Course description

When used to their full potential, the forms and reports functions within Access can provide a powerful, professional-looking interface that can be used to perform multiple tasks, and make it easier for others to use your database application.

We cover a variety of different form types – including search forms, forms with interactive controls, and forms within forms – and show you how to create and manage an effective navigation switchboard.

Is it right for me?

If you’re already competent in designing and using Access databases, and able to build queries, this advanced Access training course will enhance your current skill level.

What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Create forms for interactive searching and display of search results
  • Build simplified forms and use forms within forms
  • Create interactive combo and list controls on forms
  • Use macros and simple Visual Basic to make forms interactive
  • Build a navigation system including custom menus and toolbars

I found everything on the course to be helpful so don't think it could be improved further
