Programming language similar to VBA

I like using VBA but demand for this in UK is low and doesn't pay much either. Interested to hear what the situation in the US is like.

Does anyone know what is the nearest language that is similar to VBA and has visual stuff as well i.e. forms, text boxes, etc. that is in demand currently

Learning the basics of programming
ACCESS provides two ways of interacting with the VBA language. The most useful of the two is saved modules that contain VBA procedures. Procedures are batches of programming commands that can be executed to do interesting things like process transactions against master tables, provide sophisticated error checking, and so on. The second way to interact with VBA is directly through the interpreter. When you type a
statement into the interpreter, it is executed immediately. Although there is little business use for this feature, it does making learning the language and testing new statements easier. (pdf file, install Acrobat Reader to read this tutorial)

Get started with Access programming
When you create a new database, you typically begin by creating a few database objects such as tables, forms, and reports. Eventually, you reach a point where you need to add some programming to automate certain processes and tie your database objects together.

Introduction to DAO, ADO, ADOX, and SQL
Microsoft Access ships with a language named Visual Basic For Applications, or VBA. This allows you to complement MS Access with code that can perform complex operations. This language is used throughout the Microsoft Visual Office family of applications, including Microsoft Excel, Work, PowerPoint, Visio, etc. This language is also used by applications published by companies other than Microsoft. An example is Autodesk that publishes AutoCAD. To customize the VBA language for our database environment, Microsoft Access includes a library called Microsoft Access Object Library.

Naming Conventions
When programming in Microsoft Access or any other programming language, a common mistake that may occur is when one variable of one type is used as if it is of another variable type.
You may mistake in a line of code when you try to subtract a date value from a string value, which will throw up an error in your code.

I tried changing keyboard property in the control property and it works
but I need change in one control only, and if I change property it change for all contols after
so I need code on exit control event to change the system keyboard language
\e.g.
************************************************** **
Private Sub A_Enter()
Me.A.KeyboardLanguage = 49
End Sub
Private Sub A_Exit(Cancel As Integer)
Me.A.KeyboardLanguage = 11
'this works(it means that keyboard language for ctl is changed back on english - 11, but system keyboard language remain on 49)
' so I need here to change system keyboard language

End Sub

Tips to make access database easy to maintain
I am in the process of creating a utility for work based on MS Access. The only problem I have as it will not be supported by my companies IT department, it will have to supported by my team and I'm the only one in my team who has VBA programming experience. The only way I think I can get round this is by the following:


Fully comment the code
Write documenation explaining what each function does
Put all non-form based VBA code into seperate modules
Use fully descriptive variables


Hopefully with some of my colleagues can pick up some programming experience and be able to help me support it although to be honest once I get it up and running, there shouldn't be any need for maintanance once it is working. Does anybody have any ideas or tips to make MS Access VBA code easier to understand for people who have little programming experience?
