Welcome to the Access 2003 VBA Programmer's Reference. We wrote this book for Access users and programmers who want to increase the power of Access by adding the VBA (Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications) language. Access is Microsoft's leading consumer relational database management system for desktop applications. It's so popular because it's relatively easy to learn and very powerful. With wizards and detailed help files, users can easily create tables, queries, forms, and reports after only a brief introduction.
To utilize the power of Microsoft Access more effectively, you can add VBA code to your Access databases. By using VBA code, you can respond to application-level events, display forms and reports, manipulate toolbars, and even launch external applications or control certain aspects of Windows.
