By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

This is the fourth Microsoft Access video tutorial in the Expert series. It picks up where Expert Level 3 left off.

This class is 1 hour, 48 minutes long and focuses primarily on new types of form controls including option groups, toggle buttons, the image control, and more. We'll also learn about one-to-one relationships, and practice more with one-to-many relationships. You will learn:

- Additional Form Controls
- Option Groups, Tab Control
- Toggle Buttons, Enhanced Formatting
- List Box, Image Control
- Display Image Without Storing
- One-to-One Relationships
- Extended Customer Details
- More One-to-Many Relationships
- Track multiple family members

This course was recorded using Access 2013, but is also valid for Access 2007 and 2010 users. Click here for more information on Access Expert Level 4, including a course outline, sample videos, and more.

Microsoft Access Expert 4 Comment from Ida Hangen @ 9/24/2018
First off I LOVE these classes.  I went back and review Access Expert 4 and was trying to use an option group in another database. However, I do not have a Option Group button in my toolbar.  I do have the Wizard Controls turned on but can not seem to locate the Option Group Button in order to create control buttons.   I went through a repair on Access but still not Option Group.   Do I need to go through a manual process to add a group of toggle or option buttons?  I must have had it at one time as my training Database has these groups on the form per this lesson.

Which version are you using?

Have you tried adding a frame then some radio buttons within that?

First, thank you for these courses as they have been extremely helpful.  I have two questions about toggles:  1.  Is it possible to create a 3-state toggle (e.g. Green, Yellow & Red options)?  2.  Are toggle buttons able to be printed on either forms or reports?  I've tried both and they disappear... using Access 2013.  Thank you for any insight.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Check for a "TripleState" property in the PropertySheet. Yes | No | Null

You should never print Forms, only Reports.
Do you just want to print the chosen value?

In lesson 4 I created the sub form and inserted it in CustomerExtendedF. Although the stand alone form showed three records, the sub form , when inserted, showed only the first record.
I have downloaded the student database file for this lesson, and I am unable to find any substantial difference between it and my version in the form design.
I must be missing something but I can't find it.
Any suggestions?

The Link Master/Child Fields, what are they set to? Do they contain the correct ID Fields?

At 18:18 you say you're going to enforce referential integrity so that you can't delete a customer if there is extended data. Then you say you will cascade delete so that if you delete the customer you will delete the extended data. Is this a mistake or is there a distinction that I'm missing?
