Drag & Drop Database Objects

Last updated: 23 June 2022

This explains two methods of using drag and drop with any Access database object.

2.   Transfer objects from one open database to another. Usually much easier than using the wizard to import objects. Extra care needed with linked tables
Both methods work with any Access object and have been available since Access 97 (25 years ago) BUT it seems that many experienced developers are not aware of one or both features.
