Object data type

A fundamental data type representing any object that can be recognized by Visual Basic. The Object data type is generic; you can declare any object variable as type Object. For better performance, however, you should declare object variables according to their specific type. For example, use a variable of type Form to represent a form rather than a variable of type Object.

There are three categories of the Object data type: Microsoft Access object types, ADO object types, and DAO object types.
