Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching images, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- The selective use of images…throughout your database…ca accomplish several tasks.…They can help your documents conform…to company branding standards,…or reinforce organizational pride.…They can also make your database more attractive…and give it a bit of personality,…maybe even make it more fun…or inspirational for your end users.…Now there are four different ways…to add unbound images to your forms and reports.…And when I say unbound, I mean not connected…to a data source like our employee's photos were.…Let's go ahead and go back to that controls form…that we set up earlier.…I'll right click on it and say design view.…
Now over here in the controls group,…if I scroll to the end, we can find…this control here called the image control.…This is one way that we can add…an image into our form.…We can also use this button over here…that says insert image.…When I click on it, it will give me…a small gallery of any images…that I might have used already.…In this case, I haven't used any yet,…so this gallery is empty.…I can also insert an image…
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.
