Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Entering and selecting data, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- When it comes to displaying data in your forms,…there are three objects that you'll use most often.…They're the text box, the combo box,…and the list box.…Because these three controls work with data,…we'll have to connect our blank form to a data source…so that they'll work properly.…I want to build a form…based off of this Feedback table here.…Let's go ahead and double click on it…to see what's in there.…The Feedback table collects product feedback…from our customers.…It has a Feedback ID number,…which is the primary key for the table,…a Product ID, or the ID for the product…that's being reviewed,…a numerical rating, a yes or no field…here called Public that defines whether or not…we can use this field on our website or not,…and then we have the text of the feedback over here.…
So let's go ahead and create a form…that allows us to enter in new feedback records.…We'll go ahead and close out this table…and go to the CREATE tab, and I'll create a new form…in Design View here.…Now the first thing we need to do…is connect this form to a data source.…
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.
