Authors' Acknowledgments

Even though only two authors' names appear on the cover, every book is a team project. These authors would like to thank the many people who contributed to this book. To Carole McClendon and everyone at Waterside Productions, thank you for finding this project and making it happen. Also, many thanks to Kyle Looper and Jean Rogers at Wiley for taking a chance on a new author to help with the rewrite. And also, thanks to Microsoft for making Access a wonderful development environment.

About the Author

Joe Stockman is an independent consultant, software designer, and author who has been using Microsoft Access since its initial release. He's also developed courseware and taught classes in Access and VBA. Joe developed his first application in Access, and then migrated into Visual Basic and VB.NET, where he specializes in creating applications for the Windows Mobile platform. He worked for several software companies before forming his consulting business in 2002, where he deals with all types of clients including healthcare, financial, government, manufacturing, and small business. His ability to turn his customers' wishes into working applications keeps them satisfied. Joe's also writing the fundamentals column for the Advisor Guide to Microsoft Access magazine.

Alan Simpson is the author of over 100 computer books on databases, Windows, Web site design and development, programming, and networking. His books are published throughout the world in over a dozen languages and have millions of copies. Alan has also taught introductory and advanced computer programming courses at San Diego State University and the UCSD Extension. He has served as a consultant on high-technology, education-oriented projects for the United States Navy and Air Force. Despite that, Alan has no fancy job title because he has never had a real job.
