As we work through this book, we will build up a sample database built around a fictitious wholesale supplier of ice cream.
The CD-ROM that accompanies this book contains the sample databases used in the book. The CodeDatabases/Begin folder contains the IceCream.mdb database you should start with, and develop as you work through the chapters. When you reach the end of the book, and implement all the functionality we cover, you should end up with the IceCreamComplete.mdb in the CodeDatabases/Complete folder.
The CD also contains some freeware (which we'll mention later in the book) and Microsoft Data Access Components v2.7 (including ADO 2.7). You can download this from www.microsoft.com , but Microsoft kindly gave us permission to include the install file on the CD so that you could avoid lengthy download times.
