Put Customers Into Groups and Search for Them

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In today's video, I'm going to show you how to put customers in your Microsoft Access database into groups (classifications, categories, tags, etc.) and then search for people by group. 

Erica from Bay City, Michigan (a Platinum Member) asks: I'd like the ability to group my customers according to interests. I sell collectibles and memorabilia. I know you're very fond of science fiction and fantasy, so to use your example, let's say I want to tag customers who are interested in Star Trek, those who like Star Wars, Firefly, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, and so on. Then I'd like to be able to pull up a list of just the people who are in a specific group so I can market to them. What's the best way to do this?


Members will learn how to actually make a Group Table with specific group names. This is better than using a single text field because you can have a specific list of group names, and you will minimize things like spelling errors. We will then filter our customer list by group by selecting from the list.

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.

Dear Richard

Loved the Groups Techhelp video! Group subforms, and the List form with combobox in footer will help refine my searches much better than using a multifield search function.

For my database, Im planning five of everything, Group tables, junction tables, subforms and list continuous forms. One set for company, director, shareholder etc. Read More...

No, you're linking CompanyID to GroupCompanyID there, and are free to make specific notes in there in a short text field for that specific transation, sometimes I even add more fields or dates or other things. Long as the relationship is only setup once (ID 1 to ID 1) you can do whatever you need to
