Access 2003 In Easy Steps is a book for the complete novice. Unlike other books on the market, it recognizes that in order to become a competent Access user you need to have full understanding of the basics: Databases, Tables, Queries, Forms and Reports, before hoping to harness some of its more powerful features. Rather than just being a reference, a glorified version of the online help already packaged with the product, Access 2003 In Easy Steps develops your understanding. It doesn't stop there. This book also outlines some of the more complex and powerful features of Access 2003 and paves the way for further reading and experimentation. Importantly, it tells you why it might be worth taking the time and trouble to learn these.
