Access Basics Tutorial

Access Basics by Crystal (Strive4Peace) is a 100 page document with screen shots, designed for those of you with a thirst to understand the fundamentals of Access (with programming in mind ... whether you realize it or not ). If you are not a programmer (yet ), you will become one — because that is where the deepest power of Access gets unleashed.

Thanks also to the following UA VIPs for their valuable feedback: Brent Spaulding (datAdrenaline), John Mishefske (mishej), John Viescas (JohnLVMVP), Truitt Bradley (truittb), and Tom Wickerath (TomWickerath) ... and thank you Gord.
