Expert Access 2007 Programming
As the most popular database system in the world, Microsoft Access is used by millions of people and supported by hundreds of thousands of Access developers. The 2007 version marks the largest release of Access in five years. Written by design engineers on the Access test team at Microsoft, this book introduces you to the many new features of Access 2007 and shows you innovative ways of looking at old problems such as automation, debugging, and deployment.
The authors break down the book into four parts—programming Access applications, data manipulation, interacting with the application, and finalizing the application—in order to walk you through the important steps of creating a full-featured application. They also provide you with in-depth examples that require only minor modifications and then can be easily implemented in the real world. You'll quickly learn how the 2007 version makes it simpler to write quality Access applications with XML, C#, and other .NET languages that are actually fun to write, feature rich, and easy to use.
