Do yourself a favor, start at chapter 1, read ALL of the book (even if you THINK you know how to do something) & do the exercises. By the end of chapter 3 I realized my biggest problem was 3 or 4 simple (but VITAL) steps that I was always missing. PLUS, you'll quickly learn fast & easy shortcuts, multiple ways to do things based on your personal preference &/or needs.
Thank You Mathew and all who contributed to creating this wonderful book, it is honestly one of the BEST investments I have made for my office as well as my hobbies. I thought I knew WORD & EXCEL, but I will be buying those books as well, as I'm sure they too will unlock many hidden tools that I can discover and fall in love with. I NOW ENJOY MY OFFICE AGAIN! I'm always surprising people with the speed that I can access tons of different data. Information is meaningless if you can't access it quickly & easily, if you get this book you will be 'smart' and on top of things quickly. I've even have friends who never saw the need or desire for any database software, now they can't live without it. I could go on, but I'll settle down now (I hope my JOY and ENTHUSIASM about this book has come across to you in this post.
Buy and read this book (and keep it handy as a reference manual) you won't regret it! Seriously, Don Michaels.
Another thing that should help all users, at least in the Kindle version, is the index. It is very detailed and has very direct links. I found converting databases written in Access 2003 worked smoothly, when I simply looked problems up in the index. And new database development worked equally smoothly.
In brief, this is the book I was looking for.
Also, busy people do not need or want to read unnecessary musings about hypothetical companies. For example, the author writes "In this example, you'll meet Boutique Fudge, a mail-order company that serves decadent treats to a large audience of chocolate-crazed customers. Their daring chefs are always innovating, and they need a better way to manage their ever-growing catalog of chocolate goodness. They also need a way to keep track of customers and the orders they make." Is this supposed to make the book enjoyable? Personally, I just want to cover the material as fast as possible. The author's fantasy is just slowing me down. I would have preferred "Consider a hypothetical company that needs to catalog products and track customers and their orders." Done.
