Developer 19 continues our coverage of Recordsets and other topics. We will learn how to create bound multi-select listboxes, nested recordset loops, and the Chef's Kitchen Helper.
In Lesson 1, we will learn about the different types of recordsets that you can open (Table, Dynaset, Snapshot, Forward-Only). We will then create a "bound" multi-select listbox. It's not really bound to a field in the table, because you can't do that, but we'll make it look like it is.
In Lesson 2, we will continue working with that "bound" list box. We'll save the items selected in the list box if we move off the record or close the form, utilizing the Dirty property.
In Lesson 3, we will learn how to create nested recordsets. We will loop through customers and display customer names with all of their individual contact records as well. One loop inside of another.
In Lesson 4, we will learn how to use a query to determine what dishes you can make based on the available ingredients. Not limited to just the kitchen. You can use this to calculate needed components for any product that involves multiple parts. Whether you're selling food, computers, or machine shop parts, these techniques work for everyone.
In Lesson 5, we will learn how to look at the actual quantity of the products you have on the shelf and calculate if you have enough to make a dish. Instead of just "yes, I have eggs" you can say "I have 12 eggs" and calculate accordingly.
In Lesson 6, we will learn how to do the same thing that we did in Lesson 5, but this time using nested recordsets. We will also fill an unbound listbox with the dishes that we are able to make.
In Lesson 7, we will learn how to select an item from the dishes we can possibly make, and then with one click remove the products that make up that dish from our pantry. Basic inventory control.
