References are libraries of functions, subs, constants etc that are not by default included in your vba environment.

You can add them from the vba editor

Tools--> references

As an example, in Access's vba editor, you do not by default have Excel vba functions available for use in your code.

If you check the Excel reference, excel functions, constants etc are then available.

By the way, you are specifically mentioning Excel,  but you have Access included in your question topics.   You might want to describe your setup an goals a little to help people tailor their responses to your needs.

A little more...  those object libraries (references)  basically allow you to automate various  things from the environment you are working in... for example an Excel reference in an Access database lets you progrmatically open Excel and do just about anything that you can do directly in Excel. ... which is far mor powerful than default available functions such as TransferSpreadsheet.
