Access Developers Handbook

Hey group,

I've been working as an access developer as part of my college co-op. I
am interested in learning more about Access, and I repeatedly see in
this newsgroup, "Read Access XXX Developer's Handbook" and that's what
I've decided to do.

What I'd like to know is, which version of the book should I get. I am
working in Access 2000, but I don't want to limit myself to that, I
would like a wider range of knowledge so I can easily move between
Access versions (when I change jobs or if my current employer
upgrades).

If I go with, say, Access 2003 Handbook, will I be missing out on
features of Access 2000, or does each successive version (both book and
access version) simply build on the last, so if I get the most recent
book I'd have a good understanding on how to use all Accesses.

Thanks,

Thomas

There is no 2003 version of this book. I recommend that you get the 2002
version; it will give you full information about that version, and will
contrast what's new in 2002 compared to 2000.

The CD that comes with ADH sometimes contains previous
versions of chapters.

Can anyone recommend a book on Access please? In the old days I used to buy the GLR Developer's Handbook which I must say I did find useful when I could understand what they were talking about.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
