5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing code examples 19 April 2011
By John V. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is broken into 43 "tips," but it contains much much more than just 43 individual bits of code. Each of the eight parts is chock-a-block full of code to help you work with Tables, Queries, Forms, Reports, do magic stuff in VBA, automate Active-X controls, working with the Web, and a host of useful Utilities. Chapter 24 - Useful Functions - alone is the worth the price of admission. Sadly, the book doesn't include a CD, but there is a link to any of the sample files:[...]. Direct link to the samples is: [...] I suppose you could just download the samples and try to figure out how to use them, but you really need the book to explain the code and its uses. This book is a fabulous collection of solutions and should be in every serious Access developer's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars The content is great - the Kindle edition, not so much 16 Mar. 2012
By HockeyGal7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First let me qualify "great content" - as a casual Access user who is very familiar with Excel VBA, I found the tips to be well written, logical and useful. It is not a book I will read cover to cover to learn about Access but rather use for specific solutions on current projects. For me, the content is applicable to my level - a seasoned developer on the other hand may not find much to augment their repertoire. However, I do wish I had purchased the hard copy rather than the Kindle edition. In the e-edition, the chapter titles do not appear. So even though I know that Part I deals with tables, I do not know what each chapter deals with. The table of contents is linked to the chapters so if you touch a chapter you will go directly to it. That's nice but I'd like to know where I'm going first. This hunt and peck method is supremely frustrating and takes away from a great resource. If you are working on your computer and using your tablet to reference the book, you can open up the Wiley site and browse the contents. Again though, this is a workaround and in my opinion a poor substitute for what should have been provided in the first place. Also, some of the figures and snapshots do not appear crisp nor scale well so the detail you need to see is lost. So...content - great; Kindle edition - skip. IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 16 April 2011
By mgonka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excellent book! Very easy to follow and well organized. It has been a HUGE help with designing my Access database project. This book teaches you many things that basic Access books don't even touch upon. The sections on Cascading Combo Boxes and Paired List Boxes helped me to significantly improve my project (and my knowledge). Elegant solutions to common problems. The best part - all the code is available to the reader. Hope to see a second book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 20 Mar. 2013

Some really great stuff here that you wont find in other Access Books. You can tell this was written by people who actually USE Access and not instructors. Good Buy. Not for the Beginner though.
4.0 out of 5 stars Useful ideas and code 24 Oct. 2013
By David Holladay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a fairly large library of books on programming in VBA for MSAccess, MSExcel, MSWord and many, many other programming books on a variety of other topics. One of the unique and useful aspects of this book is that it addresses specific issues, tasks or problems and does so with interesting solutions and code. The format and layout of each solution is, for me, a bit unwieldy. It seems every publisher (Wrox, O'Reilly, Wiley) has adopted a different format for the presentation and discussion of code as it relates to a given solution and that difference requires a bit of "translation" between publishers and takes some getting used to when switching between publishers -- so maybe it's just me...
