Smile Hi People

Hi people,

I picked up a book called ‘Database Design for Mere Mortals’ because it sounded cool, then started playing around with Microsoft Access. I gave myself a couple of projects, the first being a BMI calculator / weight convertor, it didn’t require any tables. Trying to find out more about VBA I flicked through a book called ‘Microsoft Access for Dummies’ but the section was too short to be useful. I eventually learned most of my coding from the Access help files in Microsoft Access 2003 as I didn’t have access to the internet at the time.

I moved onto making a database for a self-employed family member and a small community library. Looking back on them it’s embarrassing (Luckily no one else can see the code), but I learn with every project I take on, and you have to start somewhere.

Having access to the internet now is great; I couldn’t come across many books on VBA. This site seems to be really helpful so I thought I’d sign up
Greetings 

"As we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know. It is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones" Donald Rumsfeld

Re: Hi People

Welcome to AWF, ditto what Col said. My two favorite Access VBA books:

https://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Acc.../dp/0735659877
http://site.thehousewaresstore.com/o....Reference.pdf

Best of luck and again welcome.

Re: Hi People

Additionally, if books aren’t your thing, one of our members has provided a series of YouTube videos: “Better VBA”.

Perfect for those who want to learn and are not afraid to get under the hood. Here is the first one:

Re: Hi People

Thanks for the warm welcome people, and for posting those links NauticalGent.
I was reading the third book of 'The 100' series but it’s going to have to wait until I finish that pdf file you sent
I'm watching those YouTube videos now, it’s great to finally find a place where people discuss this type of stuff.

Re: Hi People

Hi and welcome to AWF.
I also like the Hernandez book.
Here is a link to a list of database related articles in various formats that you may find useful.
