Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting a record from the database, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- Before we can design our report…for printing on the I-9 employment eligibility document,…we need to gather the data that we want to print.…In this case, we're gonna make a simple form…that will allow our users to select the employee…that they are interested in, and we'll hook it into…a query that will populate the report.…We'll start by creating a new blank form in Design View…by going to the Create tab, and choosing Form Design.…I'm gonna use a Combo Box that the user can interact with,…so I'll grab one from the controls group,…and I'll click down here to add one.…I'm gonna cancel out of the Combo Box Wizard,…and build the query manually.…
We'll go into the Data tab.…In the Row Source, I'll click on the Build button.…From this query, we're gonna pull information…from our Employees Table. I'll double-click on it,…and then close the Show Table window.…Now I want to add in the employee ID,…so that I make sure that I select a specific employee.…Then, I want this list to appear alphabetically,…based off of their last name. So add the Last Name…
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.
