If you decide to download the code, you're interested in the chapter 11 folder. It contains two unbound Access front-ends to the SQL Server version of Northwind. One app is a .mdb which executes stored procedures using pass-through queries and caches the data in local Jet tables; the other is an .adp which caches local data in XML files on your file system in the directory where the app is sotred. There is also a script with the download that you need to run to create the stored procedures. There are quite a few. Both apps are reasonably complete: login screens, search functionality, ability to fetch a limited number of records, all your standard DML functions, input validation, etc...
