Like thousands of professionals, you may recognize Alison Balter from her extensive series of Access training videos. But, good as they are, they can't cover every fine point of Access development: for that, you need a book. Whether you're an experienced developer or a power user ready to start writing real code, Alison Balter's Mastering Microsoft Access 2002 Desktop Development will get you where you want to go.
Balter starts with a thorough review of the fundamentals: what every developer needs to know about tables, relationships, data integrity, queries, forms, and reports. Next, she introduces the latest version of VBA: its relationship to Access 2002 and its key objects, methods, properties, and events. The book includes detailed chapters on building more sophisticated and efficient forms, reports, and queries; and on using class modules to package your code for easier reuse.
That's just the beginning: Balter offers detailed coverage of debugging, error handling, optimization, and ADO; start-to-finish coverage of building multi-user and enterprise applications; practical security techniques and sample code. If you're up to it, she even introduces "black-belt" techniques such as Automation, and leveraging the Win32 API from within Access. This isn't just "Access": It's power. (Bill Camarda)
