Why Build a Search Form?
I didn’t think a LISTBOX was the right solution, so I demonstrated this “Nifty Search Form” by adapting it to the OP’s Database. All done in a Few minutes! You can download your own copy of the search form here:- https://gum.co/NiftySearchForm — alternatively, follow the video instructions and you can build your own!
My Reply:- (The Key take away from my Reply — I found it an exceptionally rewarding way of learning Microsoft Access VBA)
I did it as a project to help me learn how to program Microsoft Access VBA… My first attempts at a Search Form were very basic, but they pointed the way to making improvements. As I made each improvement, there were 3 levels in all, my skill and understanding of programming in Microsoft Access VBA improved immensely. The result was this Search Form, which I am very proud of!
If you’re interested in learning Microsoft Access VBA then I can think of no better way than to adopt a project. Indeed, I realised the value of what I had learnt and I have tried to to explain it and to convey what I learnt in three collections of YouTube videos demonstrating how to build your own Search Form.
There are three sets of YouTube videos because they cater for people with different levels of expertise in MS Access VBA. Some might start at the first set of videos and some may start at the last set of videos.
The “Nifty Search Form” evolved out of many months of experimentation and learning.
I’ve condensed my experience down into these 3 sets of YouTube videos:-
If you are interested in learning VBA then I can’t think of a better way than following the sets of YouTube videos.
Following them will give you a good “leg up” in this learning process. You’ve also got the back up that you can contact me if there’s anything you need help with.
