Microsoft Office Lesson Versions
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   1/16/2014 9:33:55 AM
Hey folks. I've received a few emails from people asking about different versions for the my Microsoft Office lessons, so I wanted to clarify how this works.

Since Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019 are NEARLY IDENTICAL, I did not record separate lessons for each version. I have separate lessons for some of the Beginner Level 1 lessons so that I don't confuse any users who are absolutely new to the software, but after that point, all of the lessons from Beginner Level 2 on are all recorded in the then-current version of the software. There are no separate lessons for these versions. They would be identical to the previous videos, so I didn't bother re-recording them.

Yes, there are a few MINOR additions and changes in some of the versions, but the vast majority of the material is the same, and if there is a major change, I either re-recorded that lesson segment, or I have made an addendum video and you will get a copy of that video with the class. So far, in 15 years, I've only had to make two.

In my expert opinion, 99% of the material covered in my Office 2007 and up lessons are PERFECTLY FINE for all users, however, if you do discover something different, however, please let me know.

I hope this clears up the confusion.

SQL Comment from Kerra Cameron @ 3/21/2014
Do you have any videos for building SQL databases.  I have been a access user for a while and I am ready to upgrade to SQL.

Reply from Richard Rost:

I have lessons on the SQL language as it pertains to Access, but I don't have an SQL SERVER lesson yet. I expect to have one very soon, however.

Access 2010 vs 2013 Lesson Versions Comment from Keith P @ 3/10/2014
For many years I have wanted to learn Access.  I put it off because it seemed formidable.  You have made it quite simple and in less than three days I have finished through Beginner 6 and looking forward to the expert level. Thanks!

Wish List Comment from Joe Crouch @ 2/26/2014
I am considering Office 365 to keep updated with latest Access version and to deploy database on line (split data base).

Are you planning any tutorials for Office 365 and Share Point

Reply from Richard Rost:

I am planning on making some videos with Access 2013 and Sharepoint, yes.

Access version 2010 vs version 2007 Comment from Bonnie @ 1/23/2014
Richard, I have recently had problems with my working out the lessons from Access 2013 Expert 12. The computer I normally use is in the shop. That computer is Windows 7 running Access 2010.  My older laptop is Windows XP running Access 2007. When I try to work the lessons in Expert 12, in 2007 it refuses to copy the database I ended with as I finished Expert 2011. An error message tells me that it can't read OrderT because it needs Access vr 14.0.0000 (which = Access 2010).  I thought I must have done something funny  so I tried to copy your sample file for the end of Expert 11 and got the same message.

Hopefully, my regular computer will be back in my hands soon, but it has stopped me working through the lessons. I thought you would like to be aware of this problem.

Thanks so much for such good lessons.
