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.

- Our members and visitors enjoy and learn from a knowledge base of almost 2 million posts.
- Our AccessWiki continues to grow with in depth Access articles.
- We have recorded more than 1 billion hits to date.
UtterAccess would not be what it is without the willingness of each and every member to share, not only their Access knowledge, but also their questions and issues in making the most of Access.

| Introducing Virtual Access User Groups Online <-- click to reply

Just in From Juan Soto and Ben (Banana Republic)
"The time has come to create a platform that will allow Access users a way to meet virtually and discuss a wide range of topics. It is with great excitement that Ben and I introduce AccessUserGroups.org
Why virtual access user groups make sense
I've had the privilege to visit and present at Access user groups around the US, it's a wonderful experience not many get to share: people coming together for the purpose to improve their skills in Access. By fostering the creation of Access user groups online, not just headed by Ben and I, but anyone willing to put in the time and effort to organize and lead any kind of group, were hoping to bring more users to the wonderful product we love and work so hard to learn.
Groups could be arranged around a language, for example, Access Latino, or a technology, SQL Server with Access. We would love to see people start groups around Access web applications and other languages or geo regions. Get started on your group by attending our first meeting!
With the help of our partner Office365, each group of users will get up to 25 Office365 E3 licenses to use as they please. (E3 comes with a full license to Office 2013, including Access!)
Please join us on April 8th for the inaugural meeting and learn more!
Let me know if you will be attending in the comment section on AccessUserGroups.org
We look forward to building a global user network with Access, please join us!"

The AAFO, once built, is added to your Access App via an HTML i-frame element on your forms. AAFOs can be published to the Microsoft Store for public facing solutions, or administered on your company's SharePoint site for internal solutions.
To develop AAFO, we can use Visual Studio 2013 with the Microsoft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2013 - March 2014 Update
(direct download link
For a brief introduction to Apps for Office, take a look at this interactive API tutorial: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/office/dn449240
(excel based, but good for an intro)
Members of the Access Team recently presented AAFO to the SharePoint Conference. Videos of these presentations are listed below:
SPC204: Anyone can build a SharePoint App with Microsoft Accesshttp://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint...nce/2014/SPC204
Jeff and Chris Usher
SPC338: The 'how to' guide for selling and managing SharePoint Apps built using Accesshttp://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint...nce/2014/SPC338
Bob and Kevin Bell
SPC335: Rich extensions to SharePoint Apps using Microsoft Accesshttp://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint...nce/2014/SPC335
Gary and Arjun
SPC 348: Update on InfoPath and SharePoint Formshttp://channel9.msdn.com/Events/SharePoint...nce/2014/SPC348
Greg, Bob, and Sonya
And finally, a group of early testers were keeping some notes on AAFO and general development practices. These notes will be progressively migrating to a new portion of UA's own Access Wiki. Keep in tune and start learning how to develop custom controls and services for Access Web Apps!
