New Access Seminar Ideas Needed
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   11 years ago

I have a customer who has contracted me to build him a personal / small business finance manager. The main purpose of the database is to allow him to track his accounts payable, including recurring bill payments, outstanding balances, and so on. He also wants it to be able to print checks.

This database will NOT need to track his sales and income, because he has taken all of my Access 101 to 329 classes, and is using the customer / order database that was built in those classes for that purpose. Basically, this new database needs to track the MONEY OUT end of his business.

So... of course, since I'm going to build this database for him, I might as well record it as a seminar as I've done many times before, and share it with everyone. What I need from all of you, my wonderful Access students, is ideas for material to include. Be specific, and tell me what features YOU would like to see added to this database.

Also, let me know if you're interested in this as a seminar. It will be intermediate to advanced level, and will be built in Access 2007 or 2010 (they're almost exactly the same).

You can either respond here, or Contact Me.

Would be very useful to have a Treeview example with at least 5 levels.

Monthly recurring billing application would be a huge interest.  There are lots of one time billing tutorials out there but nothing for monthly recurring billing.

i think that it's will be useful for your customers that you will  discuss in your aceess courses about making a improved dialog with the access users  and accordingly the users selection it's will show up another dialog box with one or more options which the user can select between them ... it's practical for developers that want to make a friendly and smart access database for regular user that will be ability to have a kind of communication  with the computer without knowledge in computers and databases

I would like to see how to do a callback to a form if one form needs a "default" setting, but the other doesn't. For example, if an item is not in a Combobox and you use the List Items Edit Form to add the item you could set a default there, but if that same form is called from another area, being able to find out what form or control called it would allow the user to set a "default" for one call and just a regular add form for another.

I'd like to see a multi-SendObject Method.  Example: When the money or checks go out - then have the send object method send an email to whoever the money goes to.  So person 1,2 or 3 or Company 1,2 or 3 - Dear "Person's name" we have a check # XXX coming to you in the amount of $####.  Of course have it automated by just clicking a button.
