Default Beginning Visual Basic 2010 and Microsoft Access

Hello All,

I am new to VBA and Microsoft access. I just purchased the Beginning Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 book however skimming through the book it is referencing Visual Studio.

Can I use this same book to do Visual Basics with Microsoft Access 2010

Thank you for your assistance

No, I don't think so. If I am not mistaken, Access uses VBA, not VB.NET. Additionally, the tools, logic and programming environments are completely different.

Imar is correct, this book will not offer you help for Access programming. Bryan

Get a book in the MS Office area like these from WROX. The first book below is for beginner to intermediate and would be a good choice. I listed 3 others as well.

Microsoft Access 2010 24-Hour Trainer

Accesss 2010 Programmer's Reference

Expert Access 2007 Programming

Access 2007 VBA Programmer's Reference
