3.0 out of 5 stars OK, not terrific, 28 May 2006
This review is from: Access Cookbook: Solutions to Common User Interface & Programming Problems (Paperback)
I know that the 'Cookbook' series from O'Reilly tends to be heavy on bells and whistles and light on explanations, and the Access Cookbook is no different.

It makes Access dance in interesting ways, for sure...but despite having many unique problems to solve using Access, I found that the book simply didn't show me much of anything revolutionary. I did find that modifying some of the code allowed me to take shortcuts, but my problem with the examples is that they were not explained adequately, making them more difficult to adapt for the beginning/intermediate programmer than they would have been if more effort had been put into explaining what was going on.

Having said that, there are far worse Access books on the market than this one...and I found that the edition I use works on every version of Access that we have in the building, even Access 97, which is pretty impressive.
