Continuous Forms

Continuous Forms. Click to Open Specific Product.

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

Learn how to create continuous forms in Microsoft Access. Otherwise known as List Forms, these allow you to scroll up and down and view all of the products in a table or query. We will create a continuous form to display a list of our products. I'll also show you how to click on one of the products, and then click on a command button to open up the single form for that specific product.

Wyatt from Anchorage, Alaska (a Gold Member) asks: How can I display all of my products in a list so that that I can scroll up and down through them. I'd also like to be able to click on one to open up that product's form. A total count of products and my total inventory value would also be nice to see, too. Thanks!


I'll show you how to calculate a line total (qty on hand * unit price) in addition to form footer totals for the total value of your inventory and the total number of products on hand.

Sum Totals incorrect Upload Images   Link

Richard, recently I emailed you about a problem getting the wrong totals in my reports are queries. I have a payroll database with dates, names, total check and a breakdown of the Federal and State taxes. I want to calculate the separate taxes either in a footer or in a query. I think I figured out my issue. Some of the tax fields are calculated and I've been trying to get the sum of the calculated fields. The totals are off by a few cents in every calculated total. I'm trying to group the totals by month to add the total taxes paid that month. Read More...

I would guess your problem is your calculated field isnt rounded to 2 decimals. So calculated numbers with the extra decimals are adding up over a penny along the way.
