What is this book about?

Access 2002 is the core database application within the Office XP suite. Using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the user can create his or her own programs in what is essentially a subset of the Visual Basic programming language.

Using VBA with Access is a tremendously powerful technique, as it allows you to create great user interfaces (like forms or reports) as a front end to actual data storage and manipulation within the database itself.

What does this book cover?

This book is a revision of the best-selling Beginning Access 2000 VBA, reworked to provide a rich tutorial to programming Access 2002 with VBA. New material covers the enhanced options in Access 2002 for publishing data to the Web, handling XML, integrating with SQL Server Desktop Engine, and so on.

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, and who now wants to learn how to program with VBA. No prior knowledge of programming is required.
