About This Courseadvanced

Take what you learned in the Intermediate Access VBA Course to a level that is probably far beyond what you thought was possible. This course takes the Prototype System introduced in the Intermediate VBA course to a much higher level by adding the ability to incorporate unlimited subforms!

I spent a solid month of programming greatly expanding this system while, at the same time, making it simpler to work with! I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and I think you will be too!

Restrictions like having your form have the same name as the recordsource table are GONE, and you can name the List form anything you want. You can add unlimited subforms to your main form and use any or all of them in search! Best of all, now you can save your searches!

To help make saved searches more valuable, two new Date Criterias have been added: MTD and YTD. Put one of these into your criteria and the search will automatically calculate the date from the beginning of the month or year through today, every time you run the search!

Searches can be setup with criteria on just one of your subforms, or all of them or any combination of the main form and subforms. Save the search with a descriptive name and then retrieve it at any time. You can also have an unlimited number of main forms and have searches running in ALL of THEM AT THE SAME TIME! If you close the database without ending the searches, they will all be there when you open the database again!

Follow along as I take you step by step through the inner workings of this radically improved database. We will cover VBA syntax that is far beyond what you thought possible with subforms.

This system contains all the code and capabilities from the Intermediate system, but also shows you how to :

  • Make the menu buttons change color when you move the mouse over them.
  • Create “Quick Search” pulldowns that integrate with the regular search.
  • Use the prototype form to quickly setup an existing form to have all the functionality of the Customer form in the course.
  • Easily add unlimited subforms to your main form and have them work in search also.
  • Use all the search criteria methods from the Intermediate course within your subforms.
  • Save an unlimited number of searches on each of your main forms.
  • Remove or modify saved searches easily.
  • Use the new MTD and YTD criteria in any main form or subform date field.
  • Understand the tables that search automatically creates for you.

If you take the time to master doing a demo with this database, you will instantly impress potential clients with your capabilities.
