Discover how to manage data entry and reporting tasks more efficiently using Access 2010. Author Adam Wilbert presents lessons on designing forms, organizing and displaying data with form controls, creating flexible queries, and building a form-based navigation system. The course also shows how to build reports from wizards and queries, highlight important data with conditional formatting, and automate reporting processes with macros.
I want to thank you for joining me here in Access, and I would like to leave you with these parting thoughts. Form and Report design in Access is one of those areas that really is interdisciplinary, and you can pick up a helpful idea on how to structure your content in the most unexpected of places. Start paying close attention to the experience you have completing forms on the Internet or interacting with the screen on an ATM machine. If you find an unusually well laid out financial report, take a few minutes to pick it apart and figure out what really works about it. Inspiration on how to create a better interactive experience for end users, literally is all around you. I would like to recommend a couple of additional lynda.com courses that can help you build on the core concepts of user interface and would apply to what we've seen here in Access.
The first is Web Form Design Best Practices. That course covers the importance of understanding user behavior and form organization. The second course is Typography for Web Designers, which explores the fundamentals of organizing text for increased clarity in organization. Until next time, thanks again and have a fantastic day!
