    Smile Unanswered: What is your Favorite Access Book?

    I was just wondering what book or books people like to reference when building projects in Access. I have a couple, but they are outdated and do not cover more complicated VBA and Query design.

    I have looked at many books at Amazon and other online book stores, but it does not seem that any of them get better reviews than any other making it hard to choose a good book on Access for the intermediate / advanced user.

    I'm not saying these are better than any others, they just happen to be what I have.

    Microsoft Office Access 2007 Inside Out

    Access 2007 VBA Programmer's Reference
    If I had any wisdom to impart, I would do so here.

    Have not tried MS Office Access 2007 Inside out, but I just bought Access 2007 VBA Programmer's Reference and so far it seems to be pretty robust.

    for me its
    Access Developers Handbook for the version of Access you use

    Access X Desktop Developer's Handbook Professional Results: Amazon.co.uk: Paul Litwin, Ken Getz: Books
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    These all seem like great books.

    I looked at Amazon for Access Developers Handbook for 2007, but it appears that Sybex has not published anything for Access since 2002.

    Thanks for all the great ideas. I also hope this thread will help some of the new members to the forum.

    I have an old Access 2000 Developer's Handbook and I still use it as a reference. I do need to update myself but I like it. Our office still uses Access 2002 so it still functions for me.
