Microsoft Access 220
Advanced Access Queries 1

Advanced Query Techniques, Round Values, Form Footer Totals, Inner & Outer Joins, Cascade Deletes. 65 Minutes.
 

AC220 Major Topics

  • Advanced Query Techniques
  • Round Values
  • Form Footer Totals
  • Inner & Outer Joins
  • Cascade Deletes

This class begins our look at Advanced Query Techniques. We will start by creating a Sales Log system. We'll build a sales log table where we will store basic order information, like unit price, description, quantity, etc.

 

Next, we'll create a Sales Log Query which will use Calculated Fields to figured out the extended price by multiplying the unit price and quantity. We will also learn how to calculate sales tax based on whether or not each sale is taxable - cool stuff, using the IIF() function we learned about earlier. We'll also learn how to round off values inside queries.

 

Next, we'll make a Sales Log Form where you can enter in your sales information, pick your customer from a combo box, and so on. There's a real cool trick on this form - one that people have been emailing me to show them for a while... how to put a Total in the form footer!

 

We'll learn about different types of Query Joins, like Inner and Outer Joins. This is necessary if you want to, for example, get a list of all of your customers with contact history - whether or not they have contacts; or all sales whether or not there is an associated customer record. This is very powerful stuff.

 

We'll also talk a lot more about Global Relationships, Referential Integrity, Cascade Deleting records, and more. This is a great class, and it's just the first in our series of Advanced Query lessons.
