Conventions in This Book

Throughout this book, we've used the following typographic conventions:


UPPERCASE

indicates a database name (e.g., LIBRARY) or the name of a table within a database (e.g., BOOKS). Keywords in SQL statements (e.g., SELECT) also appear in uppercase, as well as types of data (e.g., LONG), commands (e.g., CREATE VALUE), options (HAVING), etc.


Constant width

indicates a language construct such as a language statement, a constant, or an expression. Lines of code also appear in constant width, as do function and method prototypes in body text.


Constant width italic

indicates parameter and variable names in body text. In syntax statements or prototypes, constant width italic indicates replaceable parameters.


Italic

is used in normal text to introduce a new term and to indicate object names (e.g., QueryDef), the names of entity classes (e.g., the Books entity class), and VBA keywords.
