    One Amazon.com reader says...

    "This book is exactly what it proports to be. It covers all the Access versions being used in the development world - 97 to 2003. It does not spend half to 2/3 of the book on basic Access tables, querries, reports or vb code that developers already know, but from the first page to the last covers security and protection. A must have for any Access developer or power user."
