Part of the Professional edition of the Microsoft Office Suite, Access is a versatile database. In addition to covering troubleshooting issues on database design and use, this text explores Access 97's new Internet functionality and collaboration with other Office 97 products. Features of the book include: a "Top Ten FAQs" chapter from Stream International's database (appearing as the first chapter of the book); an "@at-a-Glance" page at the beginning of every chapter which sets the stage and provides an overview of the chapter's contents; the text is further annotated by "Author Notes, Tips and Warnings" - special pieces of wisdom that supplement the straight how-tos; a "Time-Saving Tricks" chapter, with the emphasis on undocumented material; and a listing of the most common error messages and their solutions in the final chapter.

Osborne's Answers! series aims to provide help desk-style support in the format of a book. This style works surprisingly well in the case of Access 97 Answers!, which serves as both a problem-solving reference and as a means to improve your overall Access skills.
The fact that Access uses tables, forms, queries, reports, and automation tools may help lend a kind of inexorable logic to a problem-solving scheme. As in other volumes in the series, Access 97 Answers! has a very comprehensive question-and-answer format, an exceptionally large topic and word index, and an "action index" that slices the book up in task-sized portions. It's an effective, well-executed scheme that offers a high degree of relevance and accuracy. If you're the sort of user who likes to learn by jumping into the software and picking up skills as you go, this book is a worthy companion to bring on your quest.From the Back Cover:
