Using Class Modules in Microsoft Access

To build Microsoft Access applications with longevity in mind, consider using VBA Class Modules. Some of the benefits of Class Modules are:

  1. Makes your code well-organized
  2. Makes code easier to read and maintain
  3. Better organized code is easier to test and therefore more reliable
  4. It allows us to build an application one block at a time.
  5. It is much easier to test individual parts of an application.
  6. Updating code won’t cause problems in other parts of the application.
  7. It is easy to add objects between applications.

Class Modules require a little more thought and effort up-front but once you implement them, you will wonder how you lived without them in the past and you will thank yourself with each application modification you make.
