This chapter covered the basics of VBA in Access and how to create some basic macros in Access. It also examined the new features for macros in Access 2007. Finally, it discussed why you might want to use VBA instead of a macro within Access. If you're going to use VBA, however, you'll need to understand the various components of VBA programming. Chapter 3 covers what's new in Access 2007. Chapter 4 explains how to work with the VBA Editor. Chapter 5 covers properties, methods, and events, detailing their interactions. If you're an experienced VBA programmer, you can skip Chapter 5. However, if you're a self-taught programmer (and there are many) or just want a refresher course on the basics, take a look at it.
