Switchboards, Navigation Forms, Menu Forms

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to create a Switchboard, a Navigation Form, and my personal favorite method of navigating around a database which is to create custom Menu Forms. Plus, I'll show you a cool special trick for your Menu Form navigation.

Charlotte from Auckland, New Zealand (a Platinum Member) asks: What is the best way to create an interface for my users to navigate the different forms and reports in my database? Switchboard? Navigation Forms? Something else?


Members will learn how to open forms directly to the right, or underneath the parent form. This is handy for creating menus where the forms may move around the screen. You can control the form's exact positioning from the calling form.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

You mentioned a form positioning template in you navigation video. However, I have search all over the website and can not find it. It is also not listed in the description of the video. Could you please point me in the right direction.

It's right up on this page under the "Members" section where it says "Gold Member Template Download."

Being a "new" member, I had some difficulty in locating the download links.  I'll blame it on my old eyes.  I was able to download both the navigation template and the TH-Member database.  I typed the words "code vault" into the search box, since I'm still learning navigation of this website.  I clicked on the result and navigated to the Access VBA directory.  I located the Form Positioning link, then cut and pasted the code into notepad.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to locate the Form Positioning database.

However, I was unable to locate the Form position database
