Access Developer Level 7
Versions: This class was recorded with Microsoft Access 2016. The material is valid for Access 2007 up to 2021. Access has not changed that much over the years.
Pre-Requisites: Access Developer Level 6 strongly recommended, as you should watch all of my classes in order. However, if you're skipping around, you should have at least completed the Beginner series and the first 3 or 4 levels of the Expert series where I start to cover functions.
Running Time: 1 Hour, 12 Minutes
Cost: $41.99


This class continues our look at programming in Visual Basic for Applications in Microsoft Access (VBA, or Access VB). We will focus primarily on adding partial payments to invoices. If you have a situation where invoices are not paid all at once, this will be of particular interest to you. However, even if this is not the way your business operates, you will still find the techniques taught in today's class to be valuable. We will start by creating tables for our data: PaymentT, PaymentMethodT, and a form to view payments, PaymentF. We'll review form footer totals and the SUM function, the DSUM function, popup and modal forms. We'll learn how to refresh a subform in VBA, and how to refer to a field on a subform with Forms!FName!Subform.Form!Field notation.

 

Next we'll learn about different MsgBox options, including vbExclamation, vbCritical, and vbInformation. We'll make it so that a user can't add a payment if the invoice is already PAID, or if it's only a Quotation. We'll add the payment information to the printable invoice, so the user can see the total amount paid and the amount due. We'll use the NZ function to handle a situation where there are no payments (zero, instead of a Null value).

 

We'll add a horizontal line to our totals area, and we'll see how we can hide that line in addition to the Payments Made field and label if there are no payments. We'll learn how to work with the Build Event of the Report Footer Section. We'll see that there is a problem with the Can Shrink property when it comes to invisible fields and labels, and we'll see how to work around it. We'll learn how to deal with duplicate field names in queries, and what to do when a reference in a formula could refer to more than one field.

 

This is the 7th class in the Access Developer series. If you're serious about building quality databases with Access, and you want to learn how to automate your database with VBA Programming then don't miss out on this course. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
