Level of Knowledge Upload Images   Link

I have previously worked with Access albeit it was over 20 years ago and I thought I knew a lot about database design. I have been humbled in a big way. My company at the time paid a few thousand dollars on training and software that did not come close to the level of knowledge I am acquiring through The Learning Zone.

Hi Richard:

    I want to say that I love the video with the report listbox.  I did the extended cut in my databases so I don't have the tables.  I love it.  I'm learning a lot of things from you.  You are the best instructor.

Better than Adult Ed Upload Images   Link

I've taken a few Adult Ed Access courses and they cram everything into 3 hours a day for 3 days. I always need to review. I like the idea that I can watch it until I get it. When you introduce a new topic I like to see more than 1 example to use/or apply the topic to your database. Great course. I never thought I would feel comfortable or confident in access, but I am now. Rick you're a great teacher. I LOVE THIS COURSE! I just dumped a database I was working on and built it the right way.

Thanks for the kind words, Matt.

P.S. Everyone else: I just found this in a survey Matt took back in 2013. See, I do get to all of your feedback. Eventually. :)

I have been developing in Access for about 15 years and your never to old to learn something new, you can teach old dogs new tricks. It's like reading the Bible every time you read it it's like a new book you learn something new. Thank you Richard for your time and GREAT training videos. Read More...

Boss Will Be Blown Away Upload Images   Link

I started a uni degree with the main objective to develop good data bases for my workplace. I wish I had discovered this site earlier. It is much more in-depth than the 12 week unit that covers data base design. I am very excited about the data base I am now designing and can't wait to finish it and show it to my boss, I know that she will be blown away when she realizes the amount of man hours that I will have eliminated with this data base.

Wow. Thanks for the kind words, Michelle. I'm so glad to be of help. Yes, I too started going to the University at Buffalo (New York) and took a few semesters until I decided it just wasn't for me. This was 1990 and they were making me learn things that were out of date since the early 80s (Pascal, Fortran, etc.) So I dropped out, started a business, and haven't looked back since. I consider myself 100% self-educated. School is good for some things (I wouldn't go to a self-taught brain surgeon) but for a computer nerd, you can learn with books, videos, or just by tearing a database apart. I learned mostly from books (love the Bible series) and by ripping apart the Northwind Traders database in Access 2.0 wayyyy back in 1994.

Hi! I'm Luz from Puerto Rico.

In 2019 I started to explore Access as a way to simplify part of my tasks at work (mostly because when I'm on vacation they pile up). At first it was a trial and error kind of thing since it was a program I wasn't familiarized with. Read More...

Never apologize for a long post if it's complimenting me. LOL. I appreciate your kind words. Once you get to know access it's definitely a lot more comprehensive and geared toward better data entry the Excel. It takes a little bit more to learn how to use it but once you do you'll find it's a lot more rewarding. I'm glad you enjoy the videos. Keep watching.

Keep The Errors Upload Images   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."

I agree 100%.  Keep the errors.
The error isn't as important as what steps you take to fix the error.  That, to me, is sometimes more important.
"Ok, my code doesn't do what I expected.  Now How do I fix it?"

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.
