definition of unsupported objects

In Object Dependencies I have a few 'Unsupported Objects' (queries)
what does this mean?
can I assume they are not used anywhere?
and why, if I get the 'objects that depend on me' for qryA, why is qryA listed in unsupported objects? while it is the datasource for a form

thank you

Unsupported objects are ones that the dependency viewer cannot "understand" well enough to provide an answer. I believe union queries fall in that category, and a few others. Basically you would need to check these manually (or maybe you allready know that they are used for something else).

just a thought, are all of the tables or queries used in qryA valid?

is the intention of 'Unsupported Objects'  to list those are not used/referenced anywhere? or something else?

Is qryA actually set as the Recordsource of your form, or do you assign it with VBA?

I'm not sure. I don't use the Dependency stuff in Access, so I can't really say.

I'd assume, however, that it does NOT mean they are not used or referenced. After all, if your query is used as a Recordsource of a Form, it's obviously used in that location.

If I had to guess, I'd think that it means there are no objects which provide "support" for it - in other words, it's created from base table, with no queries or such involved. But that's purely a guess ...
