Re: JFW 12 and Access 2007 solutions?

With Jaws 11 it tells me the column header when I navigate to it. Perhaps it has to do with verbosity. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Shanda Adkins" <shanda.adkins@xxxxxxxxx>

Hi,
 Yeah, I can create a table in design view but can't tell what field
I'm entering data into--could you and if so, how?
Take care,
Shanda

Ok, from what I remember from my class, you can hit the alt key, on the
first selection in the home tab is view, press space. You can choose from
design view and datasheet view. I was able to create tables but queries were
a huge problem. The ribbon has pretty much everything you need to switch
views and create tables. I could only perform queries using the jaws cursor
to get to the fields. Hope this helps some..

Subject: JFW 12 and Access 2007 solutions?


Hi, All,
 I hope everyone is well.
 I've done some searching on the net, and read through some of the
messages found on this list concerning this, but nothing seems to be
jumping out at me.
 My basic question is this:  is anyone successfully using Access 2007
with any version of JFW and getting what you need done?  I don't mean
putting your data in Excel and then exporting to Access--no
work-around like that, because that's not going to work in my case.
can any of you input your field names into Access, change the data
type if necessary, and then put in your records and know which form
field you're in?  Can you do things like create reports, run queries,
ETC in Access 2007 using any version of JFW?
I'm not very knowledgeable about Access but I know a little bit.
I've done some work in 2003 with an earlier version of JFW and had no
problem that I remember.
 I am able to create my table in design view instead of data sheet
view.  My instructor says tis is fine with him, just so long as I get
it created.  I can put names for my fields, change the data type,
enter a description, whatever I want to do.  When I go back to input
records, though, JFW doesn't tell me what field I'm in.  If my first
field after the primary key is last name, there's no way for me to
tell that.  I can read records that have been created, but once again,
I can't tell what field is what.  I can see:
36123, Jones, Amy, 26524, $33,000
where each entry above is a piece of data in a field.  I can't see,
though, that Jones corresponds with the column entitled "last name".
 Anyone have any solutions that have worked?  All I've seen on this
list is that you should put your data into Excel and then export.
Insert+tab doesn't read any information to me either.
 Help appreciated.
Take care,
Shanda
