Hi all, I must apologize for being so far behind in getting this out. I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for all the help I have recieved from this site, and these amazing professionals.
I started with big ambitions, and a very loose understanding of Access. I now have a total employee management system that I have cobbled together based on (really) 2 resources. Those are this forumn and all that participate(yes questions gave me ideas and made me a little dangerous!) And Richard, 599cd.com and related access tutorials ( which gave me a whole bunch of information, and more questions, and arguably more dangerous..lol).
Richard the mark of any teacher is the ability to inspire creativity. Anyone can teach someone how to do something. If you are able make someone think, that inspires lifelong learning, and endless opportunity.
For anyone who is "on the fence" about taking these courses, I would highly encourage it. I have taken a majority of the access courses, and although I have my project working well, i fully intend to complete the series. It is with absolute certainty that I recommend this series. I have learned that there is definately a personality to Access, and these course have given me the foundation to explore that aspect and bring it a little closer to my own.
On a sidebar, I also wanted to say thanks again to all the help that Alex has been. You sir have been instrumental in getting me where I am.
And I will leave you all with this...... Now that I have the thing working, I have picked up some graphical design ideas that I will be sharing (and asking more questions) as my project evolves.
I can't thank you enough for your prompt reply (for TechHelp). I appreciated that you didn't make me feel like an idiot althought my question should have been easy enough to deduce. I spent two days searching the internet and could never find a straight answer. You saved my project and I'll be eternally grateful. P.S. Your tutorials are a valuable resource for anyone trying to learn Access. I've learned so much from you. Thanks again.
I found your site looking for some tutorials on invoicing. There is a real gap out there. Plenty of people want to show you how clever they are (check YouTube). Not many want to show you from begining to end how to build a useful datbase. If you want to learn access 599CD is the right place. There is value in starting at the begining even if the temptation is to skip the really basic stuff.
