[MS_AccessPros] Re: Advice on object management


Hi Jim

Creating a table that is used "later on" is asking for trouble. Unless you check for the table's existence before using it and verify its data you could run into some timing issues.

I only use temp tables in rare occasions. Mostly for complex reports that would otherwise take forever to load. It sounds like you don't really need the ones you described. A saved query should be good enough and you will be certain to have the current data.

Hello all,

I am looking at a new database that I inherited and I am exploring options to reduce the overhead.

There is a macro that runs every time that the form closes. This is a waste. I moved it to a button. But what I discovered is that the macro behind the button has some objects that I may be able to remove and create and use in other ways.

For example, there is a query that creates a table named LU_Name which is being used a source for a combo box. then later in the macro the LU_Name table is being used in a query.

For my question;

I can use a select statement for the combo box to get the needed data for the combo boxes and use the main table that created the LU_Name to be used in the query later on.

What do the pros suggest is the most efficient in this case? The macro makes about 6 tables and appends some of them with other queries.

Do developers avoid creating objects, or are they a necessary evil?

Thank You

Jim Wagner
