Courses - Microsoft Access 328
Description: Advanced Access Recordsets
Running Time: 81 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Access 327 very strongly recommended
Previous Lesson: Access 327
Next Lesson: Access 329
Main Topics: Reorder Levels, Vendor Info, Purchase Orders, Triple State Check Boxes
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'll begin by adding reorder levels and vendor information to our product table, so we know when we should order more of a product, and from whom to order it.


We'll add this information to our Product List form, so we can quickly see at a glance what products need to be ordered. A little Conditional Formatting makes those items stand out.


We'll create a Purchase Order table to track items that are On Order. Next we'll make an "Order More" button on our product list form.


The system will prompt us for how many items to order.


The items then get added to the Purchase Order table. We'll build a form where we can review all of the items that are to be ordered, filtered by vendor.


We'll finish up the purchase order, including a printable report, in the next class, Access 329.
