Where to find "the membership tracking application" sample database. I just bought John Viescs newer book "Microsoft Access 2010 Inside Out" but this sample is not included on the cd. It was a part of John Viescas "Building Microsoft® Access Applications" book's cd.
Microsoft Access 2010 Inside Out does not include the membership tracking application sample database that you mention. The other book, Building Microsoft® Access Applications, is a different book that was published in 2005.
Microsoft Access 2010 Inside Out only includes examples of the following four databases:
*Back Office Software System Restaurant Management Application (BOSS.accdb). This application is a hybrid Access application designed for use in both client and web. It demonstrates how a restaurant might manage food orders, maintain employee records, and create weekly work schedules. This application can be published to a server running SharePoint 2010 and Access Services and then used within a web browser. You’ll also find BOSSDataCopy.accdb and BOSSDataCopy2.accdb files that contain many of the query, form, and report examples.
*Conrad Systems Contacts (Contacts.accdb and ContactsData.accdb). This application is both a contacts management and order entry database—two samples for the price of one! This sample database demonstrates how to build a client/server application using only desktop tools as well as how to “upsize” an application to create an Access project and related SQL Server tables, views, stored procedures, and functions. You’ll also find a ContactsDataCopy.accdb file that contains additional query, form, and report examples.
*Housing Reservations (Housing.accdb). This application demonstrates how a company housing department might track and manage reservations in company-owned housing facilities for out-of-town employees and guests. You’ll also find HousingDataCopy.accdb and HousingDataCopy2.accdb files that contain many of the query, form, and report examples.
*Wedding List (WeddingMC.accdb and WeddingList.accdb). This application is an example of a simple database that you might build for your personal use. It has a single main table where you can track the names and addresses of invitees, whether they’ve said that they will attend, the description of any gift they sent, and whether a thank you note has been sent. Although you might be tempted to store such a simple list in an Excel spreadsheet or a Word document, this application demonstrates how storing the information in Access makes it easy to search and sort the data and produce reports. The WeddingMC database is automated entirely using macros, and the WeddingList database is the same application automated with Visual Basic.
The CD that accompanies the book includes only 32-bit versions of the sample databases. However, you can also download newer 64-bit versions of the sample databases from the book's catalog page at http://examples.oreilly.com/978073562....
If you are looking for Building Microsoft® Access Applications or the membership tracking application sample database, please contact Customer Support.
Thank you very much for your reply.
The reason I've asked the question here is; when searching the web many hits pointing to the book "Building Microsoft® Access Applications" and to go to O'Reily's web site and click the link of the companion cd.
Obviously the link has been removed.
I am on my retirement, living in Thailand, now learning Access, trying to develop a membership database for our expats club. The sample membership database by J Viescas has elements I would like to learn.
There is one old "Membership" on Microsoft web, similar but not what I need.
I'll keep searching.
Thank you again.
I understand you want a copy of the membership database. Do you want a copy of Building Microsoft® Access Applications, which includes the CD with the membership database? It's the only way the database is available. Let me see if I can get you a copy.
Are you running MS Access 2010 or an earlier version? Are you running Windows 7?
Dear Ken, Thank you so much.
I will send my data immediately, just not sure if this is a safe place to do it here?
Is our conversation private enough or visible to the public?

If you could send me email from your email address I will respond immediately, otherwise I do it here if you say so..
