There is no shame in not knowing. The problem arises when irrational thought and attendant behavior fill the vacuum left by ignorance.

I remember wanting to skip the advanced lessons so bad. I was saying to myself, why would I waste my time on learning all this macro stuff when I'm just going to never use it again as soon as I get into VBA in the dev classes.

Now here I am, I'm glad I watched them. I was right that I would never use macros, but I use the extra stuff that was taught along side that every time I open a database. Events, Properties, the beginning learning of how VBA works. All that is priceless stuff.

I think you're really missing out on not following in order, whether you think you need that specific class/example or not.

The only reason I wanted to include macros at all was because AT THE TIME, Microsoft was planning on incorporating them heavily into Access Web Apps. You wouldn't be able to use VBA in them. Well, Web Apps crashed and burned. However, like you said, I do cover a lot of extra stuff in those lessons like events, event procedures and timing. It's all valuable stuff.

However... I do think the next time I re-record, I'll be skipping Advanced and going straight from Expert to Developer 1. I feel it's just as easy to learn VBA as it is to use Macros. Macros are like VBA in a baby walker. :)
