Who This Book Is For
You don't have to be a VBA whiz to use this book.
It's designed for all levels of readers: end users,
power users, and developers.
In every case, we've made the steps needed to
implement our solution as simple as possible. When VBA is involved,
we've recommended which modules to import from the
sample database and discussed the important features of the code
within the text. You shouldn't have to retype any of
the code unless you care to—in fact, you
shouldn't retype the code, since we rarely include
every single line of code here in the book. We've
pointed out the important code here but left much of the support code
on the CD-ROM (see http://examples.oreilly.com/accesscook).
What's more, you don't actually
have to understand the solutions to most of the problems covered in
this book in order to make use of them. In each case,
you'll find a sample database that demonstrates the
technique and explicit instructions on how to implement the same
technique in your own applications. Of course,
you'll learn the most by digging into the samples to
see how they work, and each solution includes comments to help you
understand the underlying technology.
