Overview

Microsoft Access 2 Developer's Handbook is the programmer's guide to developing good-looking, easy-to-use, high-performance Access applications. Packed with tips, tricks, secrets, and undocumented features, this book is presented in an accessible, read-as-you-need format. Practical coverage includes an introduction to solid database design, the difference between Access SQL and ANSI SQL, the capabilities of the powerful new Data Access Object (DAO) language, and query optimization. Valuable tutorials range from designing great-looking user interfaces to creating unique solutions for common interface design problems, such as auto-sizing forms and controls, creating right-mouse-click menus, and communicating directly with the printer driver. A special section demonstrates how to develop robust and efficient multiuser applications, both for the file-server and client-server environments. Topics include using DLLs, the Windows API, DDE, OLE 2 Automation, and OLE custom controls. Learn all about MSAU200.DLL, the undocumented library used by the Access Wizards. You'll also learn to create your own Wizards, add-ins, and on-line Help, and how to programmatically manipulate security.

If you blink, you may confuse this book with the super-popular Microsoft Access 95 Developer's Handbook, and it's just as useful and recommended, with the same great information on developing better Access applications with easy-to-use and elegant interfaces. Greg Reddick from the Access development team and the editor of Smart Access team up with another Smart Access editor to create a real insider's guide to developing cleaner, faster, more reliable, and better-looking Access applications, using the easiest methods and the coolest undocumented features and tricks to get the job done. One programmer insisted he learned all he knew about Access programming from the Access 2 Developer's Handbook, and says the book "never leaves my side." You'll find it indispensable too.
