Access Expert Level 4
Description: Access Expert Level 4
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 3
Running Time: 1 Hour, 48 Minutes
Cost: $21.99

This class picks up where Expert Level 3 left off. We will begin by setting up a table to track additional customer information that we don't want to keep in our primary customer table. You'll learn why in class. You will learn how to force a one-to-one relationship so that each customer can have one and only one related record in the extended customer table. We'll also set up some additional tables to track multiple family members per customer.


In Lesson 2 we will build the extended customer form and learn a bunch of new form controls. We'll build an option group, a list box, and some toggle buttons. We'll learn some advanced formatting techniques and how to make the toggle buttons change color when they're pressed or you hover the mouse over them.


In Lesson 3 we will continue work on our extended customer form. You will learn about the tab controls, and you will learn how to display images in your forms and reports without actually saving that image in your database. You'll learn why this is important to keep your database running efficiently.


Next we will build a form to track the additional family members per customer. We will embed that as a subform inside of the extended customer form. We'll also create a combo box to pick the relationship to the customer, and a helper form so we can edit/add those on the fly.


Finally, we'll take a walk through all of the tools in the form design toolbox. I'll go over the ones we've covered so far, explain which ones you'll probably never use, and give you a brief overview of the controls we're going to cover in future upcoming lessons.


This is the fourth 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 how to use a variety of different form controls and relationships is important 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.
