Below are some titles on my bookshelf that I highly recommend.
Microsoft Access 2000
Balter's Mastering Access 97 Development
had the opportunity to meet Ms. Balter at an Advisor DevCon
seminar in Santa Barbara CA in April of 1999. Her lectures on Access were
extremely informative. She is a definite guru and I recommend all her books.
Balter's Mastering Microsoft Access 2000 Development (Sam's Professional Series)
Teach Yourself Access 97 in 21 Days (Teach Yourself...)
"Teach Yourself" series is a great tool for learning the basics and more
about Access. My first book on Access back in 1994, "Teach Yourself Access
2.0 in 14 Days" gave me a solid foundation in applications development.
Teach Yourself Microsoft Access 2000 in 21 Days
Microsoft Access 97
by Microsoft Press, this book will benefit the beginner as well as advanced
Access 97 Developer's Handbook (Solution Developer Series)
this only if you are already an advanced user or developer. This is a great
resource for the serious Access programmer. There are lots of VBA examples and
application building exercises.
Sam's Teach Yourself Microsoft Sql Server 7.0 in 21 Days (Teach Yourself in 21
you are an Access Developer who plans to upsize to SQL Server 7.0 or use it as a
back-end to an Access application, than this is a must read. If you are not
currently running SQL Server 7.0, I recommend downloading the evaluation
version from Microsoft and using it with the exercises in the book.
