Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding buttons, part of Access 2010: 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 there.…Buttons will be linked to either Macros or Visual Basic code to control their behavior.…Like the other controls, you add them to reports as well for navigation…within your database.…But the nice thing about buttons is that they don't print when you print your report.…Let's take a look at adding some buttons to my Controls form.…I'll right-click on that form in the Navigation pane and choose Design View.…The Button control is this one right here, the rectangle at the Xs inside of it.…I'll go ahead and click that once and click to add a button to my form.…
When I do that the Command Button Wizard starts, and it asks what do I want my button to do?…This first section has Categories;…the second section has Actions within each category.…So for instance, I've got Record Navigation, and I can do Find Next or Find…Record or Go To Next Record or Last Record.…
