About This Book

I wish I could say that this book is exactly like a coffee-table book, where you could just pick it up, flip to any page, and have everything make perfect sense to you. Well, I could say that, but I'd be lying if I did. It's not because I wanted to break from the coffee-table book idea. It's really more because some stuff in life doesn't make much sense until after you already know something else.

Here, it's not really possible to make much sense of VBA code until you understand what VBA code is and why it exists. And, we are talking about Microsoft Access VBA here. To make sense of much of anything in this book, you have to already be familiar with Microsoft Access tables, queries, forms, and reports. There just isn't enough room in this book to explain all that stuff from scratch and still have enough pages left over to talk about VBA.

On the bright side, I did everything I could to make it easy to find what you need to know, when you need to know it. It's certainly not necessary to read this book cover to cover to make sense of things. After you find the topic you're looking for, you should be able to read through the section and be done with it quickly. Often, you'll be able to skip reading altogether and get all you need to know from the pictures in that section.
