Provides an overview of the features and functions of the program, discussing such topics as building queries, importing and exporting data, creating reports, securing a database, and distributing an Access application.
If you’re developing a database application with the tools in Microsoft Access, this book gives
you a thorough understanding of “programming without pain.” It provides a solid foundation
for designing databases, forms, and reports and getting them all to work together. You’ll
learn that you can quickly create complex applications by linking design elements with Visual
Basic. This book will also show you how to take advantage of some of the more advanced features
of Microsoft Access. You’ll learn how to build an Access project that links directly to a
Microsoft SQL Server database. You’ll also learn how to use Access tools to link to your Access
data from the Web or link your Access application to data stored on the Web.
If you’re new to developing applications, particularly database applications, this probably
should not be the first book you read about Microsoft Access. I recommend that you first
take a look at Microsoft Office Access 2003 Step by Step or Faster Smarter Microsoft Office
