This is a text description of Figure 2-1, "Microsoft Access Architecture". It illustrates the database native format (.mdb or .accdb) file and the architectural elements related to it, as explained in text after the illustration.

The illustration contains five boxes. The two rows of boxes are labeled Forms, Reports, and Basic in the top row; and Jet DBMS Engine in the row under that. The bottom box is labeled .mdb or .accdb file. An arrow with arrowheads on both ends goes between the .mdb or .accdb file box and the set of boxes above it.
