The book is broken into 43 "tips," but it contains much much more than just 43 individual bits of code. Each of the eight parts is chock-a-block full of code to help you work with Tables, Queries, Forms, Reports, do magic stuff in VBA, automate Active-X controls, working with the Web, and a host of useful Utilities. Chapter 24 - Useful Functions - alone is the worth the price of admission. Sadly, the book doesn't include a CD, but there is a link to any of the sample files:[...]. Direct link to the samples is: [...] I suppose you could just download the samples and try to figure out how to use them, but you really need the book to explain the code and its uses. This book is a fabulous collection of solutions and should be in every serious Access developer's library.
First let me qualify "great content" - as a casual Access user who is very familiar with Excel VBA, I found the tips to be well written, logical and useful. It is not a book I will read cover to cover to learn about Access but rather use for specific solutions on current projects. For me, the content is applicable to my level - a seasoned developer on the other hand may not find much to augment their repertoire. However, I do wish I had purchased the hard copy rather than the Kindle edition. In the e-edition, the chapter titles do not appear. So even though I know that Part I deals with tables, I do not know what each chapter deals with. The table of contents is linked to the chapters so if you touch a chapter you will go directly to it. That's nice but I'd like to know where I'm going first. This hunt and peck method is supremely frustrating and takes away from a great resource. If you are working on your computer and using your tablet to reference the book, you can open up the Wiley site and browse the contents. Again though, this is a workaround and in my opinion a poor substitute for what should have been provided in the first place. Also, some of the figures and snapshots do not appear crisp nor scale well so the detail you need to see is lost. So...content - great; Kindle edition - skip. IMO.
Excellent book! Very easy to follow and well organized. It has been a HUGE help with designing my Access database project. This book teaches you many things that basic Access books don't even touch upon. The sections on Cascading Combo Boxes and Paired List Boxes helped me to significantly improve my project (and my knowledge). Elegant solutions to common problems. The best part - all the code is available to the reader. Hope to see a second book!
