Introduction to Visual Basic for Applications
In this video, I'm going to teach you how to start programming in Microsoft Access VBA. If you've never done any programming before, don't worry. I'll show you how to get started and walk you through it step by step. We will learn how to work with the VBA Editor, create a MsgBox, learn how to open a form with DoCmd.OpenForm, and set a value in a form field.
Patricia from Ann Arbor, Michigan (a Platinum Member) asks: I've seen in several of your TechHelp videos where you mention "you can do this with a couple lines of code." I've been using Access for a few years, but I've never done any VBA programming before. Can you tell me where do I put this code, and how do I get started?
Members will learn how to create a button to open a form to a specific record. We'll put a customer list box on the main menu. Pick a customer, click the button, and that customer's record will open. Then we'll learn about Event programming. We'll use the On Double Click event to do the same thing by just double-clicking on that customer list box. Then we'll learn about the If / Then / Else statement. If the user doesn't pick a customer from the list and then click the open button, then they will get an error message. Lots more too!
