Check Register

Microsoft Access Check Register Database


 S  M  L  XL  FS  

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach you how create a basic check register. We will build a query to calculate the transaction amount, and to show whether or not each transaction has cleared the bank. We will build a continuous form for check register data input with a form footer and totals.

Shane from Sacramento, CA (A Platinum Member) asks: Any tips for keeping track of my expenses in a simple check register for Access? I'd like to be able to track which items have cleared the bank, so I know how much is actually in my account vs. what the bank says is in my account. A running balance would also be nice.

BONUS FOR CHANNEL MEMBERS:
Silver Members and up get access to an EXTENDED CUT of this video which covers additional examples. That video will show you how to calculate running balances, both in a printable check register report and on our data entry form using the DSUM function.

Is there a way I can cut out or blank the $0.00 in the field for debit or credit in the form so I don't have to see all the $0.00

I took out the default Value "0" in the table but that messed things up. so i put it back in. Read More...

Yeah, the 0 default value is kind of necessary for the way it's set up. But I like your solution!

Everyone else: Russ emailed me after and said he used conditional formatting to display white foreground on white background if the amount is 0. Brilliant!
