Review:

Microsoft Access 97 Bible has proven so popular that IDG has re-released it as Microsoft Access 97 Bible, Gold Edition. The updated edition features new material, plus a hard cover that ought to extend the life of the book if it's often borrowed from the desks of office managers and systems teams.

Microsoft Access 97 Bible, Gold Edition, explains everything there is to know about using Microsoft Access 97, which is quite a lot. Authors Cary N. Prague and Michael R. Irwin begin with the software installation process and work their way through all the features important to people who create and use relational databases with Access.

Since the greater part of the text is modeled around case studies (the case study files are on the companion CD-ROM), the process of learning about new features has a distinctly practical feel, even when the book gets into programming for Access with Visual Basic for Applications.

As the authors guide you through the capabilities of Access, they cover tables, forms, queries, reports, joins, and the various ways of giving the data a pleasing appearance. They also address external data sources, macro programming, and the specific procedures involved in making labels and form letters. If you're a small business owner who'd rather spend some time developing new skills than hiring a consultant, you can use this book to help you create custom database tools for your company. --David Wall
