Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Creating navigation, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- So, were you able to create your navigation system?…Here's how I would approach the challenge.…First, I'm gonna open up the Main Menu,…and what we want to do…is add a button here…that'll link me to my Product Listing Form,…and then I want a button on the Project Listing…that'll return me to the Main Menu.…So let's go ahead and start…by switching our Main Menu into Design View,…and we'll grab a Button Control and drop it down.…So what I want to do is Form Operations,…Open a Form.…We're gonna open up the Product Listing Form…here on the bottom.…Show all the records and say Next,…and this is how I want my button styled,…so I can either type in the text that I want.…
I'm actually gonna leave the icon here…for just a moment so that way I don't forget…what icon I want,…this MS Access Form icon,…and I'll go ahead and add the label here…in just a moment.…So, we'll say Next.…And we'll leave the default name.…Okay, so there's my button.…Let's go ahead and style it.…Go to the Format,…Picture Caption.…I'm gonna change that over here…
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.
