Microsoft Access 2003 Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am tasked by boss to create a Tool Sign in / Sign out log and the best tool that I have is Microsoft Access 2003. I have created a form that is linked to a table, and the form has the following entries: Date (auto date), Employee number, Department number, and Tool number.  My question is, I want to have a screen that is displayed before the form with two buttons: "Tool Sign In" and "Tool Sign Out", or should the "buttons" be on the form? How do I do this, or can someone recommend a book that I can buy that will teach me how to do this?

    Thank you,

    Savmitch1

    Hi,

    You're welcome. I just realized those demos might require Access 2010, so let us know if you can't open them.

    Good luck!

  • The firewall at my work is preventing me from opening up the demos.  Will these still work from my home computer, which I believe has Access 2013?

    Thanks,

    Oh, yes, definitely. Give it a shot at home and let us know how it goes. You should be fine though.

    Cheers!
