Am about 180 pages in and I'm getting a lot of use out of this
book. Liked programming in VB for Dummies but this book doesn't skip any steps explaining the code so you're not wondering how they got from A to F.
Many useful ideas, pieces of code.
Some typos. CD helpful

Best book on VBA i've ever had the misfortune of reading. Not the most pleasant of subjects, but this book did a masterful job of presenting ideas, structures and syntax in a clear, easy-to-read format. I am now programming like an ox thanks to this book. Avoid the horrible Susan Novalis Access VBA Handbook and get this one instead. Full of sample code, and the CD has many apps you can steal and modify to suit your needs. Bravo, Wrox.

Detailed examples, clear progression, lucid explanations.
I felt this book was written for me. I received it, turned to chapter 8, and there in front of me was a solution I had been searching for weeks. My relational database is now easily searchable for those inept at constructing queries. Yay!
The book's strongest feature is the many detailed examples that are clearly explained and progess in a logical order. The book also serves as a useful refresher for basic object-oriented concepts, and contains a CD with all of the code.
If you're new to SQL or wonder what "events" are, look for a simpler book. This book is definitely for those who understand basic SQL and relational database design, have designed customized forms/queries/reports, and want to take their Microsoft Access database to the next level.
