Course Code: 01-04-D715

Expand your knowledge of Microsoft Access as you learn to get more from your data quickly and easily. In this class you will create interactive forms to find and summarize data and guide users to the report you want with only the entries you need. The class will use a combination of advanced parameter queries, Visual Basic for Applications, SQL, and ActiveX data objects (ADO) to quickly turn data into information presented on screen or print.

You will also learn to separate the data from the presentation, making upgrades easier and allowing different applications to easily use the same tables.

  • Understand the basics of Visual Basic for Applications, including writing reusable code, working with variables, and understanding Access objects.
  • Understand Linked Databases including the value in separating tables from the queries, forms and reports of the application.
  • Combine advanced parameter queries with controls and use domain functions to find related data and present results in forms and reports.
  • Understand how to use forms to get the right data for reports.
