Conventions Used

This book uses a number of different styles of text and layout in the book, to help differentiate between different kinds of information. Here are some of the styles and an explanation of what they mean:

These boxes hold important, not-to-be forgotten, mission-critical details that are directly relevant to the surrounding text.

Background information, asides, and references appear in text like this.

□ Important words are italicized

□ Words that appear on the screen, such as menu options, are capitalized—for example, the Tools menu.

□ All object names, function names, and other code snippets are in this style: SELECT.

Code that is new or important is presented like this:

SELECT CustomerID, ContactName, Phone FROM Customers

Code that you've seen before or has little to do with the matter being discussed, looks like this: SELECT ProductName FROM Products
