NEW SECTIONS Added on Access RUNTIME and ACCDE Compiled Databases!
If you have used Access but wonder what the best way is to setup Access on a network, this course is for you! Every step starting from a single database to a complete front end/back end network environment is shown in detail. I have spent many years working with businesses with multi-user networks and these are the methods I have developed to help me get the most done in a minimum of time! Why suffer through network headaches? I will show you how to avoid them completely!
From a Student Review -
With this course on networking, Bruce has hit it out of the park! This course is a great addition to the Access series taught by Bruce. He easily explains how to work with Access on a small network system with real world solutions to real world issues. This is a must take course to round out your Access training!" - Rodney
Although knowledge of VBA is not required, this course shows you how to create several programs in VBA. You don't need to understand VBA to just follow along and create the subroutines and functions for the course. Plus databases with finished VBA programs are provided for download.
Most of the employees in my client businesses have small networks staffed with people who know nothing about Access and the ribbon and navigator are always hidden, yet these people usually get more work done faster than experienced Access users! Right now there is a huge and growing need for people who can setup shared database networks like these and there just aren't enough people who know how to do it right.
Another Student Review -
"An excellent course. Bruce gives you the benefit of his extensive experience and is always prompt to reply to any query that you may have. I would rate this course at least 10 out of 5!" - Ray McConaghy
None of this is theory and you won't find these techniques in any book. The content of this course is a breakdown of the methods I successfully use to administer dozens of networks for my client businesses. I learned a long time ago that you have to automate every routine job that you can, but also you must eliminate downtime for your client and yourself by making silly mistakes. These methods of creating and maintaining small, shared folder networks remove many of the potential pitfalls and the wasted time taken up by periodically updating the network database.
Take a look at the demo video and watch as I update a network with a modified database in under 30 seconds!
A Student Review -

Follow along as I take you step by step through the creation of a network database and tools that let you update it easily. This course will show you :
If you take the time to learn these techniques you will save MANY HOURS of time and not have problems caused by improper updating of your network!

Hello, my name is Bruce Myron. I am a self employed Access programmer and general computer consultant to small and medium sized businesses. I got into programming because I was tired of all the jargon most programmers use and how they don't seem to care about business.
"Technology is great but I've always been more interested in how it can be used to make companies more profitable." - Bruce
I live in Portland, Oregon and have many long term relationships with local businesses. Many of the systems I have built for these companies are critical to the success of the business. My specialty is taking the needs of the business and translating them into a system that facilitates, rather than obstructs, what they are trying to do.
I have also spent time as a full time trainer providing group classes on the Microsoft Office programs.
In my opinion the computer industry as a whole is a colossal failure in helping businesses solve their problems. I listen carefully to the needs expressed by my clients and then deliver the simplest, most flexible solution possible.
Over the years I have found that many of the techniques I have used enabled me to survive and thrive when many others have tried the computer programming business and failed.
My goal is to show my students how to create systems that business will value and that will create long term income.
