Access databases, its time to collect your badge and keep things more under control
As I mentioned last month, I would pick my way through my book from 2003 and find content that is still valid to Microsoft Access users today. This week is the chapter on Good Programming Practices.
In a couple of new extractions from my 2003 book, will find that AutoExec macros are a way of managing what happens in your database when it starts up and you will get a few insights into Error handling, a skill that separates the sheriffs from the cowboys.
I have been programming and supporting Microsoft Access databases since 1995. In 2007 I received the Access MVP award from Microsoft because I waste too much time writing newsletters and blogs. Why not sign up for one of my newsletters at http://www.vb123.com.au and look for newsletter on the left.
