Learn how to create checklists in Microsoft Access. You will see how to set up a checklist table, create an event to set the date and time the checklist item was completed, and then when you're done with the list, archive the data and store it in a history table.

Ezra from Seattle WA (a Gold Member) asks: I have a checklist of safety issues that needs to be done every day. I need to store the date and time that each issue was performed. I would like the user to be able to check a box, have the date and time automatically fill in, and then when the entire checklist is done be able to save all of that information for reporting later. How can I do this?


I'll show you how to convert your queries over to SQL to avoid cluttering your database. You will also learn how to create a custom sort order in case your checklist needs to be followed in a specific series of steps. We will use conditional formatting to color each line green when an item is finished. Finally, we will set up multiple lists, so you can have several checklists in your database.
