Codekabinett - Access, VBA & Co.

Welcome to the Codekabinett-Website!

On this site you’ll find a growing collection of articles about Access, VBA and SQL programming. There are articles for beginners as well as programming experts available here.

My current focus is on providing guidance on how to write VBA code that does not just get the job done, but is also readable, robust and maintainable. This particular sub-topic is mainly covered by the Better VBA video series.

Of course I try my best to provide working, error free explanations, samples and download. Still, sometimes an error or bug slips the net. I love to get corrections and suggestions for improvement anytime. If you have any, just email me.

Thank you for visiting.
