Symbols for Special/Custom Formatting

To customize the display of numbers, dates/times, and text, use the Format property.

For a field, you set this property in the Table Design View (in the Field Properties section) or in the Query Design View (in the Field Properties property sheet). For a control, you set this property in the control’s property sheet.

The Format property affects only how the data is displayed, not how the data is stored.Read More

From ITIL Foundations to ITIL Master: An Essential Overview

From ITIL Foundations to ITIL Master: An Essential Overview

May 4, 2018 in Corporate IT Training, ITIL / by Centriq Training

ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is a framework that offers guidance for IT Service Management. It has been around for many years, but the United States only recently caught on to its value.

ITIL was developed in Great Britain in the 1980’s after Margaret Thatcher discovered that the government’s IT department wasn’t providing much value. They contracted with IBM to do a study of organization’s IT units to identify what they did to be successful. In that study, success was defined as “providing services to the overall organization that the organization finds valuable.” The first version was published in 1989 and has been revised three times, most recently in 2011, and will be revised again this year.Read More

The 15 Top Programming Languages to Know in 2018

April 23, 2018 in Corporate IT Training, Microsoft, Web Development / by Centriq Training

Whether you’re an entry-level programmer or a developer looking to enhance your resumé, you should be aware of the top programming languages for 2018.

Much of this list hasn’t changed over the years. Some of the staples of website coding – HTML, PHP, SQL, and JavaScript ­– haven’t changed in a decade.

But, if you want to get into more advanced web apps, then you’ll need to know more than HTML and JavaScript. Consider learning languages like Ruby and its popular web-application framework Ruby on Rails.Read More

Access Fantastic Features – Startup Options: Navigation Form and AutoExec Macro

Access Fantastic Features – Startup Options: Navigation Form and AutoExec Macro

April 17, 2018 in Corporate IT Training, Microsoft Office / by Craig Gerdes

A split database will very often use a Navigation Form on the front-end as the entry point for users.  A good idea is to display the Navigation Form by default each time a user opens the database. This makes it easy for users to switch between the various forms and reports in the database without affecting the data tables stored and protected on the back-end. This blog will explain a simple process of creating a Navigation Form by adding buttons to display forms and reports and then configuring options to display the Navigation Form at startup instead of the navigation pane.  In addition, a brief discussion will describe a more advanced process of Navigation Form design that opens database objects (including queries) and shows a message (if preferred) at startup.
