Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Exploring properties, part of Access 2013: Forms and Reports.
- So how did you do?…Were you able to discover new and useful…options in the property sheet?…Since this was a creative challenge,…there's obviously no right or wrong answers.…The important lesson is just to dive in and experiment.…So let's first start by taking a look…at our Products table here.…I can see all of the different products that we offer.…We have lots of details about each product,…including its power output and its footprint or its size.…So my idea is to create a form that simplifies…the information down to just the basic specifications…that our customers might inquire about,…something like a quick product reference guide.…
So let's go ahead and start building.…Let's go ahead and close this down,…and I'm gonna go to the Create tab,…and we'll start in Form Design view.…I'm gonna switch over to Add Existing Fields,…and in the Show tables, we'll open up our Products table,…and also are adding in a few things.…We'll take the product Category,…the Name, its Power output,…it's Footprint,…and maybe the SuggestedRetail price.…
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.
