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.
