The DirtyObject method is useful when you are modifying a form or report in a Web database programmatically. When you do this, Microsoft Access does not automatically detect that the form or report has changed, which may cause you to lose the changes when you save and close the object. If you use the DirtyObject method to specify that the form or report has been changed, then the changes will be saved when you save the form or report.

A run-time error will occur if the form or report specified by the ObjectName argument is not open.
