■ /BA lets you do some pretty amazing stuff in an Access database. With VBA, you can make Access do boring repetitive jobs that you might otherwise have to do on your own. You can even get Access to do things that it couldn't possibly do on its own. Before you dive right in and try to make such things happen, you need to step back a moment and get a feel for how VBA fits into the whole Microsoft Access scheme of things. Then you need to get friendly with the tools available to you for turning ideas into stuff that actually happens when you want it to happen. I'll get through all of that in Chapters 1 and 2.

With your roadmap and toolkit in hand, you'll be ready to get into what Access VBA is really all about — writing code (also known as programming) — to make Access do exactly what you want it to do. Yes, you actually write code by typing it . . . unless, of course, you can just copy and paste the code, as is often the case. Chapter 3 is about both writing and swiping VBA code.
