Calculate Cubic Volume in Microsoft Access
In this video, I will show you how to take height, width, and depth and calculate the cubic volume of an area in Microsoft Access. Good for landscaping and anything else that requires you to perform volume calculations.
James from Pelham, Georgia (a Silver Member) asks: I own a landscaping company. My jobs require me to calculate materials like mulch, rock, etc. in length, width, and depth based on the customer's property. For example, if we are putting down colored mulch in a plant bed that is 12'x6'x2" then I would need to calculate how much mulch I would need. If a bag of mulch is 2 cubic feet, how many bags would I need? Can you set up a "calculator" form in Access to do this?
Members will see how to create a form for this data, perform the calculations in VBA code, and convert between multiple units: inches, feet, miles, meters, kilometers, etc.
