    VBA Syntax

    Next the syntax of VBA is discussed with variables, operators, procedures, functions, parameters, objects and modules.

    Control Flow

    Also covered is how to control the output of the code by means of if and else statements, select clauses and for loops. Arrays are then also addressed.


    Events are generated by user interaction such as pressing buttons or entering commands via the keyboard. These events are important for controlling Access and should be handled in event procedures.


    Additionally attention is paid to how you can give forms and reports more functionality with VBA Access.


    Finally the Data Access Object model (DAO) and its properties and functions are discussed. With DAO and VBA information can be retrieved from any Access database and the data can be sorted and filtered. With DAO it is also possible to connect to Access databases from Word and Excel with VBA.
