Microsoft Access Expert 22
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   7 years ago

Microsoft Access Expert Level 22 is 2 hours, 3 minutes long. In this class we will learn how to fix non-relational spreadsheet data that we have to import into our database, creating multiple related tables. We will also learn how to import vendor price updates for our products, and we will fix our order-entry system so that product price changes no longer affect previously placed orders. Topics include:

- Fixing Non-Relational Data
- Split a Spreadsheet into Multiple Tables
- Update Vendor Price Sheet Changes
- Create Macro for One-Click Operation
- Fix Our Order-Entry System
- Product Changes No Longer Affect Orders
- Build New Button Macro From Scratch
- IF, GotoControl, GotoRecord Commands
- Manually Add Products Not In Database

Click here for more information on Access Expert Level 22, 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 21. The next class in the series is Expert Level 23.

An additional fix to the order entry system would be to the order detail archive process. Now that the unit price and product name are part of the order detail table.  We need to add those additional fields to the OrderDetailArchive table as well.  The archive will fail if the table is not updated as the AppendOrderDetailArchive query uses the star to bring in all fields and the archive table wouldn't have matching fields.

Yep. Good catch. One of the problems with building a system like this is that it's designed to be a TEACHING database, so there's a lot of "real world" stuff that I don't always show in class.

Hey Richard, I downloaded the student file a few times just to make sure there wasn't a glitch in the download process.  Each file I download gives me an error: "Unexpected error is keeping you copying file. Use error code to help with problem."  The error code is: "Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error."

Hey Richard, I believe it might have something to do with the password.  I went to Extract Expert 23 Student file and the same message popped up.  The password box popped up over the error message within a second and allowed me to put in the password for Expert 23 and I can access the files.  I tried Expert 22 file again and waited, but no password box popped up.  Sorry, to bother you on the weekend.  No rush of course, I was just going back through lessons and files.  Have a great weekend!

Hi Pete. I know corrupted files sometimes happen. They happen quite often with my large (over 100 MB, 30 minute) videos. However, I just downloaded this file and extracted it just fine. Worked fine for me the first time. Remember, you have to save the ZIP file, then EXTRACT the files to a folder with the password. Don't just try to open the files from inside the ZIP without first extracting them. There's a reason why I got rid of these passwords with all of my new courses. They're annoying. The problem is re-uploading all of my old classes will take a TON of time, so I'm getting to them as I can.

How would you like to add the product? Something has to trigger it. You could do an AfterUpdate event for the combo box, but then you might add more products than you want accidentally.

By the time now I don't really know what an after update event is, but I would want to double click the Combobox and it should be added, if by accident the product will be added twice "then" I would want to have a button to erase the last record, so by accepting an order I won't need to click on 2 buttons but click twice when a mistake has been made...

Hi Alex. Thanks for your reply. I actually submitted a comment/question twice by accident. On the first one I accidentally pressed enter instead of backspace, submitting it before my question was complete. My second comment/question was more detailed. Is it possible to possible to have a ProductCombo in the  detail section that is not directly tied to (or live with) the ProductT such that price changed in the ProductT do not effect all the orders?  And if the answer is yes, when/where is this taught? In advanced/VBA lessons? Read More...

Hi. Thanks for the lesson. Regarding the OrderDetailF: Is it possible to have a ProductCombo in the line item of the Detail section instead of in the Form Footer (with an "Add Product" button) and still have the same result, i.e., the product price is no longer directly tied to the ProductT. If yes, where/when do you teach this? Advance lesson? Thanks.

Tip for everyone-
At 24:13 there is an easy way to get around this small issue to have a vender name sorted by its ID.  
If you were to add the VenderT to your query and link it to your import query with the IDs being related you can then Read More...

I am interested too, in seeing a lesson on Appending new products from a Vendor to ProductT via import. I see above the same  inquiry of other students and I would like to inform me if there has already been created this  lesson or it is going to be created in the future.

I used a different approach.  I made sure the Excel sheet was sorted by order date before importing.  Let Access assign primary key as ID on import.  Used MAX(ID) instead of MAX(Order Date) to create the Customer list with latest data, then joined to Sheet 1 to get the most current address and phone.  Does anyone see a downside to this?

I now have the Dlookup working in "Update Vendor Pricing", I done this by adding the "ID" Field From "VendorXProductT" to Query "ImportProductPricingXYZWholeSaleQ" Looking back on the video It seems I did miss the part where he added the ID field in, so I will go back on the the previuos lesson and its more then likely an error on my part, spent a lot of time on this part of the course, the upside is, I do now know the Dlookup Function inside out and a few off the problems that can come with it, this one needs to be obsolutly spot on.
