Access Tip: Form / SubForm
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   12 years ago

Q: I need to be able to track my students in a database along with what courses each student is enrolled for, and what date the course begins. How would I go about doing this?

I teach the concepts in this free mini tutorial in my Access 202 course. These are full courses - over 60 minutes in length each. I spend a lot more time going over how to do this, in addition to lots more tips and tricks.

Travione, I cover basic form creation in my Access 101 through 104 tutorials, but there's a LOT to it. It's not hard, but making good forms is more of an art than a science. :)
