Modifying Object Dependencies

As you view dependencies for an object in the Object Dependencies task pane and determine you can make changes without effecting other objects, you can open an object in Design view directly from the Object Dependencies task pane and modify it. If you need to look at other objects, you can open more than one from the Object Dependencies task pane. If you are having problems viewing dependency information, you need to turn on the Track Name AutoCorrect Info option on the Current Database pane in Access Options.

Modify Dependency Information

  • yellow_1.jpg In the Navigation pane, click the database object in which you want to view and modify dependencies.
  • yellow_2.jpg Click the Database Tools tab.
  • yellow_3.jpg Click the Object Dependencies button.
  • yellow_4.jpg Click the Objects that depend on me or Objects that I depend on option.

    The Object Dependencies task pane shows the list of objects that use the selected object.

  • yellow_5.jpg Click the Expand icon (white arrow) next to an object to view dependency information. Click the Collapse icon (black arrow) to hide the dependency information.
