Microsoft Access 2010 Chapter 9 Lab 1 Creating Macros a Navigation Form and a PivotTable for the ECO Clothesline Database
Lab 1: Creating Macros, a Navigation Form, and a PivotTable for the ECO Clothesline Database
Problem: ECO Clothesline would like an easy way to access the various tables, forms, and reports included in the database. This would make the database much easier to maintain and update.
Instructions: If you are using Microsoft Access 2010 Comprehensive text, open the ECO Clothesline database that you used in Chapter 8. Otherwise, contact your instructor for more information about accessing the required files.
Perform the following tasks:
1. Create a macro named Forms and Reports that will include submacros to perform the following tasks:
a. Open the Sales Rep Order Data form in read-only mode.
b. Open the Sales Rep Master Form.
c. Open Customer Master Form.
d. Preview the Sales Rep Master List.
e. Preview the Customer Balance Report.
f. Preview the Customer Discount Report.
g. Export the Sales Rep Master List in the PDF format.
h. Export the Customer Balance Report in the PDF format.
i. Export the Customer Discount Report in the PDF format.
2. Create the menu form shown in Figure 9-80. The command buttons should use the macros you created in Step 1 to open the Customer Master Form, the Sales Rep Master Form, and the Sales Rep Order Data form.
3. Create the menu form shown in Figure 9-81. The option group should use the macros you created in Step 1 to preview and export the three reports.
4. Create a datasheet form for the Customer table and name the form Customer. Create a UI macro for the Customer form. When a user clicks a customer number on a row in the datasheet, the Customer Master Form should appear in a pop-up form.
5. Create a datasheet form for the Sales Rep table and name the form Sales Rep. Create a UI macro for the Sales Rep form. When a user clicks a sales rep number on a row in the datasheet, the Sales Rep Master Form should appear in a pop-up form.
6. Create the navigation form shown in Figure 9-82 for the ECO Clothesline database. Use the same design for your navigation form as the one illustrated in this chapter. For example, the Customer tab should display the Customer form you created in Step 4, and the Sales Rep tab should display the Sales Rep form you create in Step 5. The Forms tab should display the Form List form you created in Step 3, and the Reports tab should display the Reports List form you created in Step 3.
7. Submit the revised database in the format specified by your instructor.
