    What's a good book for VBA? (W2KSP2 & A2K)

    Access Forum, Books Forum or VBA Forum??

    Can anyone recommend a good VBA for Access Applications book, preferably readily available in the UK? This is for one of my colleagues who has an intermediate understanding of VBA but is just looking for something to take him further at his own speed.

    Recommendations gratefully received. Thanks.

    I would highly recommend the Access 2000 and VB Language : Developer's Set by Paul Litwin, Mike Gunderloy, Ken Getz

    You can find more info at their web site

    I don't know how available it is in the UK, but I'd be LOST without mine. I have the A97 version and the A2K Version. If I ever move to A2002, then I'll probably get the 2002 version.

    Yep. I guess I should have been a bit clearer.

    The Access 2000 and VB Language : Developer's Set includes 3 books.

    From http://wwwdevelopershandbook.com

    This three-volume set includes both of the Access 2000 Developer's Handbook (Volume I and Volume II), along with the Visual Basic Language Developer's Handbook. If you're a serious Access 2000 developer, this is the set you need. It includes, at a reduced price, all the best documentation available for this rich and complex product

    One last thing about the Access Developer's Handbook.

    Litwin, Getz and Gunderloy have been using Access since BEFORE V1 was released!!

    Read their stories about tAccess at http://www.microsoft.com/office/acce...ars/heroes.asp
