Back in the Saddle
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

Hey folks. So many of you have emailed me wondering what's going on since I haven't released any new classes in a few months. Too much to post here! But, in a nutshell, yes, I'm OK now. I've been dealing with some issues, both personal and professional, but I'm back in the saddle and recording more videos, and I'm looking forward to 2018 being a MUCH more productive year than 2017 was.

Next up will be to finish and release 3 or 4 more Access Developer lessons. I'm going to try to get at least one done per week moving forward in 2018. I had recorded and prepared a bunch of new videos and then due to a glitch ended up losing them. Again, long story. But look for more coming up soon.

After that I'm going to be revising the rest of the Office lessons since Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook are all overdue for a remake.

I'm also looking for your ideas for a new ACCESS SEMINAR. So if there's something you'd like to see, post a message in the comments below. A few ideas that have been proposed include a time and billing database, the barcode seminar that I mentioned a while back, and more. So post your ideas below.

And again, thank you all for your kind emails and your words of encouragement over the past few months. I really appreciate it.

Data Replication Comment from Adonis B @ 2/5/2018
Yes, offline usage is necessary due to the amount of queries that run within the application to access the data. Some forms-reports take longer than a minute in running all the queries before actually displaying something if all the tables are online (ODBC SQL server). Because of the number of queries on the database, user will have to work with this data locally stored, then as the users add or edit the data locally, this have to be uploaded/synchronised (in batches probably) to the ODBC tables, "cloud", and the same process repeated with all the users, so they can see the changes done by other users, when their front-ends synchronise again to the updated ODBC tables. On which lessons/seminars, do you teach to do this processes?.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Why don't you create VIEWS in the SQL Server and have that process the data, then get access to grab the VIEWS, this should speed up the time it takes, if you have Access create the Queries it has to pull down all the data first then run the Queries.

Data Replication Comment from Adonis B @ 1/25/2018
Hello Alex Hedley... I saw to my previous comment you answered with AccessExpert 23, but in that very lesson Richard explains at minute 2:30 onward he talked about the remote editing of data, on remote databases, for these data to then be uploaded and updated to the main/server database, you said that it required programming therefore was a subject for another class. My question, on which class you cover this topic, I purchased all the expert access courses, and even the Access Web Synch seminar, but still I want to properly learn how to do this 2 way data synchronisation from a client locally editing data, to then this be uploaded and updated. Something similar to data merge replication, if it is covered in a lesson or seminar, please point me out, as Expert23 and the WebData Sync seminar only covers basic addition of data to a server/webpage but no editing and distribution of the published data. kind regards

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Could it be hosted in the cloud and accessed that way, or do they need offline usage?
