MOM 2003 Database
Prior to writing Microsoft Access 2003 for All-In-One Reference Dummies, we developed a relatively simple order-entry database named MOM 2003 (for Mail Order Manager 2003) to use as an example throughout much of the book. Even though we don't refer to MOM 2003 very often in the book, many (but not all) of the sample tables, forms, reports and other objects actually come from that database.

From here, you can download two different versions of MOM 2003. The Sample Data version includes some hypothetical customers, vendors, products, and orders to play around with. The "clean" version contains all the same objects, but with no phony data. Use the clean version if you'd prefer to add your own real, or fake, data.

First a quick disclaimer. MOM 2003 is not a commercial software product and has not been tested extensively in the real world. It's simply a sample database that illustrates various ways of doing things in Microsoft Access 2003. As such, there is no official technical support (though you can always write us and ask us questions). And most importantly, there are no guarantees or warranties. It's strictly an as-is example for teaching and learning. If you plan to use it in an actual business, you do so at your own risk.

You can download either version, or both, by clicking the links. The files are stored in ZIP archives for easier downloading. If your computer can't open ZIP archives, try downloading the free trial of WinZip.

For more information, including instructions on using these files, you can visit the author's website.

Custom VBA Functions
As promised, we've also included copies of many of the custom VBA functions described in Book 8 of Microsoft Access 2003 All-In-One Reference for Dummies. You can download Custom Functions.mdb, which contains all of the custom functions described in the book. You can then import any functions you wish into any database you create on your own.

The files is stored in a ZIP archive for easier downloading. If your computer can't open ZIP archives, try downloading the free trial of WinZip.
