I may be asking too much here. I don't have alot of skills to offer, unless you want information about publishing small press things (fanzines, indy comics etc), or obscure movie trivia. I'm amatuer level at both. I'm sure I have other skills, but I'm not sure what they are.
I work in a retail video store. When I got the job 5 months ago he was still using paper records. Nothing was in the computer. (yeah, wow.)
Myself and one other employee took it upon ourselves to type the inventory into the computer. We started with Excel, then with help from a freind I transferred it to Access.
I work very late at night, and it's a very quiet job. I have almost nothing to do during my 8 hour shift. (about 1-2 hours of customer service, and 1-3 hours of cleaning.) So I started trying to make a workable computer program to keep track of movies, sales and rentals, and customers. I had no idea what I was getting into. I have 0 skill at this, except what I have learned on my own in the last 4 months. I'm not getting paid as a programmer, but am merely doing it in order to each myself, and to create a decent impression at work (and in the long term to make my life easier by having the movies online)..
Please, no comments about what a cheap so and so my boss is. I already know :)
4 months, four online tutorials, 2 books, and a couple of friends later, I'm dangerously close to having it finished. But I can't 'fine tune it' to make it work. My last few questions seem fairly complicated.
We are using MS Acess 2003( What I need to knowCollapse )
