A Microsoft Access database or project typically contains tables, queries, forms that are used to view, input and modify data, macros, different reports and various other objects. You can test these applications in the same manner as you would test any other Windows application: you can simulate user actions, such as mouse clicks, keyboard input, and so on. See Simulating User Actions and Working With Standard Windows Controls for details. You could also record or create low-level test procedures and make use of other testing features supported by TestComplete (see Project Items).
To obtain access to elements of a Microsoft Access form and to the element’s properties and methods, you should use the TestComplete MSAA engine and work with Access via its COM server. For more information on testing applications that support Active Accessibility, see Using Microsoft Active Accessibility. To learn how to test COM servers, see Working With COM Objects.
