Microsoft Office Lesson Versions
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   7 months ago

I recently finished re-recording Access Beginner 1 and Beginner 2 for 2022 which will show changes in the Access 2019 / Microsoft 365 versions. The differences between previous versions are minor - mostly terminology (memo fields are now called long text, etc.) I'm currently re-recording Beginner Level 3, and will continue to upgrade more lessons as I have time.

Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and Microsoft 365 are nearly identical. Therefore, it's not a high priority for me to record separate lessons for each version. Once you're beyond the basics, you should be just fine with the older lessons.

Right now, for example, Access Beginner 3 thru Expert 3 were recorded with Access 2010. Everything from Expert 4 to about Developer 13 were in Access 2013. Aside from some minor cosmetic differences, pretty much everything is exactly the same as Access 2019. I do want to re-record them eventually to use the larger video format, but the material is nearly identical. You'll have no problems following along with them no matter what version of Access you're using.

I like to record separate videos for the Beginner lessons so that I don't confuse any users who are absolutely new to the software, but after that point, all of the lessons from Beginner Level 3 on are all recorded in the then-current version of the software. There are no separate lessons for these versions. They would be nearly identical to the previous videos, so I didn't bother re-recording them.

Yes, there are a few MINOR additions and changes in some of the versions, but the vast majority of the material is the same. For example, Memo fields are now called Long Text fields. If there is a major change, I either re-recorded that lesson segment, or I have made an addendum video and you will get a copy of that video with the class. So far, in 20 years, I've only had to make two.

In my expert opinion, 99% of the material covered in my Office 2007, 2010, and 2013 lessons are PERFECTLY FINE for all users, however, if you do discover something different, however, please let me know.

I hope this clears up the confusion.
