Courses - Microsoft Access 326
Description: Advanced Access Recordsets
Running Time: 84 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Access 325 very strongly recommended
Previous Lesson: Access 325
Next Lesson: Access 327
Main Topics: Inventory, Quantity On Hand, OldValue, Stock Levels, Ship Date, OK To Ship, Lock Paid Orders, AllowEdits, AllowDeletions, AllowAdditions, Refund an Order
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.


We will be going back to our Order Form in this class. We'll begin by setting the whole order as LOCKED as soon as it's marked PAID. This way no further changes can be made to it.


Next we'll set up a REFUND button so that someone can take a paid order and mark it NOT paid, but at least its a separate step (and you can optionally put a password on it).


Next we'll add a ShipDate field and "Ship Order" button to the invoice. Click on the button, and the invoice will be marked SHIPPED.


Next we're going to start tracking inventory levels. We'll add a Quantity On Hand field to our product table and form.


We'll add a note in our System Log any time a user changes an inventory level so we can see EXACTLY where our products are going.


Next we'll examine a problem we have where if we add the same product multiple times, we get multiple line item entries in the order.


We'll write some VBA code so that if you click on Add Product multiple times for the same product, it just increments the Quantity field. This is a much nicer result.


Next we'll start working on the process of shipping an order. First, we'll check stock levels. If we can't ship an order because we don't have enough inventory, the database will yell at you.


Now we'll write the code to actually remove the items from inventory once they're shipped. This all happens behind the scenes, but it updates your product table.
