Access Developer Level 5
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 4 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, 40 Minutes
Cost: $40.99

This class continues our look at programming in Visual Basic for Applications in Microsoft Access (VBA, or Access VB). We will begin by creating a commission check table to store employee commissions. A manager will select an employee from a combo box that shows only employees that have commissions outstanding that need to be paid.


Next a list of the orders that the employee still needs to receive commission for will show up in one list box. The manager can then click on them individually and move them over to a second list box (approved). This is as close as you can get to simulating "drag and drop" in Access without the need for third-party external libraries. We'll also calculate totals for each box.

drag and drop


We will next process the list of approved commissions by adding them to the Commission Check table, putting multiple items into a single check. We'll do this with a few SQL statements.


Now we'll begin working on our printable check report. We will first need a function to convert a currency value like $105.25 to "one hundred five dollars and twenty five cents." We'll use a function for that, which will be our first use of a Global Module. We'll see how to look up the largest check number in the table to add one to it for the next one.


Finally, we'll actually format and print the checks. I'll talk about easy ways you can go about doing this without wasting a ton of time (or blank checks).


This is the 5th 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.
