Create, Print Documents from Microsoft Access
In this video, I'll show you how to create documents in Microsoft Access. I don't just mean Access-generated reports. I'm also including documents that are based on existing printed forms you may have. You'll see how to select a document from a list in a combo box (or scan in a barcode) and have the document print to your default printer or preview on the screen. We'll also see how to populate these documents with data from your tables.
Windle from Williamsburg, Virginia (a Developer student) asks: I took your Barcode Seminar. Is there a way to scan a barcode and have Access print a specific document? I manage a pharmacy and would love to place a barcode on medication bottles that triggers the printing of patient educational materials when scanned.
Members will see how to print Word Documents, PDFs, and pretty much any other type of external file using my PrintFile function.
