open the properties sheet for the add-in, select File, Manage, Database Properties, as shown in Figure 14.8.

Once opened, the properties sheet looks like the one in Access 2003 (shown in Figure 14.9). The text you enter in the library database's properties sheet is used as follows:

■ The Title fields value is displayed as the add-in's name in the list of available add-ins.

■ The value of the Company field (not the Author field, as you might expect) appears as the add-in author's name under the list of available add-ins.

■ The Comments fields value appears as the add-in's description at the bottom of the Add-In Manager dialog.
