Access Expert Level 32
Description: Access Expert Level 32
Versions: Recorded with Access 2016. Most of the material should work with all versions of Access from 2007 on.
Pre-Requisites: Access Expert Level 31 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, 46 Minutes
Cost: $26.99

This class covers a wide variety of topics that we didn't get to in any of the other Expert series classes. We will begin by working with report grouping headers. I will show you how to make a single letter header for your reports.

Next we will see how to generate a list of all of the reports in the database. We will use this list to create a custom form where the user can browse the list and then click a button to open that report. We will use a system-generated list first, and then I will show you a technique to create your own custom list so you can control what appears there.

Next we will spend some time with statistics. The RANK, MEDIAN, and MODE functions are easy to implement in Excel, but Access is surprisingly missing them. You need to learn how to work with something called SubQueries in order to generate these values. So, that's what we'll do in this lesson. We'll also learn how to calculate percentiles.

The upcoming Advanced series of Access lessons will focus on Macro Programming, so in today's class we're going to take a little preview so you can see what's to come. In this lesson, we're going to tackle one of the most commonly asked questions that I get: how to insert blank mailing labels on top of a label sheet. We'll learn a whole bunch of macro commands like GoToRecord, SetValue, InputBox, RunMenuCommand, and more.

This is the 32nd class in the Access Expert series. If you're serious about building quality databases with Access, and you have any interest in charts, 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.

Uriel R on 6/15/2016: Will the next Expert video explain how to use formulas from Excel in Access? I think it was mention during the comprehensive function videos, but I don't recall if it was done or not.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

This is more likely to be covered in the Developer series as it'll be using VBA.

Robert S on 6/23/2016: When will the handbook be available?
