Chapter 6. Managing Data

Chapter 6. Managing Data

The point of a database program is to manage data. Although Access provides most of the tools you'll need, there are many tasks for which you have to roll your own solution. This chapter concentrates on working with data in ways that traditional database operations don't support. You'll learn how to search for records phonetically, back up your database objects, perform lightning-fast finds on linked tables, save housekeeping information, and more. All the examples in this chapter use some form of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code, but don't worry—they are all clearly explained, and "testbed" applications are supplied to show you how each technique works. We present more tips for working with data in Chapter 14, focusing on techniques you can use when your data is stored in SQL Server, rather than in an Access Jet database (an .MDB or .MDE file).
