Henry Habermacher passed away on December 10th.

Henry was a member of UtterAccess, and while not active here in the last few years, he was very active in the Access community. Henry possessed rock-solid skills and had great insight into Access and how one can push it to the edge.

May he rest in peace and may his family find comfort.

Interested in moving your Access database to the Web? Not sure where to start? The various options and terminologies aren't very clear?

Our recent Wiki article - Web Enabled Access - attempts to break this question down into an overview of the basic methods to move your Access database to the cloud, providing a comparison of each: what/how/why as well as some pros and cons for consideration.

Some of the topics covered:

- Web Apps (2013)
- Web Databases (2010)
- Hybrids
- Cloud BEs with Desktop FEs

Check it out to get a handle on what's what and make an educated decision on which path works best for you!

Posted by DougY   
Heads up:
Security Update MS14-066 causes major performance problems in Microsoft Access / SQL Server applications.

KB 2992611 breaks ODBC on SQL server 2008

Please note that the fix suggested in the blog may not work properly. It is best to avoid installing the update on the server until the issue is addressed by Microsoft.

Edit: It has been determined that the problem is with the SQLOLEDB driver. Updating to the SQL Native Client 10 driver fixes the performance problem

This morning, Access veteran, Microsoft MVP, and UtterAccess charter member Ricky Hicks made his 40,000th post. For many of us Ricky is synonymous with UtterAccess. Throughout the life of UA, he has been instrumental in ensuring we 'stay the course,' both as a forum and, individually as Access developers. Publicly he has provided guidance and assistance to all comers. Behind the scenes, his contributions and efforts greatly outweigh the time and effort he puts into his public contributions. Arguably, Ricky is the single-most influential person guiding and shaping our community.

Congratulations and heartfelt thanks Ricky for making UtterAccess what it is and for being a positive influence on us all.

Another member has joined the lofty 10,000+ post club. Please join me in congratulating member mike60smart on passing the 10,000 post milestone. Since joining UA in 2005, Mike has been a shining example of UA's peer support philosophy. His personal motto, "Get happiness out of your work or you may never know what happiness is." speaks volumes about the kind of person Mike is.
Mike, thanks for being part of our community and congratulations on your achievement.

I am excited to announce that Ricky Hicks was [re-]awarded the Microsoft MVP award for 2014. For those who know Ricky the only question was - why did it take them that long??
Ricky is one of the founding fathers of UtterAccess, and was one of the first MVPs UA produced in the past 9 years. He needed to attend matters elsewhere for a while, but now he is back in full force, and his actions and contributions are once again recognized.
Congrats Ricky
