Access Developer Level 2
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 Developer Level 1 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, 22 Minutes
Cost: $39.99

This class continues our look at programming in Visual Basic for Applications in Microsoft Access (VBA, or Access VB). We will begin by building a calendar form to perform basic arithmetic. We will learn about the VAL function, create buttons for the basic math operations, learn how the debugger works, avoid errors with the On Error Resume Next statement, talk more about If Then Else blocks, and Exit Sub.

Next we will learn how to create our own Private Subroutines, learn how parameters to those subs work, learn about the Select Case statement as an alternative to If Then blocks, talk about proper code indentation, and more.

Next we will build a form to track commissions for our sales reps. You will select an employee from a combo box, his commission rate will be filled in automatically, as will the sale date, you enter the sale amount, click calculate commission, and the exact amount will be calculated. Add optional notes. You will learn how to use the DropDown method to automatically open a combo box. We will learn how to create our own functions, return a value from those functions, and more.



Finally, we will add a button to automatically add the calculated commissions from the previous lesson into a commission table. We will construct an SQL statement and use the RunSQL command and INSERT INTO to add that data to our table. We'll learn about comments, the line continuation character, more about MsgBox, vbInformation, and lots more.
