Yes/No Fields

Yes/No Fields, Check Boxes, Toggle, Count Totals

In this video, I will show you how to properly use yes/no fields in your Microsoft Access databases. We will set up the table fields, and work with them in our forms. We will see how to use check boxes, toggle buttons, combo boxes, list boxes, and text boxes with yes/no values. We will then learn how to set up a query to show the total of all of the YES values. 

Paige from Rockport, Texas (a Gold Member) asks: For each of my customers, we have six different products they might be interested in. I have these set up as six separate yes/no fields in my customer table with check boxes on my customer form. Can these be drop-down boxes instead? Also, how can I get a count of how many customers are interested in each product?


Members will learn how to change the caption and color properties of a toggle button so it shows that it's on or off more clearly. We will also learn how to properly use a separate related table to store customer groupings instead of using yes/no fields in the customer table. We will then take the improperly built customer table with the yes/no fields and convert over to the new system with action queries.
