Access Event Countdown Reminder Popup Form
Never miss a deadline again! In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'll show you how to build an event countdown reminder form. You can add events to a table, and when your database starts up, a form will automatically pop up showing you how many days you have left until each of your events. We'll also make buttons to easily close the form, edit an event, add new events, or delete events - complete with an "are you sure?" prompt. While this database can't help you prepare for these events, at least it will help you to not miss them.
Meghan from Albany, Georgia (a Gold Member) asks: It seems I'm always missing events. Yeah, I put them on my calendar, and I set alarms, but I'm always dismissing them and forgetting about important stuff. Is there any way I could have Access pop a huge reminder in my face that says "you have that conference in 2 days!" It would be nice if I could see the next 3 or 4 things coming up so I know what's going on. Thanks.
Members will learn how to create different custom color schemes using Conditional Formatting and apply one to each event.
