Format: Paperback
As is already known, Access 2007 has a new interface, with ribbons and many new features targeted mainly to the end-user. The DEVELOPMENT process however, has not changed much.
This book presents a brief introduction of what is new in Access 2007, and then goes on to present the "development" part. Alison Balter, as in her previous books on Access Development, presents the right combination of theory and code (VBA, ADO, etc). The chapters on objects/properties/methods/events, advanced form techniques, advanced report techniques, advanced query techniques, advanced VBA techniques, and ActiveX Data Objects, to name a few, are excellent. Some chapters have been appropriately revised, some others have been completely rewritten or are new -database security, and customizing ribbons, for example. However, there is no longer coverage of DAO, and because of the new interface, the coverage of startup options is gone.
I have downloaded the book examples and source code, naming conventions (appendix A) and table structures (appendix B) without any problem. Of course, having these, you no longer need the CD.
This book is outstanding; as in the past, the technical editing is excellent and the content is superb. I expect nothing less from the terrific author Alison Balter.

Once again Sams Publishing takes the award for sloppy technical editing.

On page 2, "Included in the text and on the sample code CD-ROM is a generic error handler that you cab easily build into any of your won applications". You guessed it, there is no CD included with this book.

On page xxxxiii, "The following appendixes are available for download at [...]". If you guess that there are no such files or opportunity to download them on this web page, you would be right.

Where can we obtain the book's naming conventions appendix and the table structures to all the tables she develops in the book, for those of us who do not relish repetitive typing.

Shortcomings that mar what otherwise would be an excellent book.

I have found this book extremley helpful and like the others i was missing the cd from the book This however was easily rectified by emailing alison directly to resolve this issue of which she was extremely helpful with. On that note i believe that is more an Amazon issue as I have bough an earlier version of this same book from another source and did get the cd with it.

I've read many Access how-to books over the past 15 years. Most have been very rudimentary, but better than the original Microsoft documentation, which doesn't take much.
I bought this book to help me with a project and I was very pleasantly surprised? Following the Wizard data, background on how Wizards work, etc., I'm now using ADO to code record set manipulation with Access 2007. If you have only have money for one book, this is it. Everything you want/need to know is in the table of contents or index. The logical progressions of knowledge from fundamentals through VBA make the plot pretty good for reading straight through. This lady knows her stuff.
I love Alison Balter's work. If you want to learn Access and VBA, then you can't go wrong with this book.

I've read Alison Balters entire series of Access book more than twice each. She writes in a clear style which gets right to the point. When Access 2007 came out,I immediately ordered Alison Balters book. It helped me to get up to speed on Access 2007 and was money well spent. I would also recommend reading Access 2007 VBA published by Wrox after reading Alison's book.

I bought Alison Balter's book as I was transitioning from Access 2003 to 2007.
This book was wriiten in very good way to walk you into 2007 and shows some practical introductions and uses for VBA.
I use Access professionally and find this book to be a very good reference among other publications I keep at hand.
I recommend it for anyone who needs a better understanding to using Access 2007.
I also didn't get the CD with the book. I thought that was odd.

This is probably the best Access book ever written. It presents an overview of Access for beginner and experienced alike. A summary of the version 7 features, and why it's the best is the development section that shows the power and versatility of VBA to achieve the best performance.
Mastering Access 2007 not only shows what can be done - it also shows what is possible....With thanks.

Contrary to popular claims, no one book could cover every aspect of this subject, but if there was one single book I could own, This would be it. Extremely well written, a tiny bit of humor, a fun read (quite actually). I spent hours in this and had something to show for my money.

This book can take you from marginal knowledge to building a company wide sabotage-proof application that will command respect.

Disclaimer: this is not to say that you might not have to spend hours and hours exploring this ocean-deep hobby. Work is still essential on your part, but Balter takes as much pain out of the task as humanly possible.

A nice complimentary companion to this work is Hernandez's Database Design for Mere Mortals, but take this one first.

A terrific Value.

Steve, Akron, OH
Hobbiest and enthusiast.

Expert's Exchange fee-based newsgroup is another terrific help to get you on your way.
