The Denver Area Access Users Group (DAAUG) welcomes Microsoft Access users and developers of all skill levels and professions to join us in the discovery of the power of Microsoft Access.

DAAUG, the Denver Area Access Users Group was established in 1994 in order to help Microsoft Access users at all skill levels get the most from Microsoft's Office database product. Still active and going strong, the membership shares current methods and techniques at our monthly interactive labs, general meetings and special events. DAAUG is dedicated to helping everyone involved with Microsoft Access improve their database skills and understanding. Whether you are a novice user or advanced developer, there is a place for you in the Denver Area Access Users Group.

Access Tips and Tricks

Armen Stein

Making your Access applications consistent, powerful and easy to use.

Topics will include:

  • One line of code that can demystify your debugging
  • Elegantly handling inactive lookup values
  • Providing special selection options like "" in filter comboboxes
  • Adding instant keyboard date incrementing (day, month, year) just like accounting systems
  • A better record finder for your user (instead of the confusing Access dialog)
  • Custom high-performance record navigation buttons
  • A performance “gift” you can leave for the next time a report is run
  • And several more!

Whether you are an experienced or beginning developer, you’re sure to learn something new that you can apply to your applications immediately. Example code will be available to attendees.
