5.0 out of 5 stars Pleased with Access 2010 Inside/Out Nov. 24 2010
By Web Designer Hobbyist - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is very comprehensive. I have not read through the complete book as yet, however, the big advantage is that you can go to any section/subject and get the in depth information you require at any particular time. The information is also very clear and delves in great depth into each subject.

I especially like the complete samples of various database(s) as well as samples and code where applicable on the companion CD. With the CD you have the ability to load all these items onto your computer and make the references available at all times.

The greatest asset on the companion CD for me is the PDF file of the complete book. As I get older my eyesight is not like it used to be and I have trouble reading many books and periodicals. Having the book on PDF format makes it very easy for me to read.

Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you have 64-bit PC March 29 2011
By Su Doku - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It has a lot of good content. The cd has a pdf version of the book and 4 sample programs. The samples are written in Access 2007 and none are compatible with Windows 7 64-bit OS. I managed to get one program to run out of the 4. The rest still need code debugging. This is an important problem because the book references and relies on its sample databases. The pages in my book were printed in very light ink. The diagrams/figures are barely readable with faint wording that's smaller than microprint. It's nanoprint. The publisher's website isn't helpful.

The authors say they assume readers are running 32-bit Windows 7. This should be said upfront in the book's description. Bottomline, it's hypocritical to use Access 2007 samples to teach Access 2010. And, the entire book has poor print quality. I'm returning it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 64-bit compatible FILES available for download March 6 2012
By Eagleclaww - Published on
Ok, I originally posted that this was not 64 bit compatable. I contacted O'Reilly Media, and they linked me the files that will work on the 64 bit version of Windows/Access 2010.


Happy Trails.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Feb. 2 2011
By Denis - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title of this book is totally misleading. Inside Out does not imply great insight or depth of coverage of the product. It is purely an acronym for its side bar or in-line comments (probably by the sub-author) on the main text. It is not aimed at the experienced developer, but at someone who has used MS Access casually in the past, or for very small personal applications and is now forced to upgrade to Offfice 2010, because you would never do it voluntarily. If you are a serious developer this will not provide any assistance at all to make the transition from Access 2003 to the 2007-2010 format. I am struggling to find anything that can help me to get my complex Access 2003 to run in Access 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 'Must-Have' Reference with great insight for Access 2010 Dec 11 2010
By Crystal - Published on
"Access 2010 Inside Out" is a 'must-have' reference. It is everything you'd expect from a series started by the legendary John Viescas, who is, in my opinion, the world-most authority on SQL (structured query language) and a top developer. Years before Jeff Conrad started writing books, he was building Access applications and sharing his knowledge in public forums. I learned from his posts (AccessJunkie) and great website (AccessJunkie dot com). Now that he is a member of the Microsoft Access development team, Jeff writes with even more insight.

As a long-time developer, when Access 2007 first came out, I had troubles with the new interface since it was so different. Inside Out gave me the comfort and knowledge I needed. I began using Access 2010 more than a year ago (started with beta version). Much of what I learned about the new features was by trial and error and banging my head. Now, this book saves me a lot of frustration and explains things in an understandable way. Like the earlier versions, "Access 2010 Inside Out" has a logical flow that is easy to read and exceptionally thorough. Once again, I have what I need by my side to dive into uncharted waters with confidence.

In addition to building applications, I teach Access and need to know that the information I am passing on is accurate. I keep a copy of "Inside Out" nearby so I can look something up if I have a question about the way it works or want to get ideas on how to better explain it.

Having the whole book on CD and being able to search it electronically is invaluable. I can take the book with me on a stick and read it on any computer. While the printed book is not in color, the eBook does use color. The book itself has a comprehensive table of contents and index, which makes finding things easy. Sometimes I search the eBook to find a specific page I want to read in the actual book so I can highlight, write notes in the margins, and tab pages. The eBook makes this already great reference even more outstanding.

In addition to the 1500 printed pages in the book (which has all the standard topics you would expect for Access, as well as working with SharePoint and ODBC-compliant applications such as SQL Server, Oracle, and DB2), there are hundreds of extra pages on the companion CD such as the Access 2010 macro action catalog, VBA function reference, color codes, and priceless steps and tips for designing, automating, packaging, distributing, and more.

There are also several databases on the CD that serve as great examples such as Jeff's Restaurant Management Application and the Reservation application that was also included with earlier versions of the book. The basic methods and ideas can be applied to other types of businesses. For those who interface with other applications and formats, there are dBASE, xml, and other files to use for testing. There are also examples using Outlook for data collection, and automation with Excel and Word. VBA code is accessible using Alt-F11. Use SaveAsText and search for "EmMacro" to quickly see where there are embedded macros. As a developer, being able to document how the applications work is of great interest.

In one word, this book is AWESOME. It is comprehensive, accurate, and written in a style that I can relate to. I recommend "Access 2010 Inside Out" to anyone who wants a thorough reference, practical examples, and seeks a deeper than surface knowledge about Access.

I plan to buy copies of this book to give as gifts to others who use Access.

Warm Regards,
Microsoft MVP

(: have an awesome day :)
