    Outstanding Reference for Access 2013, both Web Apps and Desktop Databases., April 13, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Microsoft Access 2013 Inside Out (Paperback)
    Preface:
    I preordered and paid for this book months in advance without hesitation. I have met Jeff Conrad several times while attending the Microsoft Global MVP Summits in Redmond WA. Well aware Jeff’s passion for Microsoft Access and more recently Access Web Apps (new in Access 2013), I suspected this book would be outstanding in every context and that is exactly the case.

    Side Note For Clarification:
    In Access 2013, the distinction is between the ‘desktop side’ and the ‘web app side’. In Access 2010, it was ‘desktop side’ and ‘web database side’. In Access 2007 well, never mind. And prior to Access 2007, there was only the desktop side.

    About The Book:
    If you are looking for a comprehensive reference on Access 2013 Web Apps, this is the book for you. The subjects of design, deployment, configuration and maintenance, including Sharepoint administration and Access Services related to Access Web apps … are all covered in excruciating detail. Screenshots, step by step examples, tips and in-depth content are presented throughout the book.

    And, if you are totally new to Microsoft Access in general, the ‘desktop’ side of Access 2013 is covered in an equally elegant manner as well. I’ve been developing with Microsoft Access 24x7x365 since v1.0 – 1992, so my main interest with regard to this book is Access 2013 Web Apps. However, I have discovered several very cool ‘tips’ for desktop databases as well.

    But wait … there’s more. A ton of sample files, both for Desktop Databases and Web Apps are available for download. I’m currently developing several Web Apps and find myself continually referring to subjects in this book. In fact, without this book, navigating your way through the design aspects of Web Apps would be a daunting task.

    Conclusion:
    Highly recommended. Get this book and you will be Good To Go toward your journey into Access Desktop Databases and Access 2013 Web Apps.

    The printed book is all about web apps. Probably okay, if that is how you’ll use Access. But if you want to create a desktop database file, forget using this book. The chapters that you’d want are in one humongous pdf file that you’ll need to download. And, oh by the way, there is no index for that info. Worthless.

    This review is from: Microsoft Access 2013 Inside Out (Paperback)
    If you are looking to go beyond the basics and learn more about how to develop sophisticated database apps, then this book offered by O’Reilly Media, will save you time with troubleshooting tips and helpful workarounds. Written by Jeff Conrad; a software test engineer with the Access development team and maintains a Microsoft website full of Access resources and expert advice.

    The first section covers the gamut related to developing Access Services web apps and using apps in your web browser. With accompanying screen shots you will learn how to design tables, create data macros, how to work with queries and views, and automate the app using macros. Seasoned Access database developers will need to brace themselves as they will have to adjust to the new app development environment since it has been significantly revamped.

    You will undoubtedly appreciate the information provided on the use of Microsoft SkyDrive along with the ins and outs of the Office App Marketplace and the SharePoint Store.

    The second section will help you create a desktop database in an environment which will be much more familiar to previous Access developers. You will discover the interface, how to design tables and modify their design.

    The information is clear and concise and you will have no trouble following the instructions as there are many screen shots to help you familiarize yourself with your new work environment. Lastly, you will find the notes and tips found throughout to be invaluable and a reflection of Jeff’s knowledge and experience.
