Just my 2 cents (or shillings, whatever): newsgroups are most useful
for very specific questions on a db/programming task; web sites may
have useful code for routines or entire projects. But if you're a
beginner wanted to learn basic concepts and terminology, a good ol' book
is your best bet. Don't know what's available in your local library or
bookstore; college bookstores here in the States may have a better
selection, and some computer stores have good book sections.
Since this is a VB group, the books I use most may be a step ahead of
you (not dissin ya, mate - they focus on VB, assuming the reader already
knows db terms/concepts). I'd check for books about Access from these
publishers: Sams, Wrox, or Que - all the books I've ever gotten from
these companies have been useful to me.
It's a world of fun - enjoy!
