Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the main menu, part of Access 2010: Forms and Reports.
The forms that we have looked at so far have all been linked to a data source…and pulled records from our databases tables.…But forms don't always have to interact with data;…they can be standalone elements that provide interactivity for your end users.…In other words, a form can simply be a blank area where you can group buttons…and capture user intent to help them navigate the database.…When used appropriately, these types of forms can completely remove any need for…your users to dig around in the navigation pane over here.…You can control exactly what your users have access to and often more…importantly what they don't have access to.…
In this movie we are going to create a main menu that will help our end users to…navigate the Two Trees database, we will start with a fresh, clean, blank form…in Design View and add some buttons that trigger macros.…Let's go ahead and go up to Create tab, and we will create a new Form in Design View.…In the Property Sheet, if it's not open, you can press this button here.…
