Beginning Access 2000 VBA with CDROM

Beginning Access 2000 VBA with CDROM Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Access 2000 is an important part of the Office 2000 program suite, and will be available on both the Premium and Professional editions of Office 2000. Access has traditionally been the Office suite database program par excellence. It still remains that way, but with Office 2000 the face of Access is changing. This book will look at the traditional role of Access and its future uses in the Office suite. Using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the user can program his or her own programs in what is essentially a subset of the Visual Basic programming languages. This is tremendously powerful, as it allows you to create great User Interfaces (forms etc), as a front end to actual database storage and manipulation. This continues to be one of the great strengths of programming Access VBA. With Office 2000, Access now allows users to interact with the larger SQL Server database technologies directly. The upshot of this, for Access programmers, is that much more can be done in terms of large databases, and powerful search utilities. The affect for Access 2000 is that it will become more of a front end to the SQL Server facilities. This book presents an modern update to the Beg Access VBA title, in the modern Office 2000 setting. All the great tutorial content, teaching people how to program with VBA in Access will be there, but now majorly rewritten to take account of Office 2000.

Who is this book for?
This book is for the Access user who already has a knowledge of databases, and the basic objects of an Access database, who now wants to learn how to program with VBA. No need of prior knowledge of programming required.

What does this book cover?

  • New edition of the best-selling Beg Access 97 VBA 1861000863
  • Updated to take account of the new Office2000 facilities
  • Constructs a substantial example application with VBA
  • Database theory taught in Wrox style
