I am coming out of retirement to help a non profit to create a simple database for their non-profit temple.  While I have a template all ready, but i may have to customise some of the code especially in VB to automate things, etc.  But I am out of touch with the codes, is there any manual out there for Access 2007 specific so that I could refer to whenever I am stuck, instead of posting the question in EE for every trival Q.  Thank u.

No real "manual" any more.

Everything has moved to on-line help.  When your in the VBA editor, you can do F1 (Help) to get VBA specific help.

The computer book industry has died off as well, but if you head to a good book store, you will find on the shelf a few books on Access remain.

Well, you may get a variety of recommendations, here's my ten cents worth...

I still swear by my Sybex boxset containing Access 2002 Developer's Handbook (Desktop) and Access 2002 Developer's Handbook (Enterprise).  Written by Litwin, Getz and Gunderloy, arguably three of the most respected authors/experts in this field.

Yes, it is 2002 not 2007, and there have been a number of changes between 2002-2003-2007, but for a lot of questions, I still go back to this book.  The reviews on Amazon are similarly effusive about this book:  Access 2002 Developer's Handbook

That's just my opinion, of course!!
