Format: Paperback
The author uses ACCESS in this book as the database - NOT Excel. Excel can be used as a database, but this author wimps out and uses Access instead. As an Excel developer, I can make databases in Excel (without Access). The title of this book implies that you CAN use Excel as a Database (and you can), but not with the info in this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is useful in some respects, such as filters, pivot tables and importing data from external databases. However, when it comes to designing relational databases, this one is so bad it is comical. They have no concept of when and how you use create a relational database.

The following are actual examples from the book:
On page 19, The following data tables are recommended with the number the code to use and the value following:

Cities
1-Portland
2-Salem
3-Spokane

State
1-Oregon
2-Washington

Dates
1-Feb 15
2-Feb 16
3-Feb 17
4-Feb 18

Air Quality
1-Moderate
2-Good

None of these should be using number codes.
Cities should be spelled out, State Abbreviations should be used for States, Actual Dates should be used for dates
Air Quality values should have been letters as abbreviations.

He actually recommends using data codes to refer to home addresses instead of the actual address. This is a great example of when NOT to use data codes. The book is a joke.

Good book for learning and using excel as database. The author has tried to show how to use excel as database. For Excel Developer this book is good. I am Office & Engineering Software Developer and Engineering Assistant. I have been wanting such type of database related book for Excel Development for a long time. Thanks to Paul Cornell.
