Make the data in your Access database more transparent with forms and reports. Learn how to use forms and reports to control the display of data and gather parameters for queries.
- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Adam Wilbert and I'd like to welcome you to Access 2013: Forms and Reports in Depth. In this course, we're going to explore the inner workings of two highly configurable objects inside of an Access database. With Forms, I'll show you how to create easy to use data entry points that interface with your data tables or work with controls and layout and design views as well as explore Access's extensive property sheets where we can fine tune their behavior, appearance and interactivity. Reports use many of the same tools and techniques as Forms and are great for preparing data for the printed page.
With Reports, we'll look at grouping data into categories while leveraging header and footer sections to organize your reports' structure and make them easy to read. We'll build reports from scratch that are tied to query record sources for increased flexibility and we'll hook them all back into a Form-based navigation system to help end users move around your database and accomplish tasks without having to know anything about its inner structure. So thank you for joining me. Now let's dig into Access 2013: Forms and Reports in Depth.
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.
