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.
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.
Her products are always extremely helpful, probably because she is a professional consultant and database techie, instead of someone who just writes about or dabbles in Access. Real pros are interested in things such as using Access (or another tool) as a front end for SQL server, or in producing work that is useful for a customer, instead of just entertaining themselves producing simple personal databases which have no value in the commercial world [read Northwind database here], or are suitable only for a group of 3 people.
I am not a programmer, but I did lead a project team of two (one programmer and me), and by using tools (Microsoft's and others) we produced a large, successful state wide SQL system used by the State Government. This time around, it's just me, so I needed some help, even though decades ago I worked for IBM in mainframe systems (IBM invented the relational database). I also worked for some very large consulting concerns. So although I am not an expert, my opinion should be worth something.Read more ›
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.
