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 are mistakes and for someone who wants to learn vba this can be very confusing.
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 develop you steadily and carefully till the end.
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.
