Build an On-Screen Calculator in Access - Part 6
This is part 6 of my Microsoft Access on-screen calculator tutorial. We are continuing to build the calculator that we started in part 1. In today's video we're going to learn how to make the memory value persistent even if the calculator form closes and is reopened, or even if the database itself is closed and reopened. We'll look at variables and their scope, learn how to set up a public global variable, and then we'll use TempVars to store the persistent memory value. We'll learn how to bind that value to a table field. We'll also talk about tab cycle and we'll make a custom image for the background of our calculator form so it looks super cool.
There is no extended cut, but here is the database file:
