Calculate Quartiles in Microsoft Access


Quartiles
There is no single "correct" calculation method for quartiles. Excel features two methods, some math and statistic packages offer some more, but my latest article presents no less than twenty methods for various purposes using VBA and Microsoft Access.

20 Varieties of Quartiles

The documentation to find is sparse, so comments are most welcome.

Ranking rows in Microsoft Access


EE-Rank.png
To rank something isn't that difficult. Basically, it is just to sort on the values to rank - points, goals, sales, citizens, whatever - in descending order or (typically for time) ascending order.
But how to rank dupes? Five methods exist, and they can all be implemented in pure SQL or using VBA.

DJoin

DJoinAs you can union records, you can join field values. Presented here, DJoin offers increased speed and flexibility compared to the ancient ConcactRelated and similar functions. Further, it offers better read-out of Multi-Value fields.

How to re-read database for record with a key passed as an argument?

I have two forms: one a list of Products; and second, an edit page of additional Product information.  I have an event on On Dbl_Click on the List page with the following code:

DoCmd.OpenForm "Product_Edit", acNormal, , , acFormEdit, acDialog, Product_Nbr.Value

While I am able to see the Product_Nbr Argument being passed into the Product_Edit form, I'm not able to have this second form display this particular record.  It only displays the first record in the Product table.  

How to I tell Access to re-read the product table based on the Product_Nbr being passed into it?


Thanks....

Andre.

Thank you for your assistance.  I was able to get it to work by specifying the Filter as:

WhereCondition:="Products.[Product-Nbr] = " & Me.Product_Nbr.Value,

Don't like the current themes in the newest version of Access?   Microsoft is rolling out two new ones.  For details, see:

https://products.office.com/en-US/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=access

and look under "In Development".  And if your looking for all the latest that is happening with Access, use the the red "Filters" button, select "Access", and then click apply.

For those of you wondering what might be up and coming in Office, one way to stay on top of that is the office 365 road map page:  https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=#abc

and checking the "In Development" section.  For those interested in Microsoft Access, you will find a new feature listed there:

"Access: New charts for modern data visualization
Introducing new charts to help you visualize data managed in Access in an appealing and modern way. Add any of the new eleven chart types, including a combo chart, to a form/report to visualize your data and make informed decisions."

Sounds like we are going to get a major new feature!   Of course, if your part of the Office Insider program, you'll be one of first to be able to check it out!

Microsoft has added a page to their Office Templates which provides templates for five types of Access databases (Asset Tracking, Contacts, Students, Event Management, and Task Management).  I have not had a chance to review these databases, but this is the first move we have seen in quite some time to add anything "Access" to Office marketing, and is good news.

Please download these templates and encourage others to do so.  If we generate enough traffic, maybe we will be able to get additional templates on the website.

With this "gap", Microsoft is going to have an improvement to the Controlled Folder Access functionality (luckily they accepted to change it). Look out for the next update ... Meanwhile, I foresee there will malware that will attempt the bypass (really soon...)

AI and machine learning humanize app development and marketing

Machine learning is being used as a marketing tool as it can access user data and gather additional insights on the users’ behavior and engagement preferences.
While artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for a while, scientists have recently made massive breakthroughs in the field of machine learning, a subfield of AI, as noted by NPR.

Adding awesome vector clipart to LibreOffice

I was recently poking around with LibreOffice and figured out how easy it is to add great vector clip art to ones LibreOffice gallery collection.  My experience with both LibreOffice and the site that provides so many awesome clip art images in vector and many other formats was so pleasant, I figured I would post this tutorial to give then both some love.

Step one in the tutorial is where we download the vector images we want to add to our gallery. This is where flaticon.com comes in.  They have over six hundred thousand icons - all of which you can download in multiple image formats including .png, .svg, .eps and .psd.  Many of the icons are available with their free account but you can get full access to a richer set of icons with their premium plans. Plans range from about $7.50 to $9.99 per month at the time of this writing. If you like their work, consider getting one of their premium plans.  

Gallery1.PNG  Gallery2.PNG











Once you are on flaticon.com, if you are a free user look for one of the icon packs with the [S] in the top left corner - this means the pack is available for free. Icon packs are saved as zip files by default, so you will need to unzip the folder to a familiar location on you hard drive such as Photos folder if you are using Windows - as I am in this tutorial.

With the folder unzipped, you are now ready to fire up LibreOffice. I am using LibreOffice Version: 5.3.4.2 (x64).

I have an access form, "frmCompetition" with a subform, "sfrmDogBrace." This is a database for field trials for bird dogs.   I would like to filter the contents of the subform based on selections I make in 3 separate comboboxes in the main form.  Any advice?  I've tried makeing the underlying query of the subform reference the contents of the 3 comboboxes as criteria.  No luck. Is there some vba code I could use?  My comboboxes are cboyear, cboday, and cbo brace.

In exchange 2007, wondering if anyone knows how to limit the view of specific public fodders to certain people or security groups.

I know how to limit access (ie author, contributor, editor, etc) but a client has asked that only certain people be able to see certain public folders to reduce the overall amount of viewable public folders (to reduce "clutter" if you will) for everyone viewing the public folder structure. ....

This is a copy of part of the article located here:

net neutrality
vote takes place 12/14/17:


Even so, it is the work of but a moment, so we all may as well do it. Go to www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express, and under Proceeding, enter 17-108 (the dystopian-named “Restoring Internet Freedom” order). Fill in the form very, very, very carefully, ensure you get an email confirmation, and submit.

Your voice will be louder, as it were, with a phone call. Call the FCC and leave a message letting the agency know that you want to keep net neutrality as it is. Dial 1-888-225-5322, and be polite, patient, and persistent. You want Option 1, Option 4, Option 2, Option 0. Enter a complaint on proceeding 17-108.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is ___, and I live in [city], [state]. I’m registering a complaint about the proposed repeal of net neutrality, because it will hurt American consumers, reduce internet access, and restrict the open flow of information. I strongly oppose the undoing of net neutrality, which is at the core of proceeding 17-108. Thank you.”

Then call your members of Congress. The FCC commission is appointed and makes these decisions, but Congress can pressure the agency to do the right thing, and it can also put forward legislation to make net neutrality law instead of just policy. Find your congresscritter at https://contactingcongress.org/, and call the local office …
