Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
This is Jennings’ eleventh edition of Special Edition Using Access: he’s beyond intimately familiar with Access’s oldest nooks and newest crannies. There are a lot of both: Access 2007’s development team was seven times as large as Access 2003’s, and they weren’t playing tiddlywinks.

Jennings guides you through building great Access databases, whether you’re using Microsoft’s new templates, or designing from scratch. He’ll help you sort through Microsoft’s new database formats and Jet engine shenanigans, and find workarounds for old Access features Microsoft has removed.

There are powerful new reporting features made available through the new Create ribbon; Jennings helps you make the most of them. With Microsoft increasingly emphasizing collaboration, Jennings is right there, with a full chapter on using SharePoint lists in your databases. From data validation to crosstabs, PivotCharts to programming, Jennings delivers the goods -- as he has, well, forever. Bill Camarda, from the May 2007 Read Only
