Favorite Customers

Display Favorite Customers on Your Main Menu

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I'll teach you how to create a "Favorite Customers" list box on your Main Menu form. This way you can just double-click on a customer to go right to their account. Quick and easy!

Katrina from Barcelona, Spain (a Gold Member) asks: I have five to ten customers I contact on a regular basis, some daily. Is there a way I can make a list of my favorite customers and have a quick way to open their accounts from my Main Menu?


I'll show you how to track which customers you view the most, and which you have most recently viewed. This way you can change the favorites list to show the most recent customers and the customers you've opened the most. We'll also see how to automatically requery that list box when it gets focus. 

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. 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!


After I posted the video, I realized you may want to put the following line in the code at the top of the OnCurrent event in the CustomerF form:

   If IsNull(CustomerID) then Exit Sub

Otherwise, every time you open a blank, new record, Access will save the data to the table, creating blank records at the end of your customer table. Sorry.
