Description:  This presentation demonstrates tricks and techniques that may be helpful when you are programming the "unusual" in your AAR. Techniques covered include programming a financial aid requirement to determine if a student is registered in classes that count towards a degree, invisible "hover-overs" that give information that cannot be seen unless you know where to hover, the differences between partitions and detail lines, how to insert a blank into a required field...a space bar will not do it, using links in the AAR to outside web sources, create a "go-around" when a course is falling into an earlier requirement than desired, using AARs to indicate proper course placement, and several other tricks that might be of interest.
