This book is a collaborative effort. My thanks go to the contributors for providing great hacks that I am sure you will enjoy as much as I have.
Special thanks and appreciation go to my editor, Mitch Tulloch. Mitch has stuck with me through the thick and thin of getting this project completed. His patience and perseverance have been awesome. Mitch would like to thank MTS Communications Inc. (http://www.mts.ca) for providing Internet services for hosting his web site (http://www.mtit.com).
Thanks to Michael Schmalz for tech-reviewing the material and keeping on my back about early binding versus late binding and other pertinent topics dear to our profession.
Thanks to Brian Sawyer and the great O'Reilly team. Thanks to all of you.
Thanks to my agent, Neil Salkind, and the Studio B team. Neil called me one day last year to see if I would be interested in writing Access Hacks. Of course! And that's how I met Mitch Tulloch.
Last but not least, thanks to my wife Gayla and son Matthew. Working on a book is always stressful, and they have been real troopers in giving me space and time to complete the book. It's cute to see a seven-year-old becoming such a computer pro. Often, Matthew will sit on my lap and watch what I am typing. Now he is an Access expert in his own right.
