More About the Author

It all started with Creative Writing 101 back in high school. There are oodles of unfinished fiction works around my desk, but it has been writing techy and artsy books that are the path I walk these days.

Hope you enjoy what I have provided. It's always a hoot writing a book - keeping late hours, forgetting to eat, and trying to pet my cat and type at the same time.

Thanks!

Ken B

Format: Paperback
This book is not about designing forms, primary keys, or the use of built-in wizards to make easy queries or reports. This book is about applying Access to real-world business problems. The book addresses how to query data, how to move data to and from Access in various ways, the calculation of different financial and investment terms, and other such problems. The reader of this book should already have some Access experience and thus know how to get around the Access user interface, know basic table structures and relations among them, and how to construct simple queries. As long as you know this much or more, the book should be quite useful to anyone interested in business solutions using Access to analyze the data that is involved. The book consists of a series of recipes that provide example queries, programming tips, and also some requisite math. The following is a summary of each chapter's contents. Each section of each chapter is actually a recipe consisting of a problem - the section title - and its solution(s).

1. Query Construction - A variety of query issues are addressed, including the use of the AND, OR, IN, and NOT operators; creating union queries; and understanding join types.
1.1. Finding Unmatched Records
1.2. Making AND and OR Do What You Expect
1.3. Working with Criteria Using the IN Operator
1.4. Excluding Records with the NOT Operator
1.5. Parameterizing a Query
1.6. Returning a Top or Bottom Number of Records
1.7. Returning Distinct Records
1.8. Returning Random Records
1.9. Fine-Tuning Data Filtering with Subqueries
1.10. Combining Data with Union Queries
1.11. Inserting On-the-Fly Fields in Select Queries
1.12. Using Aliases to Simplify Your SQL Statements
1.13.

Format: Paperback
I am not sure if this was the intention of the authors, but I find this book to be amazingly helpful given my set of circumstances: I am pretty skilled in Excel and very new to Access, and I want to use Access in the same way I use Excel, but with much larger quantities of data. Of all the Access books I have been referencing, this one is by far the most useful. It provides lots of information on SQL if you are interested, but I'm ignoring that for now and still the book is great at providing the answers I need. I suspect there are lots of people in my shoes (heavy Excel background, but little experience with Access) and so I want to let you know about this excellent reference. I hope it helps you as much as it is helping me!

To be more specific, if you are skilled at constructing formulas in Excel to convert and reformat and analyze data, and you have at least a rudimentary understanding of Access (I have attended a few 2-hour workshops and that's all), and you find yourself stumped in terms of how to do something in Access that would be easy for you to do in Excel, but you can't do it in Excel because you have millions of rows of data, then I'm guessing you will love this book.

This book is compatible for Access 2007 and 2003(title of book doesn't let you know that), what it does is answer questions that the author poses. Many of these scenarios are relevant. I have never bought an o'reilly cookbook previously, but this book is very refreshing especially when you look at the current books out there. This book isn't for new people, this book is for people who want real solutions to the problems that they might face. If your looking for a first book to get a real grasp of access, get Access 2007 Inside and Out, if your someone who has read a book or two, or has some experience but still runs into hurdles in data manipulation, get this book.

The 'Access Data Analysis Cookbook' is a fantastic resource manual for anyone that needs to use Access on a daily basis to get the information they crave. Jammed with over 100 'recipes', you will learn how to write queries, export/import data, generate statistics, build/work with strings, and better manage your data.

I love this book. I have used Access for many years and feel that anyone that has to work with this simple, effective database at your job should pick up this great book, I guarantee it will help you out and save loads of time!

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

If you do a lot of serious Microsoft Access database programming using queries, recordsets, Structured Query Language and VBA programming, this is an excellent reference manual to have up on your bookshelf. If you are a novice Access database user, this book will probably baffle more than it will assist. It's designed for the programmer who already has a good working knowledge of Access and wants to expand their abilities in what the database can really do with your data. The book contains excellent suggestions for manipulating and displaying your data in new ways. Each example is well written, clearly described with illustrations and followed up with a discussion on what was just done, how it was done and why it did what it did. I have already read 1/3 of the book and come away with several OMG inspirations that I will definitely use in future databases. Even though it was written for Office 2003, the lessons still apply to the most current revision of Access.
