Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time. This client/server system is used by employees in our El Paso TX and New York offices. MS Access Solutions and their staff worked with us to develop the necessary specifications and design documents, and then programmed, tested, and implemented the application throughout our organization.

Macro names are like subroutines; they allow you to place more than one routine in a macro. This means you can create many macro routines without having to create several separate macros. You should include macros that perform related functions within one particular macro. For example, you might build a macro that contains all the routines required for form handling and another that has all the routines needed for report handling.
Only two steps are needed to add macro names to a macro:
1. Click the Macro Names in the Show/Hide group on the Design tab. The Macro Name column appears.
2. Add macro names to each macro subroutine. Figure 7.9 shows a macro with three subroutines: OpenFrmClients, OpenFrmTimeCards, and CloseAnyForm. The OpenFrmClients subroutine opens the frmClients form, showing all the clients added in the past 30 days. The OpenFrmTimeCards subroutine opens the frmTimeCards form, and the CloseAnyForm subroutine displays a message to the user and then closes the active form.
At times, you want a macro action to execute only when a certain condition is true. Fortunately, Access allows you to specify the conditions under which a macro action executes:
1. Click the Conditions tool in the Show/Hide group of the Design tab. The Condition column appears.
2. Add the conditions you want to each macro action.
The macro pictured in Figure 7.11 evaluates information entered on a form. The CheckBirthDate subroutine evaluates the date entered in the txtBirthDate text box. Here’s the expression entered in the first condition:
DateDiff(“yyyy”,[Forms]![frmPersonalInfo]![txtBirthDate],Date()) Between 25 And 49
This expression uses the DateDiff function to determine the difference between the date entered in the txtBirthDate text box and the current date. If the difference between the two dates is between 25 and 49 years, a message box is displayed indicating that the person is over a quarter century old.
The ellipsis on the second line of the CheckBirthDate subroutine indicates to Access that the macro action should be executed only if the condition entered on the previous line is true. In this case, if the condition is true, the macro is terminated.
If the first condition isn’t satisfied, the macro continues evaluating each condition in the subroutine. The CheckBirthDate subroutine displays an age-specific message for each person 25 years of age and older. If the person is younger than 25, none of the conditions is met, and no message is displayed.
The CheckGender subroutine works a little bit differently. It evaluates the value of the optGender option group. One of the first two lines of the subroutine execute, depending on whether the first or second option button is selected. The third line of the subroutine executes regardless of the Option Group value because no ellipsis is entered in the macro action’s Condition column. If no ellipsis is found on any line of the subroutine, the macro action executes unconditionally. If an ellipsis were placed before the line, the macro action would execute only if the value of OptGender was 2.
