Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is for the Access user who already has a knowledge of databases and the basic objects of an Access database such as tables, queries, forms and reports, but now wants to learn how to program with VBA. You don't need any prior programming experience, although a basic knowledge of Access macros would be helpful. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Access 2000 is the fifth version of the hugely successful desktop database from Microsoft. When it was first released in 1992, Access immediately gained praise for its ease of use and power. Each release of Access has added features and increased usability, and with Access 2000 we now have a unified development environment for the whole of the Office 2000 suite of applications. Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is the programming language that gives Access its real power, allowing you to automate complex tasks and create applications with more scope and flexibility than is possible with its default forms and macros. VBA has a simple syntax allowing even complete novices to learn programming with very little effort, and this book illustrates the concepts with plenty of examples and exercises.

I have about 12 books on Access development in my bookcase and this is one that I can't stop reading. Why? Because it's done like I think a good beginners book should be. Many books contain a lot of babbling and not enough 'good' examples. This one is different.
Hundreds of useful examples, well explained, waiting to be typed (or used from the CD) can be found. The book explains very well their choice of using DAO over ADO, I thing it's a very good idea. As far as I'm concerned, I thing it's one of the best solid introduction to Access VBA you can find. As an Access teacher, I found some very good concepts and approaches in their projects.
You're very familiar with Access interface? Was exposed to VBA a little? Willing to bring your apps to new heights? Want to see some examples? Then this book IS for you. The pace is reasonable, the writing is great, there are easy to more complex concepts explained. As the title implies, this is a beginning VBA book, not a developer's handbook. But don't be misled by the word 'Beginning', there is serious stuff in there like Class objects, networking issues and approaches to solving good problems.
You're tired of books saying, you could do this or do that without explaining how? This book is not like that. Finally, a book that left out that Northwind omnipresent database and came up with something different!

Format: Paperback
This is a solid book, nicely written, and the authors have obviously put a lot of thought and good effort into it. However, in it's introduction, the authors advise that you don't really need to know anything about programming in order to understand the book. In my experience that's not correct. While a beginner can understand parts of the book, you soon get the feeling that you are in over your head. It gets into fairly complex code quite quickly. It would be a great book if you are taking a class or have a teacher to explain the parts that need clarification. But for a beginner like myself trying to learn VBA on my own, it's too much too soon. Another thing that this book (or any book) could do to help you learn is provide a lot of problems at the end of each chapter for you to try and apply what you learned, sort of the way we learned algebra in high school.
Evan Callahan's Book, Step By Step Microsoft Access VBA is a much more basic beginner's book. It takes you by the hand and gets you writing code quickly. It does not take you very far into VBA, but does get you going.
The next book I'd recommend is VBA Handbook by Susan Novalis. It's a much more gentle intro than is Sussman's book. In fact, after you learn Novalis' book you will probably be ready for Sussman's book.

I bougth this book and discovered that it was not for someone like me just learning Access VBA.
In fact I had to buy Access 2000 VBA Handbook by Susann Novalis (ISBN 0782123244) simply this book did not cut is for me as a beginner. If you are starting out and know little or nothing about Access VBA DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. Instead I recommend Novalis.
With Novalis, you will learn to create forms, print to list box, sort records, create recordset, simple SQL and much more that can get you started on creating greate Access databases using VBA.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book that covers many important aspects of VBA and access programming. The title "Beginning" of this book, however, is a bit misleading, because the pace is probably too fast for people who are new to coding. The exercises at the end of each chapter usually require the readers to use new things not covered in the book, so most of the time, I would have to look at the answers first, and then try to understand how the problems are solved. Therefore I feel that the authors are trying to jam in as much information as they possibly can on the topics within limited space. Fortunately the explanations for the codes are well done, and the author stick to their promise that this is a book about the VBA, not 'How-to-use-access'. The authors stick with DAO all through the book and leave out ADO entirely. I agree with them on that decision, so that one can really get a good feel for DAO and not lose focus trying to learn 2 technologies at once. If you can go through this book and understand the concepts and details, I would recommend, as the next step, a developer's reference, such as Access 2000 Developers' Handbook from Sybex.

Format: Paperback
After developing in Access & SQL Server for a number of years, I was always intimidated by VB development and had made a conscious effort to develop "work-arounds" for my lack of hard-coding skill. However, my current project required that I take-over and inherit someone else's work. Imagine my horror when I discovered that the person who built the database I had to maintain had done so almost entirely in VBA (and didn't document a single word of code). Where were all the macros? Where had my happy place gone? I begrudgingly accepted the fact that I would have to learn VBA in order to fix this database and support it. Although I'm not quite through the book, I felt like it was written specifically for guys like me. You must know your Access and your basic theory of database, but if syntax and coding experience is what you need, this book is great. I plan on getting the "Professional" version by Wrox as well.
