Microsoft Access Expert 17
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

Microsoft Access Expert Level 17 is 1 hour, 37 minutes long. In this class we will continue working with Action Queries. We will also do more with Union Queries, and we will begin working with Crosstab Queries, which are very similar to Excel PivotTables. We will create a project to tie all of the Action Query techniques we've learned together by archiving old unpaid orders from our system to a backup archive. Topics include:

- Archive Old Unpaid Orders
- Select & Mark Orders w Update Query
- Create a Form to Review Orders
- Append to Archive Table w Macro
- Backup Customers, Orders, Details
- Add "Write-Off" Notice to Customer Rec
- UNION Query for Reporting on Both
- More with Embedded Button Macros
- CrossTab Queries (like PivotTables)

Click here for more information on Access Expert Level 17, including a course outline, sample videos, and more. This course was recorded using Access 2013, but is also valid for Access 2007 and 2010 users. This class follows Expert Level 16. The next class in the series is Access Expert 18.

MakeCustomerBackupQ Error Comment from vicki H @ 5/23/2015
The [Picture], bitmap image/OLE Object or  the [Website]  & [Email] hyperlinks in the CustomerT. Are those attachments?  No lookups in the Table.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Did you add the Picture one yourself?
It's advised to have a path of the Picture you use in the DB and not an image stored as this bloats the DB. Open Other Programs Seminar and Imaging Seminar.

Try removing the Picture Field from the values you want to back up.

MakeCustomerBackupQ Error Comment from vicki Hudson @ 5/22/2015
When I try to run my MakeCustomerBackupQ I get the "You are about to Modify...", click Yes, and I get error message "Multi-valued fields are not allowed in SELECT INTO statements." I notice it did not create my CustomerBACKUPT.  Help

Is there an Attachment Field in your Query?
Have you created a Lookup Field in your Table?

Course Ideas Comment from Michael @ 3/27/2015

Since you are always encouraging us to send you ideas for future courses, here are a couple of ideas for your consideration. First, you might consider putting together a seminar on queries with particular emphasis on multiple table queries and all the things that can go wrong. We've used multiple table queries throughout the Expert series, but I think that it would be really good to take a deep dive into what is happening behind the scenes inside of Access - having this insight would make users much more confident I think. I would include an entire session on bad queries - for example, ambiguous outer joins and Cartesian products. I think there is just so much you can do with queries to make a solid class or seminar.

Along the same lines, I think you could make a class covering validation. It's one thing to build a database, but as you know, a database without good validation rules in place (for example, the ship date can't be before the order date; the invoice date can't be before the order date;) is just a recipe for disaster. You could easily use your order table for some of these things.

Food for thought. As always, thanks to you and Alex and the entire team working behind the scenes to bring us these great videos and fantastic instruction.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Have you seen the Outline for the SQL Seminars?
I can't remember if all of those are covered but they would be a very addition if they aren't.

Validation Rules are covered in Expert 28.

Thanks for the kind words and suggestions, it's a pleasure being able to help out.

Thanks Comment from CHARLES FULGHAM @ 1/24/2015
Mr. Rost, I have taken every class starting from Beginner-1 through here Expert-17.  I must say, Expert-17 is hands-down my favorite so far.  I feel a major breakthrough has occurred for me personally.  Just thought I'd say Thank You!  I am excited about the remainder of the expert series and eventually the advanced/developer series' as well.  Again, just wanted to say THANKS!

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Glad you're enjoying it Charles.
I love when it hits you that things are sinking in and your understanding is sticking.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the series and I too am looking forward to the A/D Series, that's when the real fun starts with Programming.

Comment from John Miller @ 2/5/2014
Access 2013 Expert 17 Video:2 at 15:19 time forward you ran into the Duplicate Out Put Destination Error for ToBeArchived field. you later explain that in the Append Query each field needs to be listed separately if you are using one of the fields as Criteria. I have found in my working with Access that by removing the Append To reference to the duplicate field it works just fine with no error

Do you cover how to create a multi user login in Access? And to track the user's transactions in Access?
