windows 8 lessons level 2 Comment from pmgamer18 @ 1/21/2014
Your windows 8 lessons level 1 was great.  My laptop died with vista and your help saved me a lot of problems.

When I bought the new laptop I had the store up load my files from my old laptop.  Long story short they left my virus and firewall off.

Your lesson showed me how to find this and my new laptop was so full of malware and adware I could not link to anything.

sites were poping up in front of sites I linked to and I needed to try to turn them off.

After seeing what was wrong I went back to the store and made them fix this problem.

If I had not see your lessons I would be going nuts.

Thanks for what your doing.

Lock Table Fields Comment from Arshnoor @ 8/27/2013
In a table of MS Access 2010, is it possible to lock certain fields so that the user can only see those fields but not edit it?


Reply from Richard Rost:

Nope. Your end users shouldn't be in your tables anyway. Use a form and just show the user the fields you want. You can set the LOCKED property for the individual fields, or ALLOW EDITS, ALLOW ADDITIONS, and ALLOW DELETIONS properties of the form.

Security of database Comment from rc @ 4/13/2013
I made a database in access, now how I can stop people from deleting the database knowingly or unknowingly. I want people to use it but not to delete database from computer. Is it possible. Awaiting for reply,Thanks.


Reply from Richard Rost:

In a nutshell: you can't.

One of the problems with Access alone is that the users need to have rights to the database file and the folder it's in. If they can't write to that folder, then they can't work with records.

I show you how to secure your Access databases as much as possible in my Security Seminar and my Split Database Seminar.

If you need REAL security for your data, however, the only bullet-proof method is to use a database server (like SQL Server). Otherwise, just make sure you have good daily backups and if someone does something they're not supposed to, FIRE THEM. :)

C Programming Lessons Comment from gm @ 12/7/2012
i love your tutorials!!! keep it up! but i hope you will also cover C/C++ ...


Reply from Richard Rost:

I've been thinking about doing a C/C++ course. It's been on the WAITING LIST forever, but so far only has a handful of votes. I don't know if there's much interest in it from my current customers.

However... my son just enrolled in college and is taking a C++ course. The book they made him spend $120 on is AWFUL, so I've been thinking about putting something together geared towards college kids.

Thoughts?

access append Comment from Jennifer Hull @ 6/13/2010
I have taught myself access and am using it for a medical database in soweto JHB.  If more than one person is working at different sites on the same database, how do I integrate the data from each person?   Please help.  


Reply from Richard Rost:

This is certainly NOT an easy situation to deal with. Your best bet is to integrate them all together into one database... preferably a centralized, web-based database. I show one such solution in my Access Web Synch Seminar. You can always create custom import/export routines for this as well. I plan to create another seminar in the future dealing more with this issue.

open office Comment from charles @ 6/4/2010
do you have any courses on Open Office? And will it conflict with Microsoft office ?


Reply from Richard Rost:

I do not currently have any courses for OpenOffice. I would like to add some in the future, but don't have time for it right now. What do you mean by "conflict" with Microsoft Office? They're competing products, yes, but I don't believe there are any software conflicts that will come up if you install both on the same PC. Honestly, though, I've never tried it.

Dreamweaver Comment from Richard Rost @ 6/11/2009
Microsoft just renamed FrontPage to "Expression Web." It's still essentially the same product (with some upgrades) and does everything that FrontPage did.

Dreamweaver Comment from Tim Bromund @ 5/29/2009
As with Marty's comments above in January.  I'm looking forward to some dreamweaver courses.  with MS no longer supporting Front Page, some web hosts are no longer supporting/carrying FP server extensions.  I have Dreamweaver and have played with it a bit.  It seems like it is a more powerful program, but it isn't nearly as intiutively user friendly as FP was.  Whenever you can get some Dreamweaver training sessions up that would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Nigel, my VB course is just that... for developing programs in VISUAL BASIC. Now, if you're looking for a course on EXCEL VBA, then yes I agree that's something that I need to develop. I haven't touched on Excel VBA at all in my EXCEL classes. Oh, and yes, I have spent some times on Mr. Excel's web site. It's very good. I love Bill Jelen.

Comment from nigel @ 9/15/2008
Your courses really are excellent BUT, most of the VB course seems centered on user forms, combo boxes etc.

i would like to see more VBA that is centered on excel itself. I don't want to advertise but if you look at MR Excels message board, 90% of the problems people are trying to solve have nothing to do with userforms.

Could we have some courses that solve some of these type of problems?
Thanks,Nigel

Jagadish, the easiest way to upload your photographs to the web is to find an image-hosting service such as PhotoBucket or ImageShack. You can set up a free account at one of these web sites and they have very easy tools to allow you to upload and share them with friends and family.

The Excel Data Analysis courses are Excel 220 through 224. I would say that these five courses are MUCH better than the seminar. The seminar was recorded many years ago and only briefly touches upon a WIDE range of subjects. It was designed to get someone up and running quickly with Excel. The Data Analysis pack covers many good topics IN DEPTH, including data lists, data entry forms, subtotals, and most important of all, PIVOT TABLES. Yes, we accept Paypal as a payment method. When you place your order online, the web site will list that as one of the payment options.

Richard,
I ordered both Photoshop 202 and 203 some time ago and at that time, it was stated that 203 was in the process of being developed. Since that time, it hasn't been completed and it's "still in the process"...Do you have any prospect of completing this in the near future??  Your other courses are great.  I'm going to do your Frontpage / Web Design courses soon...  Regards.

I cover Cut, Copy, and Paste (CCP) in a couple of different courses, depending on what you're using it for. For example, to CCP plain text, I show you how to do that in Microsoft Word 101. I also teach it in Excel 101 for spreadsheet cells. If you want to CCP whole files and folders, I show that in Windows 120.
