Web training session January 26th live from Chicago!

I’ll be presenting at this month’s Chicago Access User’s Group. (www.CAUG.com) It will be broadcast-ed live via the web as I present my newest topic:

Access Kung Fu – Tap into your inner VBA Sensei

SQL Server Hosting

We will discuss three topics, TempVars, Enums and Classes.

  • TempVars are a great way to store global variables in your application, use them everywhere: your code, queries, forms, and reports. We will discuss why they are a better alternative than a global module variable.
  • Enums are a convenient way to detail related constants in your database, you will enjoy unparalleled functionality with your constants using this data type.
  • Classes are what makes your app sizzle. If you’re not using classes then you’re not tapping into the best that Access has to offer, period. We will discuss what the classes are and will provide you with some great examples.

When and Where

There are two ways you can participate:

  • In person: Go to CAUG.com and email Kevin Anderson to get on the guest list.
  • Via Web: At 5:45 PM Central Standard Time on January 26th I’ll start the web conference, join.me/accessexperts, please plan on arriving before 6 PM so we can get you setup and working before the show. You can reach me via email or chat by using the join.me software if you’re having problems connecting to the web conference.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn more and expand on your Access skills!

    Well it’s 5:45 pm central and I click on the link you posted and it leads to a Skype image of you and other people skyping; why didn’t you say it was a Skype conversation rather than a join.me? Had I known it in advance I’d have bought some credit, now it’s almost 1 o’clock at night in Italy and I don’t feel like rushing around purchasing credit, I’m going to bed.

      Hi, Giorgio.

      I’m so sorry about the confusion but the presentation actually started at 6 PM. Juan wanted people to get joined and all ready 15 minutes before and that’s probably why you saw that Skype chat – he was helping people getting joined up and making sure they had audio (there’s a # phone that join.me provides for audio) so it wasn’t a Skype chat. We’re happy that you gave it an effort and will consider how we can improve the experience for everyone.

      Thanks again!

        Thanks Ben, too bad there’s no recording of the session. Just out of curiosity, you said, “Juan wanted people to get joined and all ready 15 minutes before and that’s probably why you saw that Skype chat – he was helping people getting joined up and making sure they had audio”, I was one of those who wanted to get joined as well but I don’t see Juan’s Skype address anywhere, did he provide that to the perspective joinees there and then via that small chat window I saw popped up at join.me/accessexperts?

    This sounds great, and the topics are definitely areas I should know more about.

    Unfortunately, being in the UK precludes me from attending in person, and the time difference makes the post-midnight online session tough too!

    Will it be available to watch online after the event in any way?A

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Juan, I’m interested in your webinar, but since it will be short past midnight here in central Europe that time, I want to ask if there will be a recording available to wannabe attendees like me.
    Kind regards from Vienna, Austria,

    Oh and by the way, the title says 24th while the body says 26th, which one is right?

    Hi Juan, I’ll make sure to participate to the webcast even though it’ll be past midnight in Italy. Why, when you click on the join.me/accessexperts link, you get to the following page saying:
    You have arrived at the 404 page!!!
    Search Results for: Sorry, but you are looking for something that is not here.
