Thanks to Jim Sturms, Monte Slichter, Richard Dickenson, all the other members of Microsoft Corporation's Access product support and product management staff, and members of the Access Insiders group. Their contributions were a great help in the writing of this book.

Al Valvano, title manager, and Jeff Riley, acquisitions editor, made sure that I didn't fall too far behind the manuscript submission schedule. Susan Dunn, production editor, worked hard to make sure everything got to its final destination on time. Technical editing was done by Jim O'Connor, Mark Robinson, Tim Schubach, and Sara Strock; their contributions to this book are gratefully acknowledged. The responsibility for any errors or omissions, however, rests solely on my shoulders.
