4.0 out of 5 stars Accessible and useful, 19 April 2003
This review is from: Access Cookbook (Paperback)
I was looking for more than just a programming guide – I wanted something which would show me how to make the most of MS Access. This is a really well written book, with some excellent examples of the sorts of practical things that you’ll want to be able to do once you get into programming Access.
Each recipe is broken down into Problem, Solution and Discussion. Further more, the accompanying CD contains all the code in the examples and then some. The “Problems” are always pertinent, and really are the sorts of things you want to be able to do. The solutions are elegant but never overly fancy or complex. Hey – you can actually understand the code! The discussions chat about how it all works, some point out other areas which the techniques might be useful in, or expand the solutions. The book is divided in sections such as Queries, Forms, Reports, Distributing Applications, Printing, Data etc with some of the later chapters looking at stuff like Data Access Pages (DAP), SQL Server Data and the Windows API.
Getz, Litwin and Baron never lose sight of the intended readership – people who want to improve their MS Access skills. They never talk down to their readers, and they don’t assume an unreasonable level of competence.
Thoroughly recommend this book for IT professionals, or people interested in home programming.
