9780764559044: Expert One-on-One Microsoft Access Application Development

What is this book about?

If you are developing databases for your own use, the process need not be complicated. But when you build databases for clients, many of whom may not be familiar with Access or comfortable with databases in general, you have a lot more work to do. Expert One-on-One Microsoft Access Application Development makes that process easier.

In these pages, you discover how to set up tables and relationships to ensure that the database is properly normalized. Then you write VBA code to create the connective tissue that turns a bunch of tables, queries, forms, and reports into a complete and coherent application. You also find out about the important but often inadequately documented area of Automation code, which is used to communicate with other Office applications.

Over years of working with Access, the author has created some add-ins to save time when developing applications. She shows you how to use them to create a main menu for an application, automatically apply a naming convention to database objects, and ensure a consistent and professional appearance of the application’s forms.

This book helps you write VBA code that unites database components into an application that works.

What does this book cover?

Here's what you'll discover in this book:

  • How to build integrated Access-based applications that support multiple clients and databases
  • Tips for streamlining application creation
  • Maintenance required throughout an application’s life cycle, including migrating data from legacy systems and upgrading Office
  • How to use Automation code to exchange data among Office components and even some non-Office programs
  • Ways to avoid glitches when building Access applications that work with Excel, Word, and Outlook
