Snippets of Microsoft Access Tutorials

Whilst training, I may show and walkthrough a feature that is relevant to my class but don’t have the resources or time to produce a documented tutorial. Microsoft is doing it’s part in providing activity specific tutorials.

Using queries as a datasource for Forms – In introductory classes we tell people that a Form can display records from a table and a query (and optionally an SQL string). You can create a Form by walking through a wizard. If you want to set up a form manually, well, this is the tutorial.

There are two ways to create an Access Switchboard – i.e. a Form festooned with buttons that acts as the main “menu” to your system. One is to create a blank form and put buttons on yourself. The other is to use the famous Switchboard Manager.
