Ms Access Query Question
Posted on 2014-01-14
I have a home business that I run by myself and use Microsoft Access to manage my customers, inventory, shipments, vendors etc. The database is constantly evolving with my business and has accumulated many tables, forms, reports, etc. over the past 15 years. To better manage my database I created a query with the following SQL.
SELECT * FROM MSysObjects WHERE Flags=0
This query gives me a list of all the objects so I can review them. I would like to add one additional field called the Description field so that I can make notes to remind me what each of these objects does. I think that I need to add a separate table with the description field and perhaps one other field used to link the two tables together. What is the best way to link the tables and create a safeguard so that I cannot accidentally modify any of the data in the system's table but still be able to update the description field in my description table. (I'm aware that I can view the properties of objects and add comments but a table view will make it much easier). I'm using Access 2010.
