      Comments about oreilly Access Hacks:

      Get this book if you know VBA, and would like to learn some "tricks of the trade." The book is a bit dated, but almost all the hacks still work on Access 2016.

      Awful Book

      By Los

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about oreilly Access Hacks:

      I am not much of an Access expert, but bought this book after using the excell hacks book which is excellent. This Access hacks book doesn't provide any "how to" examples. It lacks a great deal of examples and focus more on content. I wouldn't recommend this book at all.
