Ideas for Next Access Seminar
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   13 years ago

OK, so far, the most popular new topic that most people are really itching to see in the next new Access Seminar is how to make a multi-field search form.

For example, if you want to search for a customer, you could type in part of a name, address, phone number, etc. and have Access find that record (or records). This is a great idea. I have these all over my databases, but never thought to put them in a class.

I teach how to search on ONE field in my regular Access classes, but not on multiple fields at once. HINT: It will involve some SQL and some VBA, but it's not super hard.

OK, what are some other ideas you guys have for the next seminar? Post them here or email me.

Personally, I prefer to whiteboard everything, but you're right... this would make an excellent seminar. I have a lot of books on DESIGNING and PLANNING a database before you even start using the computer. Would anyone else be interested in this?

Dear Richard - Can you please record a class describing the thought process that you go through in planning a database. Before you even build the first table - Do you write down details in a note pad for example. Can you please do that. Read More...

Kevin, the splash screen isn't that hard. You just create another form that displays what you want, and either a timer event to turn it off (after 10 seconds, say) or a button to close it and proceed to your main form. The checkbox to determine whether or not to display it just needs to save a value (text file, database, registry, etc.) to determine whether or not to show it. Now, you want to do this in ACCESS or VB6?
