The Denver Area Access Users Group (DAAUG) welcomes Microsoft Access users and developers of all skill levels and professions to join us in the discovery of the power of Microsoft Access.

DAAUG, the Denver Area Access Users Group was established in 1994 in order to help Microsoft Access users at all skill levels get the most from Microsoft's Office database product. Still active and going strong, the membership shares current methods and techniques at our monthly interactive labs, general meetings and special events. DAAUG is dedicated to helping everyone involved with Microsoft Access improve their database skills and understanding.

Boost Your Productivity with Two New Access Add-ins

Kevin Bell

Looking for a better way to manage linked tables in Access? The AccessUI Data Source Manager allows you to quickly survey what external data sources are being used by your Access database, and change, or add linked tables with just a few mouse clicks. The AccessUI Ribbon & Tree Builder is an add-in to quickly build modern user interfaces for your Access applications. Whether you love or hate the Office Ribbon, it is not going away anytime soon. While you can do some very sophisticated things with the Ribbon, the XML markup is extremely finicky to work with, and hard to debug. With the Ribbon & Tree Builder you can create elaborate Ribbons without ever touching the XML. Treeview controls have always been a great way to navigate relational data, but working with ActiveX controls creates a whole set of potential problems. The Ribbon & Tree Builder uses a completely native treeview that is as simple to program, as creating a few queries.

Kevin started working professionally with Access in version 1.0 and has been working with SQL Server since version 4.21. For 15 years he ran a small consulting firm in Colorado that specialized in creating custom data driven applications on Access and SQL Server. In 2008 Kevin joined the Microsoft Access Team as a test engineer, working on the Access 2010, 2013 and 2016 releases. Kevin is now helping companies migrate their Access backends to the cloud. In his free time Kevin enjoys traveling the world searching for the perfect pint of ale.
