DeleteObject Method [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003

The DeleteObject method carries out the DeleteObject action in Visual Basic.

expression.DeleteObject(ObjectType, ObjectName)

expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

AcObjectType can be one of these AcObjectType constants.
acDataAccessPage
acDefault default
acDiagram
acForm
acFunction
acMacro
acModule
acQuery
acReport
acServerView
acStoredProcedure
acTable

ObjectName  Optional Variant. A string expression that's the valid name of an object of the type selected by the objecttype argument. If you run Visual Basic code containing the DeleteObject method in a library database, Microsoft Access looks for the object with this name first in the library database, then in the current database.

Remarks

For more information on how the action and its arguments work, see the action topic.

If you leave the objecttype and objectname arguments blank (the default constant, acDefault, is assumed for objecttype), Microsoft Access deletes the object selected in the Database window. To select an object in the Database window, you can use the SelectObject action or SelectObject method with the In Database Window argument set to Yes (True).

Example

The following example deletes the specified table:

DoCmd.DeleteObject acTable, "Former Employees Table"
