Oh man...what a bunch!
We are on the second last chapter of our textbook and still I have people asking me how to do the simplest things... things we have done, now - several HUNDRED times over the course of the semester!!!!!!!!!!!
We change views - from design view to form view; from form view to design view - over & over & over ... I've never counted... but honestly - we do it probably 100x/class ...every time you make a change - change views, check it, change back.
And (this is in MS Access - there are no fewer than 3 ways to make that transition. Honest! There's a button on the toolbar. It is in the Right click menu. And it is in the View menu as well.)
So today - I'm helping someone that was a bit behind:
"Huh?" blank look.
"Change to design view."
"Huh?" Blank look.
I count to 10 - maybe he's just having problems hearing...? processing...? He can't seriously not know how to switch between views at this point of the course. Seriously?!
"Ok - you fail!" I actually had to show him - again - how to change views.
If it was just the one, I wouldn't be so frustrated ...but honestly... some of the questions I get asked... and worse yet, the kids that don't ask the questions - they just totally disregard that their stuff looks entirely different than everyone else's stuff - I do what they need to do on a projector at the front of the room.
They should be able to look at my table and look at theirs and see that they are not the same.
They should be able to look at my form and look at theirs and see that they are not anywhere even close to the same.
And the reality is that they are perfectly capable of it. They just do not care to be bothered. And given that these are Aviation students, I find that very, very scary.
I'm thinking I may never go anywhere on an airplane ever again!
