From the Back Cover
Access 2000 is the fifth version of the hugely successful desktop database from Microsoft. When it was first released in 1992, Access immediately gained praise for its ease of use and power. Each release of Access has added features and increased usability, and with Access 2000 we now have a unified development environment for the whole of the Office 2000 suite of applications. Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is the programming language that gives Access its real power, allowing you to automate complex tasks and create applications with more scope and flexibility than is possible with its default forms and macros. VBA has a simple syntax allowing even complete novices to learn programming with very little effort, and this book illustrates the concepts with plenty of examples and exercises.
Who is this book for?
This book is for users who already have a basic knowledge of databases and the basic Access objects, such as tables, queries, forms and reports. You now want to expand on your existing knowledge of Access and wish to learn how to program in VBA. You dont need any prior programming experience, although a basic knowledge of Access macros would be helpful.

Evan Callahan's Book, Step By Step Microsoft Access VBA is a much more basic beginner's book. It takes you by the hand and gets you writing code quickly. It does not take you very far into VBA, but does get you going.
The next book I'd recommend is VBA Handbook by Susan Novalis. It's a much more gentle intro than is Sussman's book. In fact, after you learn Novalis' book you will probably be ready for Sussman's book.
Hundreds of useful examples, well explained, waiting to be typed (or used from the CD) can be found. The book explains very well their choice of using DAO over ADO, I thing it's a very good idea. As far as I'm concerned, I thing it's one of the best solid introduction to Access VBA you can find. As an Access teacher, I found some very good concepts and approaches in their projects.
You're very familiar with Access interface? Was exposed to VBA a little? Willing to bring your apps to new heights? Want to see some examples? Then this book IS for you. The pace is reasonable, the writing is great, there are easy to more complex concepts explained. As the title implies, this is a beginning VBA book, not a developer's handbook. But don't be misled by the word 'Beginning', there is serious stuff in there like Class objects, networking issues and approaches to solving good problems.
You're tired of books saying, you could do this or do that without explaining how? This book is not like that. Finally, a book that left out that Northwind omnipresent database and came up with something different!
Private Sub SaveThisRecord_Click() Dim db As Database Dim rec As Recordset Set db = CurrentDb() Set rec = db.OpenRecordset("tbljobhoursdetail") rec.AddNew rec!EmployeeID.Value = Me![Text2].Value rec("job#").Value = Me("txtjob#").Value rec!DateWorked = Me!txtDateWorked.Value rec.Update rec.Close End Sub
