Access 2007: Forms and Reports in Depth

Access 2007: Forms and Reports in Depth

with Adam Wilbert

Video: Welcome

Hello! I am Adam Wilbert, and I'd like to welcome you to Access 2007: Forms And Reports In Depth. In this course, we are going to explore the inner workings of two highly configurable objects inside of an Access database. With Forms, I will show you how to create easy-to-use data entry points that interface with your data tables. We will work with controls and layout and design views, as well as explore Access's extensive Property Sheets, where we can fine-tune their behavior, appearance and interactivity. Reports use many of the same tools and techniques as Forms and are great for preparing data for the printed page.

Welcome

Hello! I am Adam Wilbert, and I'd like to welcome you to Access 2007: Forms And Reports In Depth. In this course, we are going to explore the inner workings of two highly configurable objects inside of an Access database. With Forms, I will show you how to create easy-to-use data entry points that interface with your data tables. We will work with controls and layout and design views, as well as explore Access's extensive Property Sheets, where we can fine-tune their behavior, appearance and interactivity. Reports use many of the same tools and techniques as Forms and are great for preparing data for the printed page.

With reports, we'll look at grouping data into categories, while leveraging header and footer sections to organize your report structure and make them easy to read. We will build reports from scratch that are tied to query record sources for increased flexibility, and we'll hook them all back into a form-based navigation system to help end users move around the database and accomplish tasks without having to know anything about its inner structure. Thank you for joining me. Now let's dig into Access 2007: Forms and Reports In Depth.
