SQL: Access to SQL Server is more than just a comprehensive reference tool for Access developers. You'll also find efficient SQL solutions for common Access problems and tasks, as well as helpful hints and warnings about what to avoid. Learning Jet SQL is an important step from just using Access to developing with Access. In addition to learning Jet SQL, readers will embark on a journey into the world of SQL Server 2000. The journey starts when you learn how to install SQL Server and ends with an introduction to XML and ASP. Along the way, using Access Data Projects, you'll see features new to SQL Server 2000, including functions that return tables, instead of triggers and gotchas with upsizing. The authors highlight not only the enormous opportunities awaiting you as an Access developer, but also the potential challenges and pitfalls you may face as you move from Access to SQL Server 2000.
