Conventions Used in This Book
Throughout this book, we've used the following
- Constant width
Constant width in body text indicates a language construct, such as
the name of a stored procedure, a SQL statement, a VBA statement, an
enumeration, an intrinsic or user-defined constant, a structure
(i.e., a user-defined type), or an expression (e.g.,
dblStartTime). Code fragments and code examples
appear exclusively in constant-width text. In syntax statements and
prototypes, text set in constant width indicates such language
elements as the function or procedure name and any invariable
elements required by the syntax.
- Constant width italic
Constant width italic is used in body text for variables and
parameter names. In syntax statements or prototypes, constant width
italic indicates replaceable parameters.
Italicized words in the text indicate intrinsic or user-defined
function and procedure names. Example URLs are also
italicized, as are many system elements, such as paths and filenames.
Finally, italics are used the first time a new term appears.
