Access Inventory Courses
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   10/3/2008 4:18:36 AM

I just finished some new Advanced Microsoft Access courses dealing with Recordsets and Inventory Control.

Basically, a Recordset allows you to edit, add, or delete data from your tables using VBA code. In order to do anything advanced with your data, you have to know Recordsets.

One of the most requested topics is "how do I manage my inventory?" If a customer orders some products and you ship them out, you need to take those items out of your inventory, keep track of reorder levels, and of course order those items from a vendor. That's inventory control.

I've recorded TEN new courses (Access 320 thru 329) that have to deal primarily with Recordsets - although there's a lot of additional material in there too like programming multi-select listboxes, triple-state checkboxes, adding an option to a combo box on the fly (OnNotInList) and lots, LOTS more.

Are there additional courses outside of 320-329 that are needed in order to build an inventory management system?

I see returning items from the vendor but I do not see after the parts are received that they are automatically adjusted in the QtyOnHand in the inventory.  Also It would be awesome if this was added plus dealing with partical orders, returns, etc. Read More...

I've added "Using Access with a Barcode Scanner" to the WAITING LIST under the "Other New Seminars" section. If you're interested in seeing how to do this, VOTE for this seminar on the Waiting List. If I get 4 or 5 people who are interested, I'll record the seminar.
