Update Query Product Prices Upload Images   Link   Email  
Abraham Breuer

you mentioned in the lesson that an update query is usefulto add 5% to active products.
my question is since there are orders which were orderedwhen the price wasn'tadded to 5% will they also be updated? if the answer is yes, this might mess up all passedorders with a wrong price

Very good observation. Yes, that is true. This is one of the problems with building a "teaching" database. Right now, as you figured out, your orders are directly related to your products. So if you make a change to one of the product's details (like name or price) then all of your orders are effected. Later on, in Access Expert 22, I show you how to fix this by copying product details to the order detail table as you create the order. It requires VBA or a macro, which is why I cover it later. There's nothing wrong with the current method, except you cannot make changes to products once they're used on orders.
