File View: Listobject
An Access database is made up of objects, including tables, queries, forms, data access pages, macros, modules, sections, and controls. Basically, an object is something that has a name that you can use in a Visual Basic program. We primarily talk about the top level of objects as the items listed in the Database Window.

object frame
A control on a form or report which contains an OLE object.

OLE object
OLE = Object Linking and Embedding. An OLE object can be any external object or document, such as an image, a Word document, or an Excel spreadsheet. The program that created the object must support object linking/embedding. The program controls the display of the object and is required to edit the object, so the program must be installed on the same computer as the database.
