Manage Rental Inventory
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   8 months ago

Manage Rental Inventory. Check In/Out Items, Books, Videos, Tools.

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

Learn how to check out rental inventory items, and automatically return any items to your rental inventory once the due date has passed. 

Graham from South Africa (a Gold Member) asks: I have a very simple inventory requirement. Items are checked out, and then once their due date arrives, I just want Access to automatically check them back into inventory. That's it. Can this be done in a daily event?


We'll make an actual check in / check out system for each item. You can mark which customer checked out the item, the due date, see rental history, and more!

Hey, I been working on a Service Based Database that Tracks Product (Chemicals & Fertilizers) Applications and Activities. I have created two Tables for the Chemicals and Fertilizer and their Activities and Applications. I am wondering if I should combined the Tables and Forms together to one. Also, wondering what's the best way to do the "Tracking, Appling, and Showing the Activities of the Products"?

James the best answer is a definite maybe.  I don't quite understand the terminology you are using - "activities of the products".

I do understand a little bit (I think) if what you're trying to do. One of my former partners had a lawn care service.  The reason I recommended the Work Order Seminar.

With Access you can be as simple or as granular as you need to be.
Thing is I would combine all of your items in to one table that you are selling.
Whether you invoice for 1 Application or 3 hours of labor / application.  The next line item might be 4 lbs 10-10-10 poultry fert. The next might be mowing,  10K sq/ft  Understand?
The products and services can be broken out how ever you need but all the "items" you offer go in your products table whether it's widgets or services.

Then down the line you can go back through, using reports, to show the items you need to track.
You has x hours of labor, used y lbs. of pre-emergent, z gals of ground clear.  And so on.

Check out the Chef's Kitchen Helper video.   It might help you to think outside the box a bit.
Apply the things you use and do to making a recipe.  

Also look at the {1515} if you haven't already.

Dear Richard,
I have several properties and I need something to help me follow all my tenants as well as knowing anytime what is rented and not rented and getting of each property
following my income and my expenses.

Sounds like an excellent idea for a Seminar. I've been asked for something like this a couple of times before. I'll definitely add it to the list. Keep learning. You could build something like this easily yourself after, I'd say, Access Expert 2. Finish the Beginner series and after the first couple of Expert classes you'll know enough about relationships to start building something yourself. :)
