My YouTube Training Videos Line-Up is Growing.I've been adding videos to the line up. I'm also getting better at it; I think. I published Numbers Five and Six yesterday.
So far, the series includes
- An Overview of Display Formatting options for date/time fields in Access tables. It emphasizes the point that the VALUE stored doesn't change regardless of the DISPLAY FORMAT applied to a date/time field.
- That video includes an introduction to Display Formatting for dates. The key take-away from that one is that ALL dates in Access are stored as decimals with both a date component and a time component. See the video for details.
- A More Detailed View of Display Formatting options for date/time fields in Access tables. It includes examples of date comparisons illustrating the underlying values are not always apparent from the display format applied. See the video for details.
- Improving Appearance and Effectiveness of Forms by using custom display formats for dates and dates with times. The key take-away from that one is that custom display formats are an easy, effective way to make your Access forms better. See the video for details.
- Effective Date and Time Filtering in Access Forms uses Date Display Formats along with basic date logic to filter records returned to Access forms. See the video for details.
- Default Dates and Date Formatting & Grouping in Access Reports carries the discussion on to Access reports. In this video we see how date logic and formatted dates can support grouping within an Access report. It also introduces simple date logic functions necessary to select Default Values for controls on Menus. See the video for details.
- Date Formatting and Filtering in Access Reports Filter Criteria for filtering, grouping and sorting in Access reports. In this video I show you how to use TempVars as criteria in the query which provides the records to be displayed in an Access report. See the video for details.
- Are the videos useful to beginners?
- I realize that experienced Access users and developers should know much of this information already, but my target audience is really the beginners. Am I on target?
- Are the videos too long (or too short)?
- How long should videos like this actually be? Is ten minutes enough? Twenty minutes?
- What do you want to see next?
- I will continue the current series on Dates and Date Logic because it is such a fascinating and extensive topic. Where would similar videos be helpful?
