In this movie, Adam demonstrates his solution to the second challenge. After creating a combo box and the query to populate the dropdown list, the end-user can select which department they want to view from a list of valid choices, and then retrieve the email directory for the H+ Sport employees in the chosen department.
- [Voiceover] For challenge two, I asked to obtain…an email list from the database that would…dynamically filter by a department chosen by the end user.…Here's how I go about solving this problem.…First, I'd start with the form.…So let's find that blank form here that was already created.…I'll right-click on it and say copy,…and then right-click on the navigation pane and say paste.…I'm going to call this form "DepartmentEmailList."…Going ahead and say okay and that'll create…that new form right here.…Just right-click on it and jump straight in to design view.…Then we'll come up to the design tab…and we'll add in our combo box.…Go ahead and click over here and cancel out of the wizard.…
It's not going to be useful in this case.…Let's go ahead and move this label into position…and let's style it a little bit.…Go ahead and make it a little bit bigger.…Go ahead and highlight it.…I'm going to call this "Select a Department."…And once again, I'll select it all.…And we'll format it so that we can read it,…make it bold, make it white, make it bigger.…
