Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching data macros to tables, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- Data macros are macro-events that are triggered…when something changes in a data table.…They're most commonly used…to essentially watch what gets entered into a table…and then respond to the entry event by creating a log,…noting the change that happened…and recording the time and date when the change was made.…Let's create a simple logging system…to keep track of changes that are made…to the Landon Hotel's room assignments.…First, we need to create a table in order to store the log,…so I'll go up to the Create tab…and we'll start a new table in Design view.…The first field is going to be LogId.…
And it's going to be a AutoNumber field,…so I'll just type in "A" to get to AutoNumber.…And then we'll come down here to the next one.…And actually we'll change this to a capital D there…and make it the Primary Key.…Okay, we'll come down to the second one…and it's going to be CheckInDate.…This is going to be a Date/Time data type.…Come down to the third field.…We're going to say OldRoomID.…This will be a Short Text data type.…
