2. Discover how to launch queries from VBA code
3. Create Aliases for your field and table names
4. Learn the different types of Table Joins
5. Construct a Union query
6. Work with a Crosstab query
7. Perform calculations in your SQL statements
8. Explore the different Aggregate query functions
9. Utilize string, math, time/date, and other query functions

When I run the VendorPriceUpdateF, and select a Category from the Category List Combo, no items appear in the List Box.
I've done the lesson twice and end up with exactly the same problem.
I'm using Access from Office 365 and do find that there are very small differences compared to Access 2010. Not sure what the issue is.

Ina -
Nine times out of ten I find that I have a typo if things are not running properly. Quote in the wrong place or parentheses not correct, etc.  It's really hard to help you trouble shoot what is happening when we cant see what you have.
please copy and post your SQL here and that will help us move forward.

Also, open the tables and verify for yourself that you do indeed have data that should be showing up.  If there is truly no matching data that would be a whole different issue.

Are you receiving any error messages?

Hi Scott, when the form opens all the items are listed in the List Box. When I select a specific category, the list box is empty with no error message.

CategoryCombo SQL
Private Sub LogIt(Description As String, Notes As String)

    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO LogT (Description, Notes) " & _
        "SELECT '" & Description & "', '" & Notes & "'"
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)

    LogIt "Price Update Form Opened", "Blah"
End Sub

Private Sub RefreshProductList()

      If IsNull(CategoryCombo) Then
        WhereStr = ""
        WhereStr = "WHERE Category = " & CategoryCombo & " "
    End If

ProductList.RowSource = "SELECT ProductIDID, ProductCode, ProductName, " & _
        "Category, LastUpdated, UnitPrice, NewPrice, Profit " & _
        "FROM ProductVendorNewPricingQ, " & _
        WhereStr & _
        "ORDER BY ProductName;"

End Sub

Private Sub CategoryC

Hello Everyone, I have tried everything I can to get the MarkUp field to show up as a percent after switching the Category. Starts off as 20.00% but shows up as 0.05, 0.75, or 0.80 depending on which product is selected. Is this just a bug in Access 2016 or am I missing something? Thanks Joe

It's tough to say what's wrong without seeing your database. Make sure you've got the value set up as a floating point number in the table (double, preferably) and then set the format as Percent. Remember the FORM's formatting will override anything in the table.

Product List Blank Upload Images   Link

In lesson 10, after following the video many times when I open ProductTopF my product list is blank. Any ideas for I've even started from scrach by creating a new blank form and follwed the video with the code line by line but the Product List is opening blank. If I place Order by as ProductList I get the list populated - any suggestions?

Hi John. Without seeing your database it's almost impossible to tell you what you did wrong. Hundreds of people have taken this seminar without having this problem so it's most likely something you spelled wrong. Try removing the "TOP" clause and see if it works then.
