Jumpstart Creating a Simple VBA Program

In This Chapter

^ Creating a standard module ^ Creating procedures ^ Getting help with VBA keywords ^ Modifying existing code isual Basic for Applications (VBA) is a programming language for writing yr instructions that tell Office applications — like Access — the steps needed to perform a task. You store code in Access modules. The tool that you use to create and edit VBA code is the Visual Basic editor, which opens automatically whenever you open an Access module. (If you need a refresher on the basics of the Visual Basic editor, hop back to Chapter 2.)

In this chapter, I get into some of the nitty-gritty of what's really involved in writing VBA code within Access. You'll discover how to create a module in Access and how to create procedures within a module. You'll also read about VBA syntax, which defines the rules you need to follow when writing a VBA statement.
