Format: Paperback
Some years ago Microsoft created a specialized programming language to allow extensions to be made to the normal modes of operation allowed in their Office suite. The language was fairly well thought out to be applicable to applications as different as word processing, spreadsheets or data bases. They called it Visual Basic for Applications shortened to VBA. It has worked remarkable well. Down theough the years there have been relatively few changes to VBA.

This book is on VBA as specifically oriented to the Microsoft Access database program. But if you learn Access VBA, you are not far from knowing how to use VBA on any of the other Office components.

While this is an Access book, it is specifically on VBA, it assumes that you already know about how to build a table, and about rows and columns. It also assumes that you have some familiarty with other Access features such as building queries.

Access goes to a great deal of effort to avoid having to use the underlying SQL language. There are a couple of chapters on SQL for the total beginner. In the long run, you will probably want to know more.

You can't design one book to do everything in about 400 pages. This "dummies" book concentrates on VBA. That's enough for one book. It does a good job on VBA. You may want to fill out your bookshelf with Access for Dummies and SQL for Dummies.

I own several books on Access 2007 VBA programming, as any programmer would. In hindsight this has been the most valuable resource in adding actual, real world functionality to my applications. It is concice and uses lots of how-to examples. I do not normally like the "...for dummies" books, but this one is a keeper, big time.

This was disappointing for a geek who likes to work the nuts and bolts of programming because much of this book gives instruction about using the Access program's built-in wizards but not so much about how to make things happen when the wizard doesn't produce the effect desired. I got a lot more useful information by searching on-line for specific directions.

I am using MS ACCESS for some time and still as a refresher I have to recommend this book. The author managed to guide the reader through the chapters by always pointing out issues with older versions that has been taking care of. In general a good technical book that will assist anyone with only the minimum MS ACCESS knowledge.

This is a really well written and instructive book. It has excellent examples including a complete VBA function example for converting a dollar amount into a combination dollar and word format for printing a check. Great! Just what I needed to write an Access VBA small business accounting program that tracks and prints checks.

I borrowed a VBA book from a programmer buddy of mine at work to try to teach myself, but it was a developers' reference and most of it was way over my head. I bought this book, and it is much better for someone like me, who has had little to no exposure to VBA and programming in general.

I have rarely been disappointed with Dummies Books on any subject. You won't get a lot of depth, but hey, that's not the point of Dummies Books. You will get:

An excellent overview of usable basic code
Easy to read & follow
Helpful & clear advice
