Access Advanced 1 is Finished Comment from Robert J H @ 10/29/2016
I paid $20.00 for a 7 min intro, that cover BEGINNERS level, and what would be cover in the balance of the advanced level. I learned nothing new. I am disappointed.

Hi Robert,

I'm sorry to hear this, are you saying of the 1hr course there were only 7 minutes of new material for yourself?

The full outline is here: Access Advanced Level 1 with the intro and review lessons of most courses available to try before you buy,

00. Intro (2:31)
01. Macro Basics (13:40)
02. Building Macros (14:47)
03. Making Macros Smart (16:58)
04. Form Open Events (15:29)
05. Review (4:44)

Usually the first episode of a new series will cover some of the goals of the series in future,

There was also a sneak preview of Macros in Access Expert Level 32
04. Intro to Macros (36:18)

Would you like me to pass this concern onto Customer Services?

Access Advanced 1 is Finished Comment from Eric M @ 10/1/2016
Search form Macro: I sent a request for help in the forum but I think this would be a great class.  Saw something close in your tips videos but need the addition of a combo box.  So, the scenario: Set up a form with a combo box and two text boxes.  A command button opens a form based on the three.  I got the Query to work but don't know how to load the Query into the "where" part of the macro.  Just using VBA, I found code online; but can only get the text box part to work.  I get many errors from the variations I tried, most frequent, type mismatch when I add the part for the combo box.
   So run a macro to open a form using a Query... or VBA code.

If this is explained in a different class, please let me know as soon as possible.  I need the search for asap (More importantly, I'm going nuts trying to make it work)
