Access Developer Forum

This is a Forum for students in my Access Developer courses. Yes, you can still post questions in the comments section of the individual courses, but I will be using this Forum to post general notifications, ideas for future lessons, etc.

I recommend you subscribe to this Forum if you're interested in getting these kinds of updates. I'm not going to send out individual emails for everything.

Bill of Materials Upload Images   Link

Someone recently posted this as a comment on my YouTube page. I was planning on getting to this eventually, but I wanted to see how many of you were interested in it? If more than a few, I'll cover it sooner rather than later.

Looking to how to create a Bill of Materials system (BOM).  This is where a part (assembly) contains other parts and/or sub-assemblies, which may contain their own parts or sub-assemblies, which can contain their own . . .  So, any part may be a child of another part with a certain quantity, and be a child of another part with a different quantity, and may have several levels of hierarchy.  How do you set that up with tables and nested forms to show the full list of parts, regardless of numbers of levels?

My Reply:

That would definitely be a good topic for one of my advanced Developer classes. It will involve nested recordsets. I'll add it to the list.

I would definitely be interested in seeing this as well.  This could probably be applied to the Assets Management seminar as part of the second installment???

I will defenetly be getting into this,  and if this developer class does happen, can we add the bar code to it for tracking?
I was thinking of something like this!
WOW another JEDI mind trick...LOL or is it a mind Vucan meld ?

Barcoding is definitely coming. That's been on the back burner FOREVER now, but I really want to get that done.

Vulcan mind meld, my man. The Jedi are cool and all, but only the first two movies were any good. The rest were Meh at best. Star Trek has DECADES of fantastic material.

Would this be different from your video on nested continuous forms?

Yes. Completely different. Probably will have to use a Treeview or something like it.
