About Us: CAUG is an independent group of software developers and users of Microsoft Access and related products. Our mission is to meet and share information, techniques, and ideas, the fourth Thursday of each month. Visitors are welcome! Come check us out.


Membership: Membership is absolutely free and mostly consists of being on the CAUG email distribution list. Member experience varies from seasoned pros to Microsoft Access newcomers. CAUG can't be everything to everyone and we don't even try. If you like, simply attend meetings that interest you and skip those that do not.


Location: CAUG is hosted by the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in Chicago.

New Horizons is located at: 
525 W. Van Buren St
Suite 300
Chicago, IL 60607

Phone: 773-693-6000


Our Next Meeting: TBD - No October Meeting  



Our PREVIOUS Meeting: Thursday, September 27th, 2018 / 6 p.m.  


Topic: Smart Report Parameters
How to create dropdowns for report parameters that change their selections as you pick choices from other dropdowns, in any order. They always show valid report combinations, and users will never see a "No Data" message. Customers love it, and when they see it they ask for it in more places, not only for reporting, but also for finding data, and they make great filtering tools. You will not see these techniques and tricks on the Internet, or in any book.


Speaker Robert Aaron:  has been doing Access since 1994 starting with Version 2. He has also written computer games that were published and is listed on the Giant List of Classic Game Programmers. He also invented the puzzle game called Qubigon, which was sold in Sears and Walmart, and is now sold on Amazon and numerous other places.
