In this movie, Adam begins writing custom conditional statements using the Expression Builder in Access. The Expression Builder will help ensure that proper syntax is used and provides easy access to help documentation if needed. At the end of the movie, a query is created that determines employee bonus amounts that are awarded to top performers.
- In this video we'll begin writing our own…conditional statement using the query designer at Access.…We'll be using the expression builder to help…us generate proper syntax and we'll be…using some mathematical expressions to evaluate our data.…First, we need to define the question we want answered.…I wanna clearly identify which employees met the sales goal…of $10,000 in the first three months of 2016.…If they met the goal then they earned a performance bonus.…I also want to see which employees did not earn the bonus.…Now I've already got a query…started gathering some information.…Let's go ahead and take a look…at the sales quarter one 2016 query.…
I'll double click on it to run it…and here we can see we have the employee ID,…the first name and last name of the employee,…as well as a column called Quarter 1 2016 Sales.…If we switch our view into design view…we'll notice we've got two tables here.…We've got the employees table and the second…one is actually a query that we made earlier.…It's the order details query and you might remember…
