Chapter 1 introduced the Access VBA programming environment and some general software development concepts. At this point, you are ready to learn the basics of writing and testing code using VBA. This chapter will cover:
Creating code modules
Creating and calling procedures
Using variables to store values
Controlling the flow of programs
Debugging and handling errors
This chapter will serve as a building block for the more advanced VBA concepts covered in later chapters. The techniques covered in this chapter and in most of the remaining chapters are used during the development and testing phases of the Systems Development Life Cycle, as defined in Chapter 1.
