    thx tgm,

    I always get the same page (http://www.wrox.com/default.asp)
    But I did found some books on that site. Have you used some of them. Because I'm looking for some advice with personal expertise (I hope you know what I mean here). I bought a book on Access 2000 but it isn't that good I think. And I don't want to waste my money on an other bad book

    I used (and own) "Beginning Access 97 VBA" for my database class. There are a few changes in Access 2000 (which is what I used for my project) but the book helped out just fine.
    VBA is merely a subset of Visual Basic for a particular application, so if you know Visual Basic you will be fine. I also picked up the "Visual Basic 6 Programmer's Reference."
    It's really pretty easy and once you get started I'm sure it won't be a problem. Plus, Access has a great deal of helping features which you can use to make life easier.

    Go to the book store and browse through it, see what you think. I'd probably go with the 2000 version since that's what you'll be using. I believe it was written by the same authors. My professor always recommended books by Wrox Press.
