Talk On Access 2013 Web Apps Running at Office 365/SharePoint.com

Access Web Apps are being closed down in 2018

Last week I gave a talk at a big Australian SharePoint conference about Access 2013 Web Apps. This was remarkable in itself as no SharePoint person has ever listened to me before. To get tuned up for the presentation, I made some YouTube videos.  You can watch the first three of those Access Web App videos here

Video 1 -  Introduction to Access Web Apps and your humble scribe (me)
Video 2 - This is probably the first movie ever made on an iPad that shows an Access Web App. You would watch this just to get a feel of what a good Web App would look like.  I am not trying to sell the App I wrote, just demonstrate the tool.
Video 3 - Here is my take on setting up a Web App from scratch on SharePoint.com.  It shows what happens when you use the Table template.

Making The Grade

Its good to have look at challenging query situations every now and again as most Access problems are solved by queries, not code.  Doug Steele wrote an article on how to classify student marks into Grades A to F.  Have a look and see if you can follow the logic. Even if you can't, if you are a database programmer, you may need to one day.


You will find many challenging articles on queries on the LHS of Doug's article.  Read one query article a week and you will be a much better programmer as a result.
