Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the database, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- When starting any new database project,…it's really important to be familiar with the data tables…that we'll be working with.…Throughout this course,…we are going to be taking a look at data…from a company called KinetEco.…KinetEco is an alternative energy company…that manufactures solar panels and wind turbines.…When we first start up the database,…you might notice a security warning…across the top of the screen.…It says that "Some active content has been disabled."…We can click this button here to Enable the Content.…Now before we take a look at the tables…that make up this database,…let's make a quick change to our Access environment…so we're not bothered with these types of security warnings…as we move through the course.…
To do that, I'll go up here to the File tab,…and then go down to Options.…In the Options screen, I'm going to click on Trust Center,…and then over here on the right,…Trust Center Settings.…What I want to do is add a Trusted Location,…so I'll click here, and then choose Add New Location.…
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.
