By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

textMicrosoft Access Expert Level 25 is 1 hour, 33 minutes long. This is the first class in my Comprehensive Guide to Access Functions series. You will learn a bunch of NEW functions, and new tricks with some of the functions we've covered before. You will learn how to separate first, last, and middle names from a full name field, calculate overtime pay, and lots more. Topics include:

- String Functions
- Left, Right, Mid, InStr, InStrRev, Len
- LCase, UCase, Trim, RTrim, LTrim
- Replace, Str, CStr, StrComp, ASC, CHR
- Space, String
- Logical Functions
- IsDate, IsNull, IsNumeric, IsError
- NZ, VarType, TypeName
- And, Or, Not, Xor, IIF, Nested IIF
- Switch, Choose

Click here for more information on Access Expert Level 25, including a course outline, sample videos, and more. This course was recorded using Access 2013, but most of the functions covered are valid for all versions of Access. This class follows Expert Level 24. The next class in the series is Access Expert 26.

Thank you.  Since this is a limited sort of problem, I think it works for me.

Feel clever Comment from Richard Wilson @ 4/12/2015
When I feel clever, I need to tell you so you can tell me if I'm wrong.  I use Prefix, FName, MName, LName & Suffix concatenated into FullName.  This is for data that continues to be entered from time to time.  Trim works to get rid of the extra spaces if there is no Prefix or Suffix, and now Replace gets ride of the extra space if there is no MName.  However, for the Trim function I concatenated all five fields and called it X, then used Replace on X to convert two spaces to one.  I think it works!!!  Do you see a problem?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

It's hard to cover every option but trim is a good way of getting rid of it.
You could have a load of IIF statements
Or you could use the + instead of &

VB functions for file access Comment from Kenny N @ 2/6/2015
I want to learn the fastest and most efficient way to open, query, update, and close SQL files in VBA.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Ah thought you meant files.

If you are wanting to know about SQL you could do the SQL Seminar Series was is awesome

Or you could start at Access 320 (Advanced Access Recordsets) onwards
This is using Access 2003 but the concepts haven't changed and the developer series holds well.
