Other AccessVBA Sources

You've heard the saying that there are as many ways to build a solution as there are programmers. Well, there is a lot of history underlying that statement. So, although this book is an excellent reference for all of your Access 2007 programming needs, there just isn't enough time and ink to cover everything — to say nothing about fixes, updates, and add-ons. That's where networking, newsgroups, and other information sites come in. Here are some of the authors' favorites for you to check out:

□ Microsoft Newsgroups — Microsoft maintains a news server and has a wide variety of Access and VBA newsgroups to choose from. Currently there are more than 18 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.

□ Microsoft Office Discussion Groups (http:// microsoft.com/office/community/ en-us/FlyoutOverview.mspx) — Microsoft is encouraging users to help each other, and it hosts discussion groups on selected products. There are currently 12 newsgroups listed for Microsoft Access.

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

□ Microsoft Access Developer Portal (http://msdn.microsoft.com/office/program/access) — Provides information about current issues, downloads, updates, and ways to obtain product support. There are links to excellent tutorials and training as well as videos about Access 2007 and links to external sites such as user groups, newsgroups, and other valuable resources.

□ Microsoft TechNet (http:// microsoft.com/technet) — Offers quick access to Microsoft Knowledge Base articles, security information, and many other technical articles and tips.

□ Microsoft Office Online - Access (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ FX010857 91103 3.aspx) — Provides quick tips, and direct links to Access resources such as downloads, templates, training, add-ins, and other pertinent information.
