It has been a big help.

I'm an old procedural xBase programmer just investigating learning Java. Just watched a couple of the videos and am impressed.

67. sitemap.xml Mon, 21 Jun 2010 10:09

I appreciate your videos about OpenOffice; it is much easier to see what to do from a video than from the OOo help function.

However it would be helpful to include more info about what things do--for example, you show how to add and change relationships but never explain why I might want them.

Also I often want to do thing that don't seem to be possible with the wizards. I'm sure design mode was included for good reason and it would be great to learn more about

Good straight forward guide thanks

I wish I had found this about two weeks ago. Would have saved some serious learning curve time from someone who knows nothing about databases.

This is slow and thorough, just like me.

I'll most likely have to watch this several times to get the full benefit.

Well Done!

#4 on creating forms is a good start.

57. marinir seo Sun, 28 Feb 2010 21:31

Very nice presentation. Going to watch more as I am having issues with forms right now and appreciate any help I can get.

56. Tue, 16 Feb 2010 04:33

I think that this is not full information. I hoped to find that how to change the field name. For example, there has a field "Note" in your sample, but I don't want to name it just "Note", I want to name it "Note about exclusions". And it is more desirable the table's column in database be named by "Note", but not by "Note about exclusions".

Just getting started You are giving more examples than I need but when you get to a topic that troubles me I'm sure I'll appreciate the level of detail.

53. Valentino Decoration Eco-Friendly Sat, 23 Jan 2010 10:40

I got stuck for a while in creating a relationship (previous video). I had 'Employee' (Varchar) that I wanted to link to Table 'Employee' (ID - integer - primary key [auto]) and it took me quite a bit of 'fooling around' before I realized the (obscure to me) error message in creating the relationship might be due to differing types... at least changing the first from Varchar to Integer is what 'fixed' the situation and let me create a relationship.

Obviously I'm a TOTAL 'newbie' at this.

Thanks for the great help. I would have quit without your assistance via video!

Hi Dai,

51. cheap retro jordan Fri, 15 Jan 2010 07:19

Dai - good vids. Get yourself on the roster of DemandMedia, maybe you can get paid for your work.

50. marinir seo Sun, 10 Jan 2010 07:26


Just trying to learn how to use forms.

I' like to ba able to collect data from a filled in/out/up form so the

customer enters the data doesn't have to print the form, fill it by biro, and post it by snail mail.

49. anonymous Sun, 13 Dec 2009 11:17

Great!! I 've been looking and searching for a form to make an invoice but really my own way. Nothing.. until I found you! Great to have it with a vid tut. Personnal, I learn better this way, very visual I suppose...

Anyway, thanks for the work you put into it. It is very appreciated.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
