And 2 More New Releases

Yet again I am a little behind on announcing new releases. (I impulsively decided to sell my house this month and it required this thing called cleaning that it turns out takes time to do.)

Anyway. The 2019 versions of the Access books are now out, Access 2019 Beginner and Access 2019 Intermediate.

I prioritized these over the PowerPoint updates because it turns out they made one “major” change in Access 2019 compared to Access 2013 that throws me every time I have to use the program and that’s in the import section for External Data.

Now when I want to import an Excel file I actually have to go to the New Data Source dropdown menu, then choose From File, and then I can finally choose Excel from the seconday dropdown. For a new user to Access I thought that was a big enough change that I wanted to get the updated guides out sooner rather than later.

Other than that, though, as with the other guides you’re pretty much fine using either Access for Beginners and Intermediate Access or Access 2019 Beginner and Access 2019 Intermediate. The base knowledge on all of these programs doesn’t change so drastically between versions that you need to relearn it.

(At least not since that lovely 2007 release.)
