Display Favorite Customers on Your Main Menu
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.

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.
