Visual Basic for Access & other things SQL Database related


Use the above link for a fantastic array (joke) of programming information, I especially like the VBA stuff in here, many hours of really useful help and worked examples of code you can copy and paste and test/run in your own systems to see exactly how it works.

well done !

Dont forget the World Of Learning Conference is on today and tommorrow at the NEC, Bham and is full of all your favourite IT Training and Development needs.
I shall be there to make new contacts and see what's happening out there in the current world of training.

Many key companies and trainers will need to think of new dynamic approaches to training as the reccession bites and budgets are at rock bottom.

Smart Training is required and cost effective approaches to training your staff.

Courses are being condensed as TIME is a costly asset for Managers, a day out of the office for 2 or 3 delegates is difficult as work demands have doubled and even tripled for our poor IT workers as other staff have been made redundant or have been given other duties to juggle.

Good Luck
