Access Expert Level 13
Description: Access Expert Level 13
Versions: This class was recorded with Microsoft Access 2013. The material is valid for Access 2007 up to 2021. Access has not changed that much over the years.
Pre-Requisites: Access Expert Level 12 strongly recommended
Running Time: 1 Hour, 22 Minutes
Cost: $24.99

This class picks up where Expert Level 12 left off. We will focus primarily on Update Queries. We will begin by learning how to edit the code in an embedded button macro to control what records are printed when we open a report. We will show a single invoice, all invoices for a specific customer, or all invoices between two dates.


Next we will learn about Action Queries: what they are, what they do, and why you want to use them. We'll discuss update, append, delete, and make-table queries. We'll talk about properly backing up your database BEFORE running any action queries.


Next we'll begin learning about Update Queries. We'll see how to change the name of all companies in a particular state. We'll use a nested IIF function to assign sales reps to customers based on what state the customer is in.


A lot of using Update Queries has to do with fixing data that your users enter poorly. We will learn how to capitalize all of the states in our table, assuming some are entered like "ny" and other "NY" and others yet "Ny" (hey, it happens). We'll learn about the UCase, LCase, and StrConv functions to set the names of our customers in Proper Case.


Finally we will learn how to use Update Queries to add 5% to all of our product prices, and how to mark all of the PAID orders in our system as SHIPPED, and give them a ship date.


This is the 13th class in the Access Expert series. There's a lot of great material in this class. Learning Update Queries will add tremendous power to your databases. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
