81 OleDbConnection
Calling the Close method on an OleDbConnection object that is not opened DOES NOT cause an error as the text states.

However, the OleDbConnection object does need to be instantiated which is what the reader failed to do.
96 Error in Text
In the subsection of Try Out in part number 5 it says:

"Right-click Access SQL..."
It should say:
"Right-click Access Queries"

because that is the project we are using in this section.

Instructions for page 103, step 4:

The reader should copy the data from a row in the grid, place the copied text in NotePad and then just copy the Guid.

ComboBox1.DataSource = objDataTable.Tables(0)
ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "ProjectName"

ComboBox1.DataSource = objDataTable
ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "ProjectName"
ComboBox1.ValueMember = "ProjectID"
209 Typo
The schema for the GroupProjects table:
GroupProjectsID (plural)
