I was hoping someone could explain Object Model vs Data Model to me on a simple level. Here is a situation we are in. I have an Access database that is linked to another program (ODBC connection) so that I can add/edit/delete data in the other program. I was told the way I am doing this is the data model and that I should be connecting via an object model (sorry if I am using the terms wrong).
From what little research I did it looks as if the object model just does more data validation than the data model (and that the object model deals with business logic). Could I actually be interacting with this other program like an object model because on my forms I include all the code that handles the business logic.
Once again I am sorry if I sound like an idiot by using the terms wrong but I be just a simple Access programmer.
