All wrox books ship without CDs. You are supposed to download the code from their website.
Shame on you who can't be bothered to visit their site even once!

It is not for beginners. It should be called "An Introduction to Access VBA", because it is very theoretical, and the authors seem not have the knowledge of the difficulties the beginners in programming are faced, when trying to run the code by simply copying it from the text.For example, in the ulterior version refering to Access 97, if you dont have the cursor on the name of the procedure or function you wont get it running when the run button or run menu is clicked. That is an information that a beginning book should teach to beginners. This version, refering to Access 2002, is enlarged by new interesting contributions, like to specify records that should be reported using a filter form.I like the way Wrox books are formated, but this book miss revision in text and code.As a beginner in VBA, I can bear errors in text, but when neither the code on the book or on the CD runs, I am disappointed and I would advise only skilled programmers willing to find out why the code didn't work to buy the book.Until a full revision be done, beginners dont buy it. I am longing for a Microsoft Team Access 2002 VBA Step by Step, or a Beginning Access 2002 VBA by John Connell.

I knew how to do all the basics in access, Make forms, reports, basic queries, and basic access pages--so I got this book hoping to expand on the one area i was foreign to--VBA.
The first 150 pages were great, very clear and like any WROX book, they do these 'do it yourself' examples where they make you type out some code.
After roughly page 150, I began to get sucked into a quagmire of theory and less and less practical application. I went into this book hoping to answer the single question 1. What practical uses of VBA can i employ in my bio-tech work environment? As I proceeded into the book I realized that I was being lost in theory and -0- practical application. The book sure tells you what an Array is, what Functions are, Methods, operators, etc--but you know what? I sure wish there were some practical examples! good lord, there is an entire chapter on the history of DAO stuck in the middle of useful information.
This book for the most part is a massive amount of theory which is used in THEIR context, not one that one could think 'hey..that might be useful!'---on page 226 I realized I had found something that might be useful to me: a way to count how many records are in a table. Excellent. It only took 226 pages to get there. But other than that--I have 250 pages of information stored in my brain and can't think of any practical use for them! The book has a large 'ice cream' database that it uses for examples, but its really really just not very helpful.
Its method of teaching I think contains way too much theory and far too little practical training and experience.

I was looking for a book that had theory and enough exercises to improve my fluency in use of VBA. This book has the theory but, due to an obviously extremely flawed production process, fails to include the chapter by chapter sample files on its CD that the authors claim are included. This severely constrains its overall utility. Also, as another reviewer has indicated, the authors sometimes play fast and loose with some of their explanations. I could probably overlook this, if the sample files had been included on the CD or if the publishers respected their customers enough to provide them with a page to download the files. Instead, the publishers simply indicate that they will not help title purchasers.

If you want to expand your theoretical understanding of Access 2002 and can get this title at a good discounted rate, you may want to consider purchasing this title. However, if you want both theory and practice, this book has very little to offer.
