Take your basic knowledge of Access VBA to an entirely new level!

Once you have been exposed to Access VBA a logical next question is “What could I create with VBA?”. This course will give you an answer to that question by providing you with a finished system that you can start using right away. Rather than lead you through building parts of databases, this course examines the workings of this finished database that I have used in my consulting business for years.

Inside the course, I will show you a different approach to take with menu buttons and how you can setup the “Power Search” for any table in just a matter of minutes! You will also learn how to, with one click, create merge letters in Word with the search results or how to create and title a new Excel sheet.

Follow along as the instructor takes you step by step through the inner workings of this simple to understand, yet very powerful platform that is very understandable to any prospective client, whether they are computer savvy or not.
