For the second challenge in the course, Adam would like you to build a query that obtains a parameter from a combo box on a form. The end-user should be able to select which department they want to view from a list of valid choices, and then retrieve the email directory for the H+ Sport employees in the chosen department.
- [Voiceover] Obtaining query parameters…from other objects within the database…is an incredibly powerful technique,…which is why I've made it the focus…for our second challenge.…I'd like you to build a query…that outputs an email list for our employees.…The user should be able to select…which department they want from a list of valid choices,…and then retrieve the email directory…from the employees in the chosen department.…This challenge requires you to build a query…hooked to a combo box on a form,…and you'll find a blank form…in the H+ Sport Challenge 2 Start database.…And that'll help get you going.…Because there a couple of components needed,…it'll probably take a little longer than the last challenge.…
Say, about 10 minutes.…Good luck.…
