Microsoft Access Expert 17
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   8 years ago

Microsoft Access Expert Level 17 is 1 hour, 37 minutes long. In this class we will continue working with Action Queries. We will also do more with Union Queries, and we will begin working with Crosstab Queries, which are very similar to Excel PivotTables. We will create a project to tie all of the Action Query techniques we've learned together by archiving old unpaid orders from our system to a backup archive. Topics include:

- Archive Old Unpaid Orders
- Select & Mark Orders w Update Query
- Create a Form to Review Orders
- Append to Archive Table w Macro
- Backup Customers, Orders, Details
- Add "Write-Off" Notice to Customer Rec
- UNION Query for Reporting on Both
- More with Embedded Button Macros
- CrossTab Queries (like PivotTables)

Click here for more information on Access Expert Level 17, including a course outline, sample videos, and more. This course was recorded using Access 2013, but is also valid for Access 2007 and 2010 users. This class follows Expert Level 16. The next class in the series is Access Expert 18.

Hi Richard,
After adding the last query to the macro for the "Archive Old Orders" button, I get a "Enter Parameter Value" description box when I click on the Archive Old Orders button. I have reviewed the E17-3 video for the order of the seven open queries in the macro and rechecked the UpdateOrderWriteOffQ. The error number is 2950. I even deleted UpdateOrderWriteOffQ from the macro and added it again. I closed the database and Access--reopened everything and still get the message. I don't have to enter anything into the description box of Enter Parameter value. I just click ok and it runs and makes the updates. I check the OrderT and the description field is updated.

Robert -
Richard has said many many times - 99.99% of the time when you get that error there is a misspelling or other typo.

Try running the queries individually manually to see which is giving you the error.  The "Enter Parameter Value" message is telling you exactly what the problem is.  The reason you get that (unless you intentionally put it in there to get user input ) is because access is telling you - "Hey I can't find that item - Please put in the value you want from me".

My years in accounts payable and procurement wouldn't let me get past this.  So I had to change it.  Nothing wrong with the queries, they all worked as designed.  You wouldn't write off a Quote, you would either close it or give it an expiration date.  But, you would write off an unpaid invoice after a certain amount of time.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. Maybe I'll include this in a future version of the class, when I have time to re-record it in 2035. LOL

After going through lesson Lesson 17.3 and 26 years of working in Accounts Payable and Procurement I came back here to modify this query.  Nothing wrong with the queries in either lesson.  In order to accommodate my changes I made to the queries in 17.3 I needed to change this query also.

Careful... watch your spelling: IsQuoatation

The number 1 problem people have (and I get the most questions about) usually turns out to be a spelling error somewhere.

I was wonder how the Archive files got updated since I didn't see the Archive Append queries loaded in the buttons.

I'm sorry, Vince, but I don't understand what you mean. Can you give me a little more information, and possibly a time index so I can review what you're talking about. I recorded this 7 years ago, so you'll need to refresh my memory. :)

In Expert 17 Lesson 2 we created the AppendOrderDetailArchiveQ and the AppendOrderArchiveQ.  We tested them out and got the bugs out and they worked. Then in Lesson 4 when it came time to imbed them in the Perform Archive button I dont see them listed.  When the button was run, it looks like the Archive tables were updated, but I think we are looking at the test runs from Lesson 2.

Course Ideas Upload Images   Link

Since you are always encouraging us to send you ideas for future courses, here are a couple of ideas for your consideration. First, you might consider putting together a seminar on queries with particular emphasis on multiple table queries and all the things that can go wrong. We've used multiple table queries throughout the Expert series, but I think that it would be really good to take a deep dive into what is happening behind the scenes inside of Access - having this insight would make users much more confident I think. I would include an entire session on bad queries - for example, ambiguous outer joins and Cartesian products. I think there is just so much you can do with queries to make a solid class or seminar.

Mr. Rost, I have taken every class starting from Beginner-1 through here Expert-17.  I must say, Expert-17 is hands-down my favorite so far.  I feel a major breakthrough has occurred for me personally.  Just thought I'd say Thank You!  I am excited about the remainder of the expert series and eventually the advanced/developer series' as well.  Again, just wanted to say THANKS!

Duplicate Output Destination Upload Images   Link

Access 2013 Expert 17 Video:2 at 15:19 time forward you ran into the Duplicate Out Put Destination Error for ToBeArchived field. you later explain that in the Append Query each field needs to be listed separately if you are using one of the fields as Criteria. I have found in my working with Access that by removing the Append To reference to the duplicate field it works just fine with no error

I can confirm also that by removing the Append to reference in the original ToBeArchived query that you do not get the Duplicate output destination error and the query works as intended.  Office 365
