Access Advanced Level 2
Versions: Recorded with Access 2016. Most of the material should work with all versions of Access from 2007 on.
Pre-Requisites: Access Advanced Level 1 strongly recommended, as you should watch all of my classes in order. However, if you're skipping around, you should have at least completed the Beginner series and the first 3 or 4 levels of the Expert series where I start to cover functions.
Running Time: 1 Hour, 3 Minutes
Cost: $29.99


This class continues our exploration of Macros and Event Handling. We will begin with one of the more popular topics I get asked about: how do you open a form and go directly to a new record without using Data Entry mode? I'll show you how to do that with a macro. You'll learn about OpenForm and GoToRecord.

Add new record via macro

 

Next we'll tackle another popular problem: what happens when you open a form with a subform (for example, our order form) and the user tries to add a CHILD record before there is a parent record in place? For example, they try to add a line item detail before there is an OrderID. This is a little more complicated, and we'll need to learn how to check for a missing Parent ID field, and use the GoToControl, SetValue, RefreshRecord, and GoToRecord commands to handle this one.

child record macro

 

Finally, we'll design a toggle button where we can change the caption (and other properties) of the button so that it says "INVOICE" or "Quotation" depending on what kind of order this is. We have to learn how to dynamically change that caption for each record using the On Click Event and the On Current Event. We'll learn about the Caption property, external macros, the RunMacro command, and the Enabled property.

This is the 2nd class in the Access Advanced series. If you're serious about building quality databases with Access, and you want to learn how to automate your database with Macros and Events, which is a good pre-cursor to VBA programming then don't miss out on this course. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
