    Hi Folks:-
    I'm an IT professional Systems Administrator for a large gov agency -
    new to Access 2010. Under pressure, I've got a database populated from
    External Data replies. But I need a fundamental knowledge before I
    get in too deep just learning how to do the next thing. I have some
    (VC++) programming experience, along with deep OS (MS/Linux) exposure.

    Any suggestions for a beginne Access 2010 ebook or any other ideas?

    Thanks!!!! ---> Mike

  2. I like, and hear good reports from others, about "Access 2010 -- Inside Out"
    by John Viescas and Jeff Conrad, published by Microsoft Press. The book
    shown in my SIG below concentrates on data structure for a number of
    business functions. You don't "program a solution" as you do in C, C++. or
    C# -- you create your data structure, create forms and reports, and sprinkle
    in some code that executes in response to defined events.

    I haven't looked over a copy in years, but a good introductory book in
    previous versions, rather small, was "Microsft Access - Step by Step". If
    you see one of those in your bookstore (or find it at an online bookseller),
    it might be worth the time you'd spend going through it.

    You'll find an excellent treatment of the subject in Designing Effective
    Database Systems, Rebecca M. Riordan, published by Addison-Wesley in their
    Microsoft Technology Series.

    There's a good (but far from "exhaustive") list of useful websites at

    Crystal Long has posted quite a few very good tutorials on YouTube.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I was looking at the books you mentioned -including your's- and
    probably will get them al -l budget permitting.

    I really appreciate your help.

  4. You are most welcome. I participate here to try to be of help -- a lot of
    people who helped me over the years only asked that I return the favor to
    someone else when I was able.
