About This Course

Take your basic knowledge of Access VBA to an entirely new level! This is your opportunity to work with a FULLY FUNCTIONING SYSTEM that is ready to install RIGHT NOW!

Once you have been exposed to Access VBA a logical next question is “What could I create with VBA?”. This course will give you an answer to that question by providing you with a finished system that you can start using right away. Rather than lead you through building parts of databases, this course examines the workings of this finished database that I have used in my consulting business for years.

Most of the employees in my client businesses know nothing about Access and the ribbon and navigator are always hidden, yet these people usually get more work done faster than experienced Access users!

Inside the course, I will show you a different approach to take with menu buttons and how you can set up the “Power Search” for any table in just a matter of minutes! You will also learn how to, with one click, create merge letters in Word with the search results or how to create and title a new Excel sheet.

Follow along as I take you step by step through the inner workings of this simple to understand, yet a very powerful platform that is very understandable to any prospective client, whether they are computer savvy or not.

This system contains all the code to:

  • Provide a simple to understand and use menu system that can be used with the mouse or keyboard.
  • Control the proper addition, editing, and deletion of records.
  • Quickly sort and locate records based on any item of data.
  • Instantly create letters and/or envelopes for the displayed record using Microsoft Word with two keystrokes.
  • Allow the user to do highly complex searches without knowing anything about Access.
  • Instantly Create reports based on those searches with complete descriptions in the title.
  • Export search results to a new Excel spreadsheet, then format and title it, with just a two keystrokes.
  • Create a merge document in Word with the search results for bulk mailing.
  • Allow you to add all these functions to an existing form in less than one minute.

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