Access Expert Level 3
Description: Access Expert Level 3
Versions: This class was recorded with Microsoft Access 2010. The material is valid for Access 2007 up to 2021.
Pre-Requisites: Access Expert Level 2
Running Time: 1 Hour, 26 Minutes
Cost: $21.99

This class picks up where Expert Level 2 left off. We'll begin by learning about SQL (Structured Query Language) which is the code behind all of the queries, forms, and combo boxes in your database. You'll learn about the basic components of an SQL statement. You don't have to learn how to write your own SQL at this point, but I want to teach you enough so you can modify the SQL that Access provides for you. It adds a lot of power and flexibility to your database.


In the last two classes, we built a Contacts form to track the previous contact history with our customers. In today's class we'll modify it a bit so we can track callbacks for those customers. Need to call Joe Smith tomorrow at 9am? We'll put that into the callback form and tomorrow you can quickly generate a list of everyone you need to call. It's a way to reuse a single table with similar data for multiple purposes.


Next we'll learn about something that's VERY powerful in Access: the subform. This is a way for you to show related records inside another form. For example, wouldn't it be nice if you could see the last couple of contacts for a customer right on the customer form without having to open another form up? That's what a subform does for you.


Finally, we'll learn how to calculate totals in a form footer. We'll create a products form, a product category form, embed products as a subform, and then create some footer totals to show inventory levels.



This is the third class in the Access Expert series. If you want to take your database skills to the next level, this is the class for you. Understanding subforms and form footer totals are important tools to the success of your projects. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
