Switch Function

Use the Switch Function as an Alternative to Nested IIFs

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

Learn how to use the Switch function as an alternative to multiple nested IIF functions in your Microsoft Access databases.

Shannon from Chicago IL (a Gold Member) asks: I have a few query statements that are super long because they are IIF functions with multiple nested options. Is there any way to shorten that down so it's not so complicated?


I'll show you how to create a global function to calculate family size with a Select Case VBA statement. This is so that you don't have to copy your Switch function to multiple places.

Silver Members and up get access to an Extended Cut of this video. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!

Here's a TechHelp video I recorded back in November and actually uploaded it to YouTube, but I forgot to post it to my own web site. Enjoy!
