Default Beginning Access 2002 VBA Chapter 3

Two Puzzles:
First, on page 101 of Chapter 3, Creating Code; instruction #1 of the "Try it Out" section says to "Open your working database (IceCream03.mdb)" but no such database exists on the CD and the book has not had me create one before mentioning it in this instruction.

Second, on page 107 of Chapter 3, Creating Code; the authors show sample code for the function, "MakeIceCream." Right before the "End Function" statement in the sample code, they say "rest of code goes here." I would appreciate it if they would email me that code, asap as it is not at all clear to me what code they are referring to. Not having it has left a learning gap.

Many Thanks.

As an aside, the last line on pg 105 "Try it Out"--Arguments--reads "Debug.Print "Making ice cream" as opposed to "Make ice cream."

The answer to the first question. There is no download or CD with a Db named after each Chapter, however, the code for all of these can easily be found in the Modules of the completed database on the CD provided (well, thats where i found mine).
Second, I think this is supposed to be hypothetical the code that codes there, not too sure. Anyway, on the completed Db there is no code for that part so your not missing anything.
First time with VBA? Same here, and just trying to get to grips with it....slowly but surely.

The missing code icecream3.mbd is NOT in the link provided. The link refers to a access2000 format.

If you are lazy enougth you can easily take out those exercise of you book. And you claim so much at the book's introduction ... shame ..
