Hi Tony

Thanks for this link

Started watching this but the video quality is poor - as is some sound from other webinar members though George himself is fine.

As the screen is 'blurred' I'm having difficulty following what he's explaining.
Have you been through this successfully yourself?

If so, could this be a suitable topic for you to redo yourself as a video?

Cheers

No, didn't have the time, or inclination Colin.

However I've just discovered that app sheets can be linked to MSSQL Server, (I think, I need to verify it)

And following along in this video:-


which is where I got the indication that you could link to Ms SQL, I note a vague similarity with MS Access in the construction of these web forms.

Looks interesting because Google App Sheets can link to a variety of data sources both local PC and web.

Also it seems that it's a gentle learning curve because you can start off with Google sheets and migrate them to Google app sheets.

So you have three levels of use/user you can have the everyday use/user. Any person competent with a spreadsheet can turn one into a mobile application by using Google app sheets.

Next someone with a reasonable grasp of JavaScript can modify this beginners level into something even more useful.

And finally a developer can use API interfaces and do wonderful things with it!

Looks like there are quite a few useful YouTube video instructions on it as well I've only just started examining this & would be by interested in others views ....

You did indeed.
Only the first two sentences were visible when I replied!
Anyway, I don't use any of the Google products such as Sheets...

Maybe you should consider having a look, especially now they've got App Sheets which aren't actually Google sheets, it is something a little more advanced...

I mentioned in my first post that I thought App Sheets can link to MS SQL Server. This could/will? open App Sheets up to MS Access, getting MS Access data on the web, and I assume vice-a-versa.

In this video:-


at time index:- 3:25 one of the data connections offered in the combobox is to MSSQL Server ..

Incidentally, elsewhere on the web it said you could not link MS Access to App Sheets. Well, you could, if you loaded your Data up to MySQL first. I should think it would be a better option uploading it to to MSSQL....
