Microsoft Access 2010 Programming By Example

Mixed media product
With more than 275 applied examples and 10 projects, Access users can quickly build database solutions with ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), perform database tasks with Jet/Access Structured Query Language (SQL), and export/import Access data to and from XML both manually and programmatically. The book, which covers the latest release of Access and earlier versions, is divided into five parts: an introduction to VBA programming, manipulating databases with ADO, using DDL, event programming, and using ASP and XML. The text will show you how to write and debug your programming code with the Visual Basic Editor; understand and use common VBA programming structures such as conditions, loops, arrays, and collections; code a 'message box' and reprogram characteristics of a database; and, query and manipulate your database from a Web browser with Active Server Pages (ASP) and many more practical techniques. There are thirty-two chapters loaded with illustrated hands-on projects and exercises that demonstrate programming concepts. Each exercise/project tells you exactly where to enter code and how to debug it and then run it. This title includes a comprehensive CD-ROM with tips, shortcuts, and tutorials. It is updated for Access 2010 and based on the bestselling editions from previous versions. Store data for further manipulation in variables, arrays, and collections, write simple and complex VBA programming routines and functions. Create custom database forms, reports, and details on controlling and customizing the Ribbon. Use DAO and ADO methods to access and manipulate database records (insert, update, and delete data via code), work with Access database files in.MDB and.ACCDB formats. Use external data sources with Access (SQL Server, flat files, Excel, Word, and XML) and generate dynamic XML and ASP documents from any Access database and display data on the Web.
