From the Author
Note to previous "Running Access" buyers:
This fourth edition of "Running Access" contains yet another major new sample database full of examples using the new HyperLinks. I added a chapter on Security and using the ODE, and made a major update to the chapter on SQL -- including examples that can now all be found in the sample databases. The CD-ROM also contains a hypertext version of the book that you can search online using your favorite browser.

Viescas' aims to teach the reader how to build a database, rather than offering a reference book for Access 97. Thus, he uses many sample databases and encourages users to modify various aspects after explaining each process. Many dislike this approach but databases are so complicated that this approach is perfectly valid. The disadvantage here is that if you're trying to sort out a problem with a database you've designed from scratch, it can be tricky to find the answers sometimes.
The CD offers the whole book in elecronic format - accessed via Internet Explorer - as well as the many database examples, Word dcouments, graphics links, etc.
In the end, a more modern publication my offer a better structure but users of this program will likely have financial concerns, so this offers a very usable alternative. Despite some very negative reviews here, there isn't anything actually wrong with this title - but much that is right. If you want help with Access 97, this will give it to you.

Perfect for general reading of Access as a database but also serves as a brilliant reference tool for the beginner or the skilled programmer.Published on 5 Oct. 1998
