Microsoft Office Access 2003 provides powerful new tools with which to manage data, find and retrieve information faster than ever, share information, and integrate solutions with server side products. Access 2003 incorporates some of the latest technologies such as XML and Microsoft SharePoint to extend data exchange over an intranet or the Internet. This book covers these changes, as well as more subtle enhancements such as the addition of smart tags, a new back up database, and an error checking function to flag common mistakes. All the most important tasks are covered, and the visual format makes it easy for upgrading users to quickly get working with the latest version, or for new users to start from the beginning and build their knowledge from the ground up. Other features include a "Troubleshooting Guide" to help solve common problems, a "Project Guide" with a listing of real-world projects by feature, and a "MOS Exam Guide" with a complete listing of MOS objectives and page numbers to locate the objectives, which gives this series a clear advantage over other visual titles.
