Lab 1: Applying Advanced Form Techniques to the ECO Clothesline Database
Problem: ECO Clothesline needs a form for the Customer table that will allow users to update data in the table ECO also needs a form to display open orders data for sales reps.
Instructions: If you are using Microsoft Access 2010 Comprehensive text, open the ECO Clothesline database that you used in Chapter 7. Otherwise, see your instructor for information on accessing the files required in this book.
Perform the following tasks:
1. Create a query that includes the Sale Rep Number field from the Sales Rep tan;e, the Customer Number field from the Customer table and the Order Number and Amount fields from the Open Orders table. Sort the query in ascending order by Sales Rep Number, Customer Number, and Order NUmber Save the query as Sales Rep and Orders.
2. Create the form shown in Figure 8-95. total Amount is a calculated control and is the sum of the Balance and Amount Paid amounts. Format the Total Amount control as Currency with two decimal places. (Hint: Use the property sheet for the control.) the form includes command buttons, a combo box for the Sales Rep Number field, and a combo box to search for customers by name. Be sure to sort the customer by names in ascending order, place a rectangle around the combo box, and update the combo box. The user should not be able to tab to the combo box. When the Add Record button is clicked, the insertion point should be in the customerNumber field. The form is similar in style to the form shown in Figure 8-1 on page AC 466.
3. Create the Sales Rep Order Data form shown in Figure 8-96. The subform that appears in the Datasheet tab uses the Sales Reps and Orders query (Figure 8-96a). The chart ghat appears in the Chart tab uses the same query (Figure 8-96b).
4. Submit the revised database in the format specified by your instructor.
