Using the MS Access Macro to Automate Your Database

The MS Access macro has divided developers ever since their introduction. They’ve not changed a great deal in each release, although Office 2010 will see the most significant changes yet. Cryptic error messages, hard to debug and low on error checking are just some of the complaints from seasoned developers. ดูหนังออนไลน์ฟรี

The MS Access macro is easy to set up and use if you begin with a small database. The macro will help you to move data around and perform a variety of other tasks. Although a small database may not be able to automate as much as a larger one, it may still be able to get you 90% or more of the work done if you know how.

Here are some essential tips for macro automation and how to set one up.

  1. Pick your objectData source: Decide what data you want to automate. Can you automate data that sits in a flat file on your desk, or can you automate data that is networked to several databases, servers, or even other computers?

Make sure you understand exactly what your objectData source is before you begin. You need to make sure that the data you select can be sent to other objects. หนังยอดฮิต

  1. Open an Access 2007 table or query. Sreetwin helps you identify objects in your database as well as allows you to find objects based on criteria you specify.
  2. Save your object in the macro recorder. You now use the objectData source to save your object. The objectData source is accessible from theRecordMacrodialog-box.
  3. Name your objectIE. Select the object and make sure the objectData source is pointing to an object.
  4. Give a proper name to the object:You do not need to use an object name you will eventually replace with an Access 2007 macro.
  5. Location boon! Now the object is saved in the macro recorder where it can be assigned a macro.
  6. Close your macro and you are ready to repeat.

The second way of setting up a macro to automate your object is by attaching the object to a toolbar. No programming skills are really required as this is a good way to save effort as well as avoiding extra programming actions. หลุดนายแบบ

To do this, you need to add a macro button to your Toolbar. You can do this by clicking on the tool bar buttons and then selecting the macro button from the popup menu.

Tools > Macro Pros & Cons >Macro button

You can now see an arrow buttons which will let you step through a macro example. When you step through your example, you can click on the “Next” button to proceed or “Back” button to go back.

This way you can easily follow along with your macro example as you go through the steps. You can also record the steps in the macro recording screen, which will also save you time when you use your macro.

This sounds like a pros, but I find it a pain in the neck.

Here’s why I don’t find it a pain in the neck. Think about how many times you have to manually step through your macro example. How many times have you clicked on an object and then you have to click on another button to open the object?

And if you have ever tried to replace an object in a macro, you know how frustrating that can be. It’s like you are reinventing the wheel. เย็ดท่ายาก

You can make your life easier and make your macros more robust and powerful by adding keyboard shortcuts. When you create a macro, you will be far more likely to use it than if you had to manually write each step.

As you build your macro, you will find you can do things with it that you never thought possible. You can save time by writing macros that do the same steps over and over. You can achieve the same outcome with a variable or global variable. You can ensure the results are the same every time you run a macro by making a macro assign a certain outcome to a variable.

The secret is to write your macro so that it does as many things as it can with the least number of steps.

Here are 5 more things to think about to make your smart and powerful macro productive.

  • Make your macro -written piece- constant. You must show that the content of the cell immediately next to it, and all cells immediately below it, are active when the macro runs. This ensures the results are the same every time the macro runs.
  • Maximise the use of your macro – reduce the number of steps to achieve a powerful result. Use your macro to find the maximum number of items that can be displayed in a cell, then minimise the number of steps involved.
  • Allow your macro to perform “what if” analysis. Such as what if you had a customer enter a large amount of data into a single field. คลิปทางบ้าน
