This book got me over my "blind spot" where Access was concerned. It is very carefully and very thoroughly structured. It comes with a CD of ready made databases and exercises which use them.
You will need separate books to generate online interactive databases, and to get to grips with VBA coding, but FIRST, before attempting to run, let this book walk you through the basics.
For Access Beginners, an excellent, patient, careful teacher. Buy it.

What an easy to follow book.
This book really shows how easy Microsoft Access 2003 can be to use. It doesn't go into great detail about some of the more complex aspects of Access, but then it's not meant too. What it does do is give you a solid, well structured introduction to this brilliant piece of software and leaves you feeling confident about using Access in the future. This won't be the last Step by Step book I purchase.

If you're looking for a book to get you started with access then this is it.
Before I picked up this book I had no real knowledge of how to do anything with access and couldn't get my head around it. This helped no end and continues to do so, even now when i'm earning a living with access. Whilst it misses some key areas out in any reasonable detail. You really should get this and learn it as step 1. There are many steps still to take however this will get you going.
