Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Embedding macros into buttons, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- Macros can activate all kinds of abilities in your database,…and the most common way to trigger them…is by pressing a button.…Earlier we saw how we can use…a button wizard in the Form Controls…to choose from a list of pre-defined actions.…Using a full macro designer, we can get…much more control over the functions…that our buttons perform.…Let's add some buttons to enhance…the functionality of the CheckInAnalysis report.…I'm going to find it here in the Navigation pane,…and just double click on it to open it.…Now this report looks a lot different…than the last time you've seen it.…I spent some time cleaning up the header rows,…and organizing the data a little more.…
Now let's continue to refine it by adding in some buttons.…I'm going to switch my view here into the Layout mode.…I'll use the bottom portion of this button here,…and choose to Layout View.…Then I'm going to click on this cell right here,…which is in the page header section.…And I'm going to go to the Arrange tab here,…and we're going to choose to insert a new row above.…
