Pre-Requisites: Access 305 very strongly recommended
Previous Lesson: Access 305
Next Lesson: Access 307

Versions: This course is valid for Access 2000 through 2003. If you are using Access 2007 or 2010, you will still benefit from this course. You will find that the concepts are the same, but there are cosmetic differences between the versions.


Access 306 continues our advanced Access database development with VBA programming.

This lesson focuses calculating employee commission rates and pay rates. Sounds easy? Well we will learn about all kinds of new concepts like DMax, Me.Requery, InputBox, nested IIF functions, and much more.

We will calculate an employee's commission paid based on his commission rate using an IIF function:


We'll learn how to use DMAX to calculate the commission that he should be paid - based on his sales - according to our commission table.


We'll create a form to just show Paid Commissions, Unpaid Commissions, or both. We'll learn the Me.Requery command to refresh the form results when the box is checked or unchecked.


We'll create a report we can print out to see all of the commissions our sales reps need to be paid.


We'll make a button that we can then click on to mark all of the commissions as PAID, and we'll throw in a little "Are You Sure?" message box prompt.


We'll create a button on our Main Menu form with a PASSWORD on it. This way someone has to type in the password in order to open the employee commission form or report.


Next we'll work on employee pay rates. We'll learn how to calculate regular and overtime hours, which will let us calculate regular and overtime pay.
