Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- I want to thank you for joining me…here inside of Access.…And I'd like to leave you with these parting thoughts.…Form and report design in Access…is one of those areas that really is interdisciplinary…and you can pick up helpful ideas…of how to structure your content…in the most unexpected of places.…Start paying close attention to the experience that you have…completing forms on the internet.…Or interacting with the screen on your phone or tablet.…If you find an unusually well-laid out financial report,…take a few minutes to pick it apart…and figure out what really works about it.…Inspiration on how to create a better…interactive experience for your end users…literally is all around you.…
I'd like to recommend a couple of additional…Lynda.com courses that can help you build…on the core concepts of user interface…and would apply to what we've seen here inside of Access.…The first is Web Form Design Best Practices.…That course covers the importance of understanding…user behavior and form organization.…Also, be sure to check out Access 2013 Power Tips…
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.
