Access Europe – Peter Bryant (Automating DSN-less connections to SQL Server)

Peter Bryant will be leading this month’s presentation

Topic: Automating DSN-Less Communication to SQL Server
Code (and some data) to enable you to fire and forget application upgrades to different networks. Just build and send the customer the ACCDE that works on your development network and have it automatically reconnect to their server and database on first run. It works with more than one target SQL Database in the system. The user then just saves that new ACCDE to distribute to users. The solution has been proved with many clients and the code will be available afterwards; also included will be instructions and all the SQL Scripts you need to create a test environment to prove the code before trying to put it into your own projects.
The test application (which will come with the downloads) also demonstrates how you can switch the front end between your (or your users’) TEST, UAT and LIVE environments at just the click of a button (subject to version numbering).
The presentation will show you how it all connects up and how you can add to your existing projects.

Peter has run his own consultancy since 2004 and specialises in not specialising for many different sectors. A user of Microsoft Access since the beta program three decades ago his projects are as much (if not more) about data analysis, function and business problem solving rather than amazing code. Projects are generally lengthy prototyping/agile style projects when the client starts out quite unsure of their expected final requirements.
A regular speaker at the UK Access User Group for over a decade, he also has a source code licence for Andy Couch’s excellent MUST software and performs Access backend migrations to SQL Server As A Service.
