From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
Microsoft Press gave Rick Dobson a few extra months to finish Microsoft Access 2002 Core Reference, and the payoff is a book far deeper, richer, and more useful than the solid Access 2000 guide it replaces.
Where the previous edition contained one chapter on data access, this book dedicates nearly 250 pages to the subject, covering ADO, command and parameter objects, select and parameter queries, ADO event programming, the ADOX library, Jet SQL, and a whole lot more.
Also added: thorough coverage of using Access 2002 to build and manage SQL Server solutions. This one's a biggie. Access is, well, more access-ible than SQL Server, making it easier for more people to build enterprise solutions, and offering powerful RAD tools for creating forms, reports, and web pages. Dobson covers just about all of this -- including views, stored procedures, triggers, SQL-DMO programming, even security.
No book on Access 2002 development would be complete without web coverage, and there's plenty of it here: not just Data Access Pages but XML Data Representations and the FrontPage 2002 Database Wizard, too. Access is alive and well -- and with this book, Access programmers can push it further than ever before. (Bill Camarda)
