Access 24 Finished
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   8 years ago

Access 24 is finished and online. You can order it now and watch it in the Theater or download it. I haven't updated the web site yet with the full outline, but here's what's covered:

- Importing RSS Feed Data from Web Sites
- Pulling Live News from MSNBC and CNN
- Pulling Live Weather Data from Weather Underground
- Display Web Page in a Form with WebBrowser Control
- Use an Event Timer to Launch Events at Intervals
- Set up an Online SQL Server Database
- Share Your Access Data with Other Users Online

Yes! Lots of people have been asking for that last item. In this class I teach you how to set up an SQL Server database on a web site (I use GoDaddy for web hosting, and they have this service available for less than $5 a month). You can then upload your tables to the SQL Server database and connect to them from Access. You can then give your database file to other users and you're all sharing the SAME data! Takes about 20 minutes to set up.

I will try to get the full outline up in the next day or two. I've got a pretty busy couple of days ahead of me, so I'm not sure when it will be available, but below is the full list of topics covered.

Also, if you're on the Waiting List for this class, I'm going to try to process these orders by this weekend, but again feel free to order it yourself and I'll make sure you don't end up with two copies.
