VBA - Visual Basic for Applications
Access VBA was developed as a sub set of Microsoft Visual Basic and is now used in the Microsoft Office applications, MS Access, MS Excel, MS Word, and MS Outlook. VBA is a very powerful language used by professional Access developers to automate processing in database applications. VBA is preferred over macors as the method for robust database application development in MS Access.
Microsoft Access 2000
MS Access 2000 is still being used by many companies. This version of Access displayed many new features, including a better graphical user interface and support for data Access pages. The Access 2000 database toolbar improves the way users can create and mangae database objects. Access 2000 now supports two data Access models: the Data Access Objects (DAO) that is native to MS Access and the new ActiveX Data Objects (ADO). DAO uses the built in Microsoft Jet database engine for data Access and runs very rapidly. Access 2000 now supports ADO for Jet database manipulation, although it may run a bit more slowly.
Microsoft Access Automation
Save time and money by using MS Access automation features. Use built-in macro functionality to eliminate repetitious tasks. Let macro automation take over the complex processe, to avoid mistakes. Macro development is worth the effort.
