  1. a lovely domestic web page is one b izop p. c o m . it will permit you to assemble capital money From your Macintosh or PC.

  2. Thanks for the Video!

    I am a programming major with zero Access experience. I recently got a position at a company and Access is a must! You really helped me understand the fundamentals! Thanks!

  3. Best spending of money for the last few months. I paid almost nothing and received such a nice essay on❤️❤️❤️

  4. Dear Sali, my entries in form don't display in my table. What's your suggestion regarding it ?

  5. Sir, I was told to create a lab data base with query and stuff which I was stuck but after seeing your video I got some insights so far. Thanks for your explicit explanation.

  6. The process involves migrating access tables to SharePoint. So I migrated a table in Access to SharePoint AND THEN I linked the table, then I got a live connection to SharePoint. This is a bi-direction synnc of that table. So any change in Access (any update to that linked table) will see changes sent to the same table (list) in SharePoint.

    But I can work against these linked tables in off-line mode. This means that I can continue to update the tables even without network connection. When I do finally get wi-fi or some internet connection, then I can synchronize my changes to SharePoint manually by clicking on sychronise message after opening Access.

    My problem is I need the data to auto-sync (both ways) and tables will update missing or changed data to SharePoint automatically.

    Are there any ways to do this? Thanks!

  7. i can't get to the work file. When i click on the link down a web page appears telling me to log in. Pls help

  8. Easy to understand and slow enough to follow along. Thanks! You've made learning Access much easier than I thought it could be.

  9. Good morning. How do you do. I hope you are ok with your family. I like your tutorial video for Microsoft Access. I highly requested you make tutorial video for stock control. Example stock table, Customer table and Suppliers table from this three table how control minimum stock level when issue material for Customer automatic reduce from stock and when receive material from Suppliers automatic add stock. Please make tutorial video for this.

  10. Your tutorial was extremely helpful and I have reviewed several instructional videos prior to yours. I do have a question that I can't seem to find an answer for…..I have a spreadsheet that I'm importing into access that requires two additional columns added. The columns will be used to add a formula. Question: how do you add the column so that it does not disappear when running saved imports? I need these columns to appear in the final report that will be exported. Every time I run the saved imports it overrides the table. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

  11. Thank you Mr. Kaceli for your thorough yet simple to follow tutorial. You are an awesome teacher. Thank you for sharing. Never used Access and find myself having to get a quick handle on it as I go back out in to the work place. You have given me the confidence I needed, by making what I thought was going to be a mind boggling experience into a easy to understand one. Thank you so very much. Shalom

  12. I have tried importing the text file and it couldn't be done. I did everything you did but I always get an error message and a notice that the table couldn't be transferred. What could be wrong?

  13. How do i call on a database and deploy ALL the information stored? Say when i pull up a name, it also gonna automatically deploy all the info that was stored, e.g: name, address and cell number?

  14. When it comes to Primary key, can I have 2 of them? My situation requires field#1 to be able to repeat if it has different value in field#2 (IE: ModeA Version 1, ModelA Version 2)
