What is this book about? Its power and short learning curve have made Access Microsoft’s leading consumer relational database management system for desktop applications. VBA lets you tap more of that power, responding to application level events, displaying forms and reports, manipulating toolbars, and much more. In this book, a crack team of programmers, including two Microsoft MVPs, shows you how to take control of Access 2003 or 2002 using VBA. You’ll learn to create and name variables, use DAO and ADO to manipulate data, handle errors correctly, create classes and use APIs, and more. An entire chapter is devoted to the changes in Access 2003, including new wizards and GUI features that previously required VBA code as well as new VBA features. You’ll receive a thorough education in system security, macro security, and the Access Developer Extensions (ADE). You will discover how to access data with VBA, execute and debug VBA code, and use VBA with Access objects. Finally, you will learn more about the relationship between Access and SQL Server, and how to use VBA in Access to control and enhance other Office applications. What does this book cover? Here are some of the things you'll discover in this book: How to take advantage of the built-in Access object library, using Access commands and executing them from any Access toolbar What you need to know to design your own classes, implement common APIs in your code, and use SQL to access data How to configure custom menus for your Access database applications Ways to transfer information between Access and Excel, Word, Outlook, and other Office programs How to show or hide entire sections of reports based on data entered on a form, or hide form fields based on database login information Object models you can use when writing VBA code in Access, and a list of common API functions to use in your code Who is this book for? This book is a comprehensive resource for Access users and VBA developers who want to increase the power of Access using VBA. In addition to experience with VBA, you should have read at least one tutorial covering VBA for Access.

Universal Design is the term used to describe the design of products and environments which can be used by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. It is not a euphemism for ‘designs for people with a disability’, but really is about designing to include all people, regardless of their age, ability, cultural background or status in life. However it remains the case that many designers and developers fail to understand the need for universal design and lack the skills needed to implement it. This book presents papers from the 3rd International Conference on Universal Design (UD 2016), held in York, UK, in August 2016. The theme of the conference was: learning from the past, designing for the future, and it aimed to bring together policymakers, practitioners and researchers interested in the different strands of universal design to exchange ideas and best practice, review some of the developments in universal design from the last 20 years, and formulate strategies for taking the concept of universal design forward into the future. The book is divided into two sections. Section 1: About Universal Design, and Section 2: Universal Design In Practice. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves design, from the built environment and tangible products to communication, services and systems.

Let Them Thrive provides parents with a practical understanding of how education works--and how it can work better--for their children. Every learner is as unique as his or her fingerprints. But one-size-fits-all schooling doesn't account for those variations. In this highly readable book (with unique cartoon illustrations), bestselling author, educator, and parent Katie Novak introduces the research-based framework Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Parents learn the origins of UDL in the learning sciences and in practice. (UDL is prominent in the federal Every Student Succeeds Act). They also learn strategies, tips, and tools to support their children's learning in school and in life. Let Them Thrive is an important new contribution to the growing literature on UDL, the first such book directly aimed at parents.
