Formatting Comment from John Newton @ 10/4/2015
I vote less time on formating, if you spent the 50+ hrs watching so far; you likely saw a bunch already.  We know you hate alternating colors. (I hate too, but we heard you the first 100 times).
I do have a format type question however; when you cut and paste from detail to headed (for example), sometimes Access wants to put the pasted stuff in the upper left corner.  Why? Can I aviod that and have it copy at my curser?

It's just the default location, I don't think it can be changed.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I've just finished it yesterday so Rich should have it online soon, I think he's just gone away so might be a few days before it's available.

Hi, Richard.

I was going to purchase Access X24 - X27 today, but the list of courses only goes up to X24.  Just saying.  :)

Reply from Richard Rost:

Which list are you looking at? The order form goes all the way up to 27.

Ordinal or Suffix Function Comment from Alex Hedley @ 1/3/2015
At about 11mins Rich mentions a Custom Function for adding st, nd, rd and th to a Date.

This was first mentioned in the Forum.


Function myOrdinal (D as Integer) as String
    Dim Suffix as String
    Select Case D
        Case 1, 21, 31: Suffix = "st"
        Case 2, 22: Suffix = "nd"
        Case 3, 23: Suffix = "rd"
        Case Else: Suffix = "th"
    End Select
    myOrdinal = D & Suffix
End Function

I've added it to my Row Number Tip too.
