New Series!

We are introducing a new series for the blog today, aptly called “ACL: Beginner’s Corner.” The goal is to offer advice from someone learning ACL in the trenches, sharing shortcuts, processes, and ideas that decrease the learning curve for new users.

Who will be writing this series? Good question. Let me introduce myself. My name is Rob and I am part of the Advisory Services practice at Brown Smith Wallace. If you want to see my forced smile and learn all about me professionally, check out my LinkedIn page here. I recently moved from our Audit practice to Advisory Services to join the Data Analysis Group. Jan Beckmann leads the group and is quite known for her ACL expertise (check her out here and here) No pressure, right?

My ACL journey started back in July and I plan to touch on subjects that range from specific ACL actions to big picture thinking about the data. My way isn’t the only way, and may not be the best way, but it will give a new ACL user an idea as to what I was thinking.

As always feel free to comment and share any of your own tips or tricks!

July 2013 Meeting Resources

Hopefully everyone is taking advantage of this unseasonably cool St. Louis summer! A special thank you to Matt Adams of the Cardinals for the extra innings game winner last night. This morning’s coffee tastes a little better because of it.

As promised, here are the links to the ACL Connections 2013 presentations Jan briefly discussed at the beginning of our meeting:

Joe has also been kind enough to provide her presentation on scripting data integrity verification:

Thanks again and we’ll see you at the next meeting!
