Re: The Ten Commandments of Access

I think a computer degree would be a posiitve but for individual tasks other experience may override it.

For example

I have been asked to design a fixed asset register for a housing company. It will be used to project manage planning applications on sites.

Their decision was influenced by the fact that I have worked in a planning office for 10 years and I have designed other similar systems which I could demonstrate to them.

You'll find that the more you know the more you still need to know.

Red face Re: The Ten Commandments of Access

Just with regard to these ten commandments - of which i still have to say are over my head - can anyone please recommend a simpletons guide to Access? I am really struggling to understand it all - yet my job seems to be crucial on learning it.

Hope you can help me or point me in the right direction

Re: The Ten Commandments of Access

There are many aspects to coding. The aspect you require depends on what you are trying to achieve at the time.

Consequently there is no simpleton's guide. Every project requires research to discover the techniques required and this seems incredibly daunting. Get used to it.

Over time the developer acquires more and more pieces so less and less reseach is required for each new project but as far as I can tell there is always more to learn.

The more you know the more you will realise you don't know yet and this goes on for years. Experience is your teacher.

Thank you - very wise words i guess. I just feel as though there seems no easy place to start - its like its almost Da Vinci code - a secret society only certain people having the knowledge - i so want to learn but know one willing to teach.
