Other AccessVBA Sources

Just as no man (or woman) is an island, no book can be all things to all readers. No matter how many times you read this book, it can't tell you the meaning of life any more than it can tell you everything you need to know about VBA within Microsoft Access. There are several other resources you'll want to utilize while writing your VBA code. Some of our favorites are:

□ Microsoft Newsgroups—Microsoft maintains a news server (msnews.microsoft.com) and has a wide variety of Access and VBA newsgroups to choose from. Currently there are more than 25 Access newsgroups for you to choose from. They all begin with microsoft.public.access. You can access newsgroups through a newsreader such as Outlook Express or through the Web at: http://support.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.aspx.

□ MVPS.ORG (http://www.mvps.org/)—This is your jumping-off point to a number of interesting offerings being provided for you by a few folks associated with the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) program.

□ Microsoft Access Support Center (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;en-us;acc&x=16&y=16)—This provides information about current issues, downloads, updates, and of course ways of obtaining product support.

□ Microsoft on Google (http://www.google.com/microsoft)—This harnesses the power of Google and limits the searches to Microsoft-related sites.

□ Microsoft Developer Network (http://msdn.microsoft.com)—The Developer Center for Access provides a myriad of articles and tutorials on key issues. You can also find links to usergroups, newsgroups, and other valuable resources.

□ Microsoft TechNet (http://www.microsoft.com/technet)—This site allows you to access Microsoft Knowledge Base articles, security information, and many other technical articles and tips.
