Access Developer Network Info
Welcome to the Access Developer Network. I get tons of requests for help. Too many. While I love helping people, there are only so many hours in the day. I quite simply am stretched pretty thin between my various projects, and I would honestly spend my time doing what I do best: recording new video tutorials. I'm more than happy to take on TechHelp questions in the "how do I...?" format, or even projects that I can turn into new courses, templates, or modules for the ABCD.
As of June 2021, I am no longer personally accepting projects that involve me working with databases that I haven't built myself. I'm happy to show you how to do something new in a video, but I'm not troubleshooting problems anymore, or taking on projects that are specific to a single customer's business. See my Consulting page for complete details.
I know that there are a TON of other Access developers out there looking for work. I know that a lot of my more experienced students would love the opportunity to help out the new guys. So, that's why I started the Access Developer Network. This is a Forum where people who need help with their databases can post what they need, and other Developers can help them out - for free, or for a fee. That's for you to decide amongst yourselves. To start out, I'm going to keep this informal as a way to help out both problem seekers and solvers. It's not work I do anymore, and I know a lot of you need help, and a lot of you have help to offer. Win/win/win. If this starts to take off, we'll make it more formal later on with an appropriate project management system. But again, let's keep it friendly to start. Help each other out. Feel free to negotiate.
So, if you need help with a database, post your needs on the DevNet page. Be as descriptive as possible. I can't promise that someone else will be able to provide you with assistance, but I've got a lot of Developer-level students who I know can handle most tasks when it comes to Access.
If you see the Access Veteran badge (that funny-looking logo to the right) next to their name, you know they're one of my long-time, trusted Developers. I'm only allowing my Developer students who have completed my classes to offer assistance on projects here. I'm also inviting a few other select Access Developers who I know and trust to do good work (a few other MVPs and people I know from other Groups and Forums around the Web). Not just anyone can sign on here and offer assistance.
Yes, only my students can post in my message forums. So if you're looking to post a project here, you'll need a student account and logon. The good news is, you can become a student for just $1 by enrolling in any of my Beginner Level 1 courses. If you don't need the course, consider it the fee for posting your project in a Forum visited by some of the best Access developers on the Web. I know. I trained them. Plus, since you've paid your dollar, my Developers can be assured that you're a real person. Consider it identity verification too.
