"Total Access SourceBook offers code for almost any function you could imagine. I'm impressed with the quality of the functions included." Access/Office/VB Advisor Product Review

"Hosting over 550 fully tested Access procedures, Total Access SourceBook can really add power to your program - even for those who possess little VBA knowledge. . .
I've seen a fair number of code libraries over the years I've worked with Access, but this surely has to rank as one of the best. In fact, *the* best. Superbly commented with full descriptions and working cut-'n'-paste examples." WinPlanet Online Review

Source Code for 32 and 64-bit Versions of Office/VBA

Microsoft Office 2016, 2013 and 2010 are available in 32 and 64-bit versions. The source code library in Total Visual SourceBook 2013 is compatible with 32 and 64-bit Office/VBA. Unless explicitly specified, all of the source code can be inserted into your projects and will work for users running either the 32 or 64-bit version of Office/VBA. This makes it easy to support your users without worrying about which version of Access/Office they installed.

Note the Visual Basic 6 specific code is only 32-bit compatible since VB6 does not have a 64-bit version.

Integration with the Module Code Editor (IDE)

Total Visual SourceBook 2013 runs as a standalone program or as an add-in to your VBA/VB6 IDE. The add-in can only run within the 32-bit version of the IDE. If you are using the 64-bit version of Office, Total Visual SourceBook still works on its own, but not within your IDE. 

Runtime/Redistributable Version

Source code library material is redistributable royalty-free as long as it is contained in an application that is compiled and the Total Visual SourceBook library code is not redistributed in a readable form.

Licensing Information

Total Visual SourceBook is licensed on a per developer basis. Each developer who runs the program and uses the code must have a license. Read the License Agreement for details.
