Access 97 is the database of choice for the home and small business user. While its intuitive interface makes data storage and manipulation incredibly simple, you really need its underlying language, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), to make the most use of its features. VBA is the language that unites the whole Office 97 suite, allowing users to exploit the power of each Office application within their environment of choice. VBA allows you to automate and secure your database, so your end-users need never know what goes on underneath. Its simple style allows even complete novices to programming to achieve impressive results with very little effort. This book provides comprehensive coverage of this subject.
