Product Description

From the Publisher

Access 2007: The Missing Manual was written from the ground up
for this redesigned application. You will learn how to design complete
databases, maintain them, search for valuable nuggets of information, and
build attractive forms for quick-and-easy data entry. You'll even delve
into the black art of Access programming (including macros and Visual
Basic), and pick up valuable tricks and techniques to automate common tasks
-- even if you've never touched a line of code before. You will also learn
all about the new prebuilt databases you can customize to fit your needs,
and how the new complex data feature will simplify your life. With plenty
of downloadable examples, this objective and witty book will turn an Access
neophyte into a true master.

I started with the "Starters" edition, well where would you start? And now, I want to delve deeper.
Unfortunately, having followed the "Starters" edition I now found that having bought the "Access 2007, The Missing Manual" I am now covering subjects that have been covered in the "Starters" edition, not to the same extent admittedly, but it does mean I am going over a lot of ground that the "Starters" edition covers.
Decide how deeply you want to delve and then decide. For a general knowledge take the "Starters" edition but if you are deeply interested then take Access 2007, The Missing Manual.
But not both!

This is definitely a beginners book, but as a beginner I found it very easy to follow, excellent tutorials and a great reference. So many books seem to be geared for a bit more knowledge and those of us who have to start at the beginning can get lost - I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who needs help building building databases and with greater functionality than just a table of records.

This book is easy to read and follow and indeed it would be a good manual with the product. But it really is for beginners. If you have used Access before give this book a miss.

I got Access 2007: The Missing Manual mainly because I wanted to know how to create forms using Access. I had enough familiarity with the Access and Excel to create basic databases but I remember creating forms using the older version of Access to be quite difficult, probably made more difficult by the fact that I had inherited the forms and was trying to fix them.

Access 2007: The Missing Manual starts the reader off with the very basics of creating simple databases. Then, gradually teaches the reader how to connect, filter, query, create forms, and print reports. Throughout, there are step by step instructions, illustrations, and tips. At first, Access seems pretty daunting but I found that by the time I got through the book, I was pretty confident taking what I learned and adapting it to my own needs.

As a beginner with databases I sought a book which would take me through the whole process from database concept, design and implementation, including the report building functions.

I wished to build what will be a relatively complex relational database and it is fair to say that this book has contributed to achieving a firm foundation for this task. It is well written and one's hand is held firmly towards an understanding of the subject.

The author's assessment of Access is honest and straightforward. His examples are humorous yet realistic. The designers chose a typeface that is visible, and yet the book is not so heavy that you can't read it in bed once you have turned off the computer.

This book would get 5 stars from me if the author did not have the frustrating habit of condensing "is" to " 's" in just about every other sentence. Otherwise, it was very easy to read.
