Microsoft Access Templates

Templates are pre-designed database templates that you can use to accomplish your goals. Some include a video tutorial explaining how the template was built. Some are the database-only version of a longer Seminar, and you will need to purchase the Seminar to get instructions. Some are free. Some are not. For a complete description of each template, click on the links below. Templates work with Access 2007 and later, unless otherwise noted.

I am in need of an embedded Calendar for an access form. I viewed your video on embedded calendars. As a gold member, I am searching the code vault for this template. Please stir me in the right direction. Thank you.

Vacation Time Template Upload Images   Link

I've been looking but haven't found a good Vacation Time template. Looked for databases and/or Excel documents.
Say employee gets 40 hrs PTO on Jan 1, if it isn't all used, it is lost. They also accrue Vacation time over the years, this balance carries over (At company less than 5 years, carry over 40 hrs, at company more than 5 years, carry over 80 hrs. Vacation is added every two weeks at 3.08 hrs. When time is taken, it is subtracted from PTS until that = 0, then it is taken from Vacation amount.

That would definitely be a good idea for a template/seminar. I'll add it to the list. I'm sure you COULD build something like that after having completed my course - even just up through the Expert series. But yeah, I could see that being a helpful template.

If anyone else is interested, click the LIKE button on this comment. That's how I gauge user interest. More likes = more likely I'll build it soon. :)

I've been working in Access for around 20 years now. I've just found your site about a year ago. I've just begun watching your Access 2010 Beginner Series. Figured it would be a good refresher and I might even be reminded of things I'm not doing in the best manner. A way to clean up any bad habits I may have developed over the years.

Thanks for putting the idea on your list. Here's to hoping it gets lots of likes and becomes a seminar.

Yep. Always check the SEARCH box for stuff you're looking for. I don't always update stuff as much as I should (like the Templates listing) but the search engine will usually find it. Appointments

If a template is listed as a SAMPLE that means it's a full working copy of the final database, but as an ACCDE file you cannot modify its structure. You should still be able to add/edit data. You must run ANY database from a Trusted Location in order for it to work fully.

Are there any instructions on how to download and what to do with the sample templates so I might be able to use them?
  Am I able to enter my data into these sample templates?

Is there a particular Template you were wanting to try.

Just click the link and it should just download. There are also links to some of the templates on the course pages.

All will allow data entry.
If it's an ".accdb" file you can edit the tables, add fields etc
If it's an ".accde" then just data entry.

That all depends on the template. They're all different. Check the specific page for each template for instructions and details. Some are free. Some are for sale. Some have video instructions, while others do not. Some have an associated Seminar that go with them. For example, the Mailing Labels Template can be purchased by itself for one price if you just want to use the template and don't need the instructional videos (Seminar) that go with it. A lot of the paid templates have free "sample" databases you can download to test them and enter data, but since they're ACCDE files you can't modify the design unless you purchase them. So, the short answer to your question is: it depends. :)
