5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book - a must for anyone wanting to expand their access knowledge
This book should be on every access user's bookshelf. I agree in part with the reviewer who said its not for the beginner.

This book should be bought after you've read microsoft press step by step book. The two case studies at the end of the book are first rate - far better than i've seen in any other (and i have alot of access and dbms books) the exercises...

2.0 out of 5 stars Broad overlook of vba but does not go into detail
i found when reading this book gives a general idea of vba but doesn't go into the depth that i thought it would. One very fustrating thing that happens throughout the book is that the author give your website refrences to learn more about the subject.
The book also starts of "If there are any mistakes please post on the website" this is very discouraging and there...

This book should be bought after you've read microsoft press step by step book. The two case studies at the end of the book are first rate - far better than i've seen in any other (and i have alot of access and dbms books) the exercises develop you steadily and carefully till the end.

I keep going back to it, years after I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good specific intro to VBA, 3 May 2007
By 
Alec Wood (Hartlepool, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Beginning Access 2003 VBA (Programmer to Programmer) (Paperback)
It's what the book is, a book elaborating what is often the last chapter of most of the beginners Access books. It tells you about VBA, not in any great detail, but enough to get you going.

Unfortunately it fails to sufficiently explain classes etc and makes no effort to explain the planning of the elements required for a class.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners, 19 April 2006
This review is from: Beginning Access 2003 VBA (Programmer to Programmer) (Paperback)
This is just another book about Access that describes itself as being for beginners. Like all of the rest I have seen it totally fails.

The first few pages were quite promising and I thought this was a book I would be comfortable with. However I should have known from the introduction that things may go wrong when the author questioned whether to discuss DAO or ADO. What do these terms mean to a Beginner?

Chapter 2 was the next crunch when the subject of declaring arrays was thrown into the arena. Code was provided without any explaination whatsoever. Fortunateley I had another book that contained a section which gave an explaination of the subject.

I have yet to find a book on this subject in which the author can explain the terminology before launching into it.
