INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

Microsoft Access 2010 allows database developers to build dynamic and easily portable databases. Access comes with many easy-to-use features such as graphical forms, database templates, SQL query builders, as well as a subset of the Visual Basic language known as VBA for building data-driven applications.

Microsoft Access VBA Programming for the Absolute Beginner, Fourth Edition, is not a guide on how to use Access and its many wizards. However, if you are new to Access, pay special attention to the first two chapters in which I discuss Access system requirements and limitations, when to choose Access over Excel, and database essentials such as tables, fields, forms, and queries.

Microsoft Access VBA Programming for the Absolute Beginner, Fourth Edition concentrates on fundamental programming concepts such as variables, conditions, loops, data structures, procedures, file I/O, and object-oriented programming. In addition to learning the fundamentals, I will show you how to program with Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), write your own Access SQL queries, build Macros, and performance-tune your Access applications!
