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.
