NOTE: This meeting has been postponed from December 11 to January 8.
The DACS Microsoft Access SIG (Special Interest Group) meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month.
Meetings are VIRTUAL MEETINGS using a combination of webcast software for screen sharing, and Skype for audio conference calling. This means that you will need to install two free software components and have a microphone that is compatible with Skype. The meetings start at 7:00PM Eastern and typically last until about 8:45 or 9:00. It is imperative that first-time participants contact the SIG leader a day or two prior to the meeting to install the webcasting client software (free, available for Windows, Mac, Linux) and Skype and participate in a practice session.
The topic for the January 8 meeting will be the use of Stored Procedures in SQL Server (they are available in the free MS SQL Server Express) to satisfy pass-through queries from an Access front-end database. We may look into the execution plan as displayed by the profiler in Management Studio Express.
The SIG has run for more than 10 years, and we always welcome suggested topics and questions from participants. Questions need not be related to the planned topic of the session.
NOTICE: SIG meetings are a benefit of DACS membership, however we have a 'try before you buy' policy where you may attend one meeting prior to joining DACS.
