Field.Value Property (DAO)
Sets or returns the value of an object. Read/write Variant.
The setting or return value is a Variant data type that evaluates to a value appropriate for the data type, as specified by the Type property of an object.
Generally, the Value property is used to retrieve and alter data in Recordset objects.
The Value property is the default property of the Field, Parameter, and Property objects. Therefore, you can set or return the value of one of these objects by referring to them directly instead of specifying the Value property.
Trying to set or return the Value property in an inappropriate context (for example, the Value property of a Field object in the Fields collection of a TableDef object) will cause a trappable error.
When reading decimal values from a Microsoft SQL Server database, they will be formatted using scientific notation through a Microsoft Access workspace, but will appear as normal decimal values through an ODBCDirect workspace.
