Create Buttons to Change a Date Field in Access
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'll show you how to create little buttons to move a date field up or down a day or week with a single click.
Carly from Chandler, Arizona (a Platinum Member) asks: I spend a lot of time changing dates for appointments. I usually have to push them back a day or two, or move them back a week or two. Typing the date in, or even using the little calendar popup thingy is a pain. Is there any way I can just make a button that says "move this appointment back 1 week?"
Members will learn how to make a global function that can be called from any form in the database to change any field. We will call the function as an event property. We will use a DateAdd compatible combo box to specify the interval.
