Switchboards, Navigation Forms, Menu Forms

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to create a Switchboard, a Navigation Form, and my personal favorite method of navigating around a database which is to create custom Menu Forms. Plus, I'll show you a cool special trick for your Menu Form navigation.

Charlotte from Auckland, New Zealand (a Platinum Member) asks: What is the best way to create an interface for my users to navigate the different forms and reports in my database? Switchboard? Navigation Forms? Something else?


Members will learn how to open forms directly to the right, or underneath the parent form. This is handy for creating menus where the forms may move around the screen. You can control the form's exact positioning from the calling form.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
