It is shown that electromagnetic effects of a vector potential on a charged particle confined to a region R (multiply or simply connected) are completely determined by field strengths in R, if the potential obeys certain conditions. Such potentials are adequate in experiments purporting to show Aharonov-Bohm effect. Therefore these experiments have not established effects of inaccessible fields.
