Microsoft Access Inspections Database Template
This database is put together to track home inspections, but you can use it for vehicle inspections, or pretty much whatever kind of inspections you want. It's based on my TechHelp Template so it's already got customers, contact management, and order entry. Now, we're adding inspections to it as well.
You can specify different locations, such as bedrooms, the kitchen, living room, etc. Each location can have different categories such as electrical, plumbing, flooring, etc. Each category can have multiple items, such as the appliances, doors, etc. And each item can have multiple issues. Flooring for example might have torn carpets, broken tiles, etc. It's fully customizable to your needs and specifications.
You can download a sample copy of the database to play with absolutely free, if you want to just use it and give it a try, and see if it works for you. Of course if you purchase the template you get the unlocked version. You can make any changes that you want. You get the complete source code.
There is a free 26 minute video, above, that walks you through all the features, how to set up all the locations, the categories, items, and issues. I've also got lots of other videos explaining how a lot of this stuff works like, for example, many to many relationships, nested continuous sub forms, and so on.
If you'd like to download a sample copy of the database template, you can do so here. This is a NON-EDITABLE version of the template which will let you see it work in action. The sample database requires 64-bit Access 2013 or higher.

Someone on my YouTube channel commented, "Rick, without the ability to use it on a tablet/phone, makes this almost useless. Nobody wants to write everything down on paper and go to a computer to add it to an application." This is true. However, my reply is to simply use a tablet that runs Windows. I found one on Amazon that should run Access OK and it's under $200. Here's another one. I've always prefered Lenovo myself. They're a little more expensive, but worth it.
