Access Developer Level 1
Versions: This class was recorded with Microsoft Access 2016. The material is valid for Access 2007 up to 2021. Access has not changed that much over the years.
Pre-Requisites: Access Advanced Level 6 strongly recommended, as you should watch all of my classes in order. However, if you're skipping around, you should have at least completed the Beginner series and the first 3 or 4 levels of the Expert series where I start to cover functions.
Running Time: 1 Hour, 15 Minutes
Cost: $39.99

This class begins our look at programming in Visual Basic for Applications in Microsoft Access (VBA, or Access VB). We will learn exactly what Visual Basic is, and what the different kinds of VB that are available do. You will learn about the benefits of VBA over macro programming. We assume you have no VBA programming experience, and will write our very first VBA code, making the computer say "Hello World!" which is a classic first program. You will learn the MsgBox command.

access vba hello world


You will learn about the DoCmd.OpenForm command which is used to open a form in Access. There are several options available and we'll cover some of those today. You will learn about the arguments list, where condition, how to open a specific record, and more.



We'll learn how to write subroutines that have multiple commands in them. You'll learn about the SetWarnings and OpenQuery commands.



Next we will recreate the "add product" button we designed with a macro back in the Expert series. We will learn about the If / Then / Else statement, GoToControl, and GoToRecord commands.

if then else access vba


Finally we're going to learn about the AfterUpdate event, and set up VBA code so that every time I update one of the customer's billing address fields, the corresponding shipping address field updates, if the box is checked.

This is the 1st class in the Access Developer series. If you're serious about building quality databases with Access, and you want to learn how to automate your database with VBA Programming then don't miss out on this course. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
