Access 2010 Web Apps 101

Paul Schnitzler

Access 2010 has given us a great new power to push our applications into a web browser. Is this round two for data access pages or a true game changer? In this meeting we will begin to explore the differences between Access 2010 web apps (via SharePoint 2010) and client apps. We will discuss… how the design interface changes, what environments are best for Access 2010 web apps, strategies for deployment and how to make your tables web compliant.

Jim Pilcher

A Generic Lookup Table Editing Form

Jim Pilcher

Many attempts have been made over the years to provide a single form that allows the end user to manage all lookup tables in a database. Most attempts fall short of what a developer wants to provide a client. Jim Pilcher will show you such a form which reads table structures and configures itself to provide a more pleasant and professional experience for the client.

Focus on Access 2010: Table Macros

Paul Schnitzler

Developers have screamed for this capability for several versions of Access. Find out how to use table macros to automate common database tasks at a table level. We will look at the before & after data macro events as well as named macros. Here are some of the examples that you will see… keeping track of who last updated a record, writing to a history table after a delete or change, maintain a de-normalized total on a parent table. Access 2010 has put a new face on the macro designer and added new functionality like parameter support, IntelliSense and copy and paste.

Discover the new Navigation Control in Microsoft Access 2010

Jim Pilcher

Jim Pilcher will show you how to create a contemporary menu and forms navigation system using this exciting new feature in Access 2010. Jim will discuss the various properties of this control and how you might use it creatively in your own applications. Believe it or not, the Navigation Control is relatively easy to use and offers the opportunity for a shorter presentation, so there will be a question and answer session following, as time allows.

Importing Data From Excel, Make List Box and Combo Box controls work better and Visual Studio LightSwitch and Kexi

Patrick Headley

Importing Data From Excel

Have you ever tried to import data from Excel into Access and not all of your data was imported or you received type mismatch errors? With the procedures shown in this presentation you will be able to get your data into Access and take control of data inconsistency issues.

Make List Box and Combo Box controls work better.

In Microsoft Access, when you scroll down a List Box or the list of a Combo Box control that has many items in it, scrolling doesn’t work as expected until you reach the bottom of the list. In addition to that, when you requery the contents of a List Box control, say after returning from a detail form that may change the values displayed in the list, you loose your previous selection. This presentation uses a List Box control to show you how to make lists behave as you would expect, from the start.

Visual Studio LightSwitch and Kexi

There are some new kids on the block that compete with Microsoft access. Neither product completely clones the features and ease of use that Access offers but they are close enough that you should at least be aware of what they are. You will eventually have to face them. This will be a high-level overview of both products but you will be able to see what they are and decide how pertinent they are to the work you do. If there is enough interest in either product we could have a more detailed presentation in the future.

Patrick Headley is a database application consultant developing applications in Microsoft Access, .Net, ColdFusion, PHP, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MySQL. He has been in the Microsoft Access development world since 1997 and has had his own company, Linx Consulting, Inc., since 2003. Patrick is also the current president of the Denver Area Access Users Group.
