If I get one book on VBA and Access...

I've got a couple of worthwhile books on Access 2003, and they've helped a lot. There's bits and bobs about Visual Basic in all of them, but it'd definitely be useful to have one book on VBA that'd help me get the most out of Access and Excel.

I've done some programming with VBA, but mostly it's been taking bits from macros in books and on websites and adapting them to my needs, i.e. I have enough of an understanding of the structures to be able to adapt a template, but without such a template I'd find it pretty difficult to write code. (I used to write programmes in BASIC on my C-64 and later I'd use QBasic, but I haven't done any major programming since.)

If you had to recommend one book, which one would it be? I've checked Amazon reviews and other websites, but since people's wants and needs differ so much I thought I'd ask the experts here. :)

Great, thanks. I'd seen the first one on Amazon, but since the reviews were a bit mixed I wasn't sure. However, you've helped me a number of times now and I trust your judgment. :)
