Keep The Errors Link

Keep the errors in, it makes the rest of us feel human knowing that you make mistakes as well!

I'm glad my pain entertains you. Sob. LOL

Seriously though... I find that if you see the common errors that even I make, it will help you to figure out when you make the same errors - and maybe even avoid them. It's like that old quote, "if you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning."

Solid Gold Link

That material (Access Developer 19) was solid gold! I was fantasizing about the new projects I can tackle with this new knowledge. This is the only place I can simultaneously acquire excellent, useful knowledge AND a comedic rant! I laughed a lot during this lesson. I love your courses, sir! I am SOOOO glad I discovered your courses five years ago! Who knew this would launch my life into an entirely different direction?! I don't regret it one bit! Thank you for inadvertently investing into my life!

Thanks a lot, Brandon. I'm glad you're enjoying the lessons. I try to keep them educational as well as humorous. The last thing I would want to be called is boring. :)

Brandon's latest comments in a survey: "An amazing job, as usual, sir. I really enjoy the deep thought sessions. I can tell you're really dipping into your knowledge bank and I learn all sorts of new things! I learned many new commands and techniques during the jovial tirade!"

Haha. Thanks, Brandon! I aim to entertain. :)

Great teacher and material. Thank you for going to the trouble of having each topic labelled. It makes it really useful when creating a database to be able to go to each topic for guidance.

Thank you, Michelle. Alex and I do our best. It can be challenging sometimes. It's very hard to tell what's wrong with someone's database without actually being able to SEE it and play with it, but that takes SO much time (to have someone email me their database, extract it, open it, play around with it, and figure out the problem.) I'm 15 minutes in before I even have a chance to figure out the problem. There just isn't enough time in the day to help everyone out (for free). I wish I could. My inbox is PACKED with support requests... so I do the best I can. Thanks for acknowledging that.

You Are Number One Link

You are such a great resource and a great teacher. I have spent my entire career with staff development and certification of teachers and know a great teacher when I see one. You are the best of the best! I study videos of the best Access programmers and have narrowed it to 3 and you are number 1. You have enthusiasm for teaching - the others don't. You have a golden voice that I wish I had. You also know your subject to the point of being creative with the subject. All that is represented in your videos. Keep up the great work! I now keep my brain active and engaged with your videos. I use One-Note and make notes on each technique, function and skill that you use. Love it

Aww... Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words. You just made my day. I do love what I do. I'm glad my enthusiasm for Access shows. I'd be futzing around with Access all day even if it wasn't my job. :)

I appreciate your videos. You are the one who has taught me 75% of what I know about Access. You're a great instructor and I appreciate you investing the time you do in the videos. It does not go unrecognized. I love Access and I hope to be as good as you some day!

I started taking courses with Richard about 6 years ago.  With an interest in Access and a very elementary understanding of how it works.  Since then I have created practical, functioning databases for my old employer, my personal business and my church.  Understanding how Access worked put me substantially ahead of the curve when I did project work.  This is a thank you to Richard and an endorsement to what he's teaching.  Lessons/databases from 6 years ago are still going strong today.  Really like the seminars too.  They are great!

Thanks, Terrence. I really appreciate that. Yes, my Access lessons have aged surprisingly well. They really haven't made many significant changes. If you're using 2007 to 2019, they all behave pretty much the same. Minor stuff (like changing Memo to Long Text) is easy to work around.

Reading My Mind! Link

What I liked: Great explanation of so many topics. I often found myself thinking of a follow-up question that ended up being answered in the next few minutes. It was like Richard was reading my mind! Read More...

Thanks for the survey, Chris.

I studied mind reading from 1987 to 1994. LOL.

Seriously though - I've taught this class SOOOOOO many times, I know exactly what questions are coming up as I talk about each topic. With Microsoft Access it's even worse. Haha.

Unfortunately, the old Theater doesn't have video playback options. I just build a NEW player, however, and I'm slowly migrating my courses over to it. That player allows you to change the playback speed, size, and lots of other options.

Plus, I'm working on something new that I'm tentatively calling the "Learning Assistant" that I'm going to try for new Beginner classes. It will allow you to choose what direction your training goes in. So, for example, if you want a lesson on VLOOKUP but you really don't care about it, you can move on to the next topic. However, if you LIKE it, you can continue to dig deeper into it with more options. This will allow you to take a depth-first approach on topics that interest you, and just a breadth-first approach on things you don't want to learn as much about. Like skipping around in a book. This is coming.

I thought I did a pretty comprehensive job of covering most of the commonly used functions. Sure there are a lot of really specific financial functions and such that I just glanced over, but honestly I'm not really a finance guy. I know EXCEL and programming, but I'm not super into those weird financial areas myself. I only know stuff I've done: balance a checkbook, take out a loan, mortgage a house, pay taxes, etc. When it comes to super-high-end finance, that's all out of my league.

Ive been a virtual student of Richards for several years now.  I started my journey looking to understand Access.  Before taking the classes I had never used Access and knew very little about it.  I started with the basic Beginner Access courses and slowly progressed to Expert.  The lessons progressed logically.  The lessons were easy to follow and most importantly easy to understand.  The true value of the lessons were revealed when my employer needed an updated system for collecting/gathering data.  Because of the lessons I took I was confident in helping my employer come up with a simple database using Access.  What started as a simple four table database turned into a mega 20 plus table database with countless queries, reports, and forms.  I was able to customize the database to fit the needs of my employer, making office operations substantially more efficient in multiple areas.  Ive been given several accolades for the database.  This was possible only because of Richards courses, for this I will always be grateful.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Mike. I appreciate that!

And yes, you will save a bunch by becoming a member. Plus I'm more likely to answer TechHelp emails from members too. What's the saying? Membership has its privileges? LOL
