Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding buttons, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- Buttons are one of the key interactive…elements that you'll use on forms.…They instantly tell the end user…that something will happen when I click here.…Buttons will be linked to either macros…or Visual Basic code to control their behavior.…You can also add buttons for reports,…in order to increase their interactivity…and aid navigation or filtering.…The nice thing about that arrangement…is that buttons won't show when printed,…when placed onto a report.…Let's see how they work on a form.…I'm gonna go to our Controls form…and right-click on it, and say Design View.…In the Design tab on the ribbon,…in the Controls group, we'll find our Button object.…
It's this one here, with the rectangle and the four Xs.…I like to call it the Button button.…Let's go ahead and select it,…and we'll add one into our form by clicking.…That'll start up the Command Button Wizard.…Here we get to choose what we want…our button to do when we click on it.…We have a couple of categories here, and then…within each category we have several actions.…
Then the course dives into reports: creating efficient and readable layouts, grouping data into categories, tying reports to queries, and using conditional formatting rules to highlight key takeaways from the data. Finally, Adam demonstrates how to link forms and reports together and print your results, and introduces unique ways to save time filling out paperwork and generating form letters.
