Microsoft Access Search Template. Sort. Filter.
Introducing the Access Search Template from Access Learning Zone. This template has everything you need to be able to search and sort by any field in a Microsoft Access continuous form.
It includes one of the most popular features from my very successful Access Search Seminar. Lots of people tell me they want this functionality, but they don't want to watch nine hours of video. So, here's the most popular feature from that Seminar in a quick, easy-to-use Template.
If you'd like to download a sample copy of the database template, you can do so here. This is a non-editable ACCDE version of the template which will let you see it work in action. You can enter/edit data, but you cannot access the design of the forms, reports, VBA, etc. The sample database requires 64-bit Access 2013 or higher. If you're still using 32-bit Office, read this. Be sure to watch the Introduction video (above) to see how to use it.
Full Developer Database
Once you have purchased the full developer database template, come back to this page and click on the Download button below. This will give you access to the ZIP file containing the Template ACCDB file. The full version will run on 32-bit or 64-bit Access 2007 or higher. Be sure to watch the Integration Instructions video (above), and visit the Instructions page.
The Search Template includes one of the most popular features from my Access Search Seminar. You can sort any field with a single click (click again to sort descending). Filter any field (equals, like, or range search). Triple-state checkbox for yes/no fields.
Sort by any field with a single click.
Click again to sort descending.
Filter by any field, multiple fields. Select And/Or conditions.
This is not a seminar, so I don't explain all of the source code and how it was written. I do, however, include step-by-step integration instructions, both in writing and as a video. This will allow you to set up your database to use my code. It's just configuring your fields, copying & pasting some code, and putting the pieces in place where I show you. Easy to do.
So that's the Access Search Template. This template is easy to integrate into your existing databases. There are 13 steps which are all written out and explained in a video. I do strongly recommend you at least watch my free Intro to VBA tutorial before purchasing this template so you have a basic understanding of VBA.
As of right now, I don't have any plans to make videos showing how the code was written, as there is a lot of high-end VBA in it. If you are interested in me releasing this as a Seminar where I show how it was constructed (or at least walk thru the code) I would be happy to make one if there is enough interest.

You may not resell or distribute any form of this database to others without express written permission.

Additional licenses are required if you plan on using this database with more than ten (10) employees within your organization.
Customize For Your Needs
If you would like to discuss customizing this database for your needs, and integrating it into your current setup, please see my consulting page for details. While I no longer accept custom jobs that are specific to a single user, I may include your features in a future version of this template if they have mass appeal. If you are looking for custom enhancements made to this template just for you, visit my Access Developer Network.
Please note that technical support is NOT guaranteed for any of my courses, seminars, or templates. If you require help with modifying this template, you may post a question in the Forums, however an answer to your question is not guaranteed. If this template comes with an accompanying Seminar, then you should purchase that Seminar to see how the database was constructed. If not, then you should have taken the suggested courses. Most of my templates are designed on a Developer level and you should have a thorough understanding of SQL and VBA before attempting to modify them.
