Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Exploring properties, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports in Depth.
- We've come to this course's first challenge.…Using what we've seen so far,…take a few minutes to create Product listing form…that better presents some of the information…contained in the Product's table.…You don't need to use every field in the Product's table,…find a few that make sense to present separately.…This is a creative challenge, so play with the tools…that we've explored and don't be afraid to…dig deeper into Property sheet…and experiment with some of the other options…that we might not have seen.…Give yourself at least 10 minutes to experiment,…but feel free to keep going if you're having fun.…
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.
