Microsoft Access Forum

Welcome to the Microsoft Access Forum. Access is by far our most popular topic here at Computer Learning Zone. This forum is for everyone to read but only students (paid customers) can post here. If you'd like to become a student, all you have to do is enroll in one of my courses. After you create a logon, you will have full access to the Forums.

Having problems with your Access database? Here are Rick's Rules if you want help. 

Rule #1: Before you ask for help with a WEIRD problem, meaning Access isn't behaving normally, then make sure you run down the Access Troubleshooter which covers solutions to many common problems. If you have a weird problem and you don't say "yes, I ran down the Troubleshooter" then I'm just going to point you to Rick's Rule #1.

Rule #2: Before posting your question, check to see if it's already been answered. You can use the Search feature to look for keywords. Save me some time having to only point you to another post where your question has already been answered.

Rule #3: If neither of those things help, make sure you post exactly what you're doing, what the specific error message is, what you've tried, and any other details we might need to help you. Don't just say, "I get an error." Tell us what the error is and what you're doing. We're not mind readers. I wish. Also, be sure to read this article on Context. It matters!

Rule #4: Links to files or images on other sites are NOT allowed. Don't try posting a link to your database on Dropbox or any other web site. If you have someone specifically offering to help you, you can email them your database. You can upload screen shots here using the Upload Images link provided on comments. Post your question, then you can upload a screen shot.

Rule #5: I encourage students to help each other out. I love seeing that. However, don't take advantage of someone else's good will and ask to send them your database for free tech support. I don't work on databases for free, and I don't expect my students to either. If you're looking to have someone else fix your database, you can post a request for service in the Access Developer Network. Not here. 

NEW: Access Developer Students, make sure you subscribe to the Developer Student Forum.

Keith -
I see that you posted this in the Tech Help so...  Maybe wrong area?
The Tech help videos are mostly short videos dealing with specific subjects

Richards COURSE videos are very rarely more than 30 minutes INDIVIDUALLY,  the total course is almost always at least 1 hour long and in some instances much longer.

How are you accessing the course?  You should be able to move from lesson 1 to lesson 2 to lesson x.  OR start in the middle where you left off.  Once you sign up for a course you can keep coming back and watch them as many times as you want.

Hand books ??  Personally, this depends on how you learn.  It's kind of nice to have a document open that you can refer to when building a data base.  Easier than watch video hit pause. Work on db.  Watch video. Repeat.

Hi Keith. You can find the courses that you signed up for on your My Courses page. Those are things like Access Beginner 1, 2, 3, etc. There are links that will take you directly to each of those courses, and they're all at least 1 hour long. A "course" is a series of "lessons." For example, the course "Access Beginner 1" is made up of 12 or so individual lessons. This is not to be confused with all of the other Seminars, Templates, or TechHelp videos that you might find on the site. Those are all different. Sorry if it's at all confusing. I try to provide different solutions for different needs. Watch the Site Tour video for some help.
