I have many books on Access development, some good and some not so good. This one is always on the top of the stack for reference.
1. It was easy to understand
2. Has lots of code examples
I noticed that some others have had problems getting the online content, so I wanted to share my experience. To get the online content:
1. [...] (This is the URL listed on page XXI in the book and seemed to work fine for me)
2. On the right-hand side of the screen, in the "More Information" box, click on the "Companion Content" link.
3. You'll be redirected to another page for the book, just click on the "Download the book's sample and demo files."
4. Click the "Save" button to save the .EXE file to your computer (if you trust Microsoft Press, I did).
5. And then simply run the EXE by double-clicking on it and you'll have all of the demo and samples for the book!
Also, be sure to check out the Authors website at [...] as this site is also very helpful! Good luck and happy programming!!!
The book is well organized, the writing straight forward, the code examples highlight the concepts and make it easy to understand those concepts quickly. I *like* that!
The extremely low cost of ~$50 got me there *fast* and saved me hours of digging around the internet for the info I needed.
Spend the $$ and get the work done.
This book worth every penny.
Even better if you couple it with Programming Microsoft Office Access 2000 by the same author because they're not a rehash of each other and the latter covers the basics, such as designing tables, a bit more. The author's style is concise and to the point which allows him to span the whole gamut of what Access has to offer to the programmer.
As a developer, my clients expect me to be able to make things happen automatically. Access readily permits you to automate all aspects of it with VBA, and this book is chuck full of VBA code samples that I can readily use for my clients. The explanations of the samples are easy for me to follow.
Without burying me in trivial details or useless facts, this book empowers me to create solutions. It is just 842 pages. Big enough to cover lots of valuable content, but not so heavy that I can't conveniently carry it with me to a client's site. I especially liked that I could download from the author's web site content on extra topics, such as an intro to VBA and a whole chapter on class, form, and report modules. In fact, I am discovering that the author's web site ([...]) is a real valuable resource for me all on its own.
