I dedicate my work, passion, and energies to my brother. Kirk is an inspiration, mentor, and good friend, and he leads by example in his unstinting support of the Spinal Cord Society's research to cure paralysis. And to my Mom and Papa and my Dad, who encourage me, laugh with me, and share in my joys, struggles, and jubilations as I take on extraordinary challenges such as climbing Mt. Rainier, riding 220 miles on a bike, and even writing this book.
And I dedicate this book to all the people who are just learning about Access and about VBA. Access 2007 has some phenomenal new features that empower users and give Access a more universal appeal. I am privileged to help you on your journey.
To my Mom, for her love and encouragement over the years and for instilling in me the passion to find the things I enjoy. To Karen and Chris, for reminding me where I come from. And in loving memory of my dad Marvin, who continues to drive me in my search for meaning.
To my wife Jamie, for all the love and support you have given me. To my family: Mom, Dad, Cara, Sean, Ariana, and Army, for the encouragement, knowledge, and strength you have given me. My deepest gratitude does not even begin to define my love and appreciation for each of you.
To my wife Lori. Our work and interests are often so different, but I couldn't ask for a better partner.
