Written by a working writer and database designer with the man who co-wrote Access itself, this book successfully combines a mastery of its subject with a lucid, first-person writing style unusual--to say the least--in books on databases. The result is a readable book about an application type notorious for its dullness.
The authors assume a familiarity with Windows and the Office environment, but start with firing up Access 2000 for the first time. They assume no previous knowledge of database theory or practice. Accessible Access 2000 isn't just a book for beginners though, it's for those who want to use Access 2000 for real-world applications. To achieve this, the authors cover the features you need in depth while merely mentioning those you don't. In practice, a decade of creeping "featuritus" means you don't need most of them. The devil, though, is in the detail. This is where Accessible Access 2000 really scores. For example, on page 111 they discuss the difference between a null field and a zero length string. Null fields are ignored by Access 2000, so taking an average value when values are only entered for 20 of 30 records works correctly with null fields but not with zero length fields. Practical detail like this can save you hours of anguish. In fact, even if you don't actually have a use for databases, the style encourages enthusiasm. Who'd have thought closure--which enables you to build forms which take their input from an answer table--could be interesting?
The authors take you as far as making use of multiple tables. You'll learn how to join multiple tables, query them and produce forms to display their contents. You'll even enjoy learning it. Accessible Access 2000 is easily the most accessible (pun intended) book on Access available. --Steve Patient
