I don't know why other reviewers don't like the book. Actually, I bought all three editions of the book, from VB 4 to VB 6. The book covered most important contents for building VB DB apps, with a lot of useful warnings and tips. Though I have done some VB DB programming before, I found useful info in every chapter which clarifies some issues or teaches some tricks. Give one example, I have tried to use MaskedEdit as a bound control but encountered abnormality when updating records. I spent several hours trying to bypass the error with coding without any luck. Later I happened to find (in this book) that all I need to do is to set the "PromptInclude" property to False. That tip alone already worths the price to me.
Aside from the goodies, I found the VisData chapter not so interesting. That's not quite related to programming. Also I'd like to see a chapter talking about VB/VBA DB programming, differences and relations.

This book is sloppy, buggy, and a lot of the code doesn't work, but it can be worth the effort, especially, when it's necessary to port an MS Access application to VB5.
The included CD ROM has a lot of useful code which either works or I was able to fix and get working. As an Access developer for many years, I've found it very difficult to come up with good reasons for porting applications to VB . . . but, apparently there are . . . which is why I plowed through this book that I strongly recommend (???) with lots of reservations. The stuff is useful!
Sams should try and figure out how to do "right" by its customers as the book really is a mess. What they've produced here is not much more than a first draft!
My advice is to use a pencil to mark all the mistakes.

Both the authors and Sams Publishing have come up with a unique approach to teach programming. Sprinkle the code with bugs and omissions and have the reader fix it. Not only is the text code bad, but also the accompanying CD-ROM. I have to admit that after struggling to get the examples to run, I did learn a great deal and am now very confortable with Microsoft's on-line documentation. The pity is the approach used by the authors is example centric with little explanation as to the details of what was written. The Editors at Sams Publishing should be ashamed to let this book out. The magazine, Visual Basic Programmer's Journal, Letters to the Editor section recently discussed the reasons for poor quality technical books. They must have gotten an advance copy of this one.

I just finished Day 5 after spending two entire days on it. Many, many errors were present. A few of which I am still not sure are resolved. The examples in the book are riddled with errors. The only way to be sure is to check the code on the CD. Even then there is no certainty it will work as it should. So far it has been a great tool for learning. Fixing all the mistakes has definitely made me more aware of Visual Basic itself. I managed to clip through "Teach Yourself Visual Basic 5 in 21 Days" by Nathan and Ori Gurewich. I found it to be more error free. I wish I could only say the same for this one. More care needs to be taken when editors rush through these books on the newer software. This one was obviously glossed over very poorly.

This book says that it will teach you SQL for VB programming. IT DOES NOT! It teaches you SQL.. Not what they promissed. Also, it teaches you SQL on Visdata, this cheasy sql program that they give you. The section it gives on Crystal Reports was also nothing to brag about. The Microsoft On-Line help section had more. Plus the CD I had was wrong. Stiff that the book says it should have, it didn't. It figures. Sams Publishing made another flop. I've should have learned after the first 2 books I bought froms Sams Publishing. They are always the first to have a book on a subject, but it's always incomplete... I was majorly disgusted with this book. Waste of time, money, and last but not least, more time. I should rate it a 1, but I want this seen.

This is the second book I've bought on VB, the first one being an introductory book on everything I need to know about the basics of VB. But since I wanted to focus on database programming, I bought this book and read through it, confused most of the time. Running the sample codes didn't help either. I thought it was only my inexperience with the language that is causing the trouble, thank goodness I found that the other more experienced readers of the book also had similar experiences. I tried swallowing the text up until Chapter 10 and then I finally gave up. If you ask me how I would describe the writing and organization of this book, frustrating would come to mind. I finally gave up and bought another book!

When I read a book, I capture grammatical errors to send to the editors for the 'next edition'. I collected quite a few early on and decided to send what I had collected so far.
The email addresses listed as publisher contacts for this book came back as 'unknown'. I began to wonder: Did they have so many complaint emails they canceled the email accounts?
I pushed on through the book to discover coding errors in the examples as well.
I give this book a 'thumbs down' and will avoid buying SAMS publishing books in the future.
(If I had known about Amazon's rating system at the time I purchased the book, I would have avoided this loss of good $)

Database programming is the bread and butter of most VB programmers. And this book will sort of help improve the art. I say "sort of" since it forces the reader to practice debugging. The errors abound - from dated nomenclature and concepts to out right bad (and broken) code. On the positive side, I liked reading the authors' many simple and concise explanations of several tough topics, like the Jet DB and SQL a la VB5. Overall, I think the book is useful, albeit expensive given the poor techincal quality.

This book was very frustrating. Just when you think you have written all the code it asked you to, as soon as you run it, it blows up. Well at least I learned to debug from this book. Also , I dont like the way they teach using tools they have included with the book, these are are not tools one would use in the real world. And by the way , dont bother calling or e-mailing there tech support about the errors, they never got back to me. I am still looking for the right book to teach me databse programming.
