Thou Shalt Not Commit Help Adultery

Microsoft Access is a computer program that has its own, built-in Help system. The VBA Editor is a separate program that has its own built-in Help system. They are not one and the same. For help on Access matters, use Access Help (see the top of Figure 15-2). For help with VBA, use VBA Help (see the bottom of the figure). If you're in doubt, try both. Don't just try one and give up. Don't guess!

VBA Help

Use the taskbar buttons or press Alt+F11 to switch between Access and the VBA Editor program windows.

When all else fails, go to http://search.microsoft.com and search for more information. Make sure to include relevant words, like Access VBA, in all searches, or you may end up with 196,342 irrelevant links to sift through.

If you use Google, or any other whole-Web search engine, to search for help, be sure to include even more relevant words, like Microsoft Office Access VBA. Otherwise, you might end up with more links than you could view in 100 lifetimes.
