Access Calendar Seminar
Create Monthly Calendars in Microsoft Access
If you've ever wanted to print monthly calendars from your Access databases, then this seminar is perfect for you.
This seminar covers creating an appointment database in Microsoft Access. You will create a form that looks like an actual monthly calendar, that you can review your appointments on. Then, when you're ready to print, just pick a month, and the report is generated. Click here for a video showing what's covered in this seminar:
Main Seminar Goals
You will begin by creating a basic table to store our appointment data. We'll also make a simple form to edit and add new records.
Next we'll build an appointment list form, where we can see all of our appointments. Double-click on an appointment to open and edit it. We'll also make a checkbox to allow us to see open vs. closed appointments (close it when you're done with it). You'll also learn about triple-state checkboxes where you can see open, closed, and ALL records.
In the next lessons we'll build a form to pick a date using a built-in Microsoft Access ActiveX Calendar control. Using this date, we'll generate our own form that looks like a full-sized monthly calendar, complete with all of our appointments on it.
One of the things we're going to learn how to do is make the first day on our calendar form figure out what the first Sunday on or before the start of the month is, then build the rest of the calendar accordingly, greying out any days that are before or after the selected month. We'll tackle that with a little bit of VBA programming.
Of course, you'll be able to double-click on any appointment on the calendar to open up a popup form to edit that appointment.
Then, once the form is completed, we'll create the printable monthly calendar report. We'll actually make two versions - I'll show you how to lay it out portrait and landscape.
This is a Developer-Level Seminar. There will be a lot of VBA. It is strongly recommended that you have completed my entire Access Beginner and Expert series. My Developer 1 class is highly recommended so you understand the basics of programming in VBA. If not, at least watch my free Intro to VBA video.
I am using Access 2007 in this seminar, however the lessons are perfectly valid for all versions of Access with a few minor addendums that I have noted on the Lessons Page. It's currently 2022 and I just made sure everything works fine with Access 2019 and Office 365.
