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 Nashville TN 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.

Although you may not prefer to use macros to develop the routines that control your applications, macros in Access 2007 play a major role in the development process. Available in Microsoft Office Access 2007 are embedded macros. Rather than appearing in the Navigation Pane as a separate object, an embedded macro is part of the object to which it is associated. When you modify an embedded macro, it does not affect any other macros or objects in the database. Because you can prevent embedded macros from performing certain potentially unsafe operations, they are trusted. In addition to their other benefits, using Access 2007 macros can often help you get started with developing applications—because these macros can be converted to VBA code. This means you can develop part of your application using macros, convert the macros to VBA code, and then continue developing your application. Although I don’t recommend this approach for serious developers, it offers a great jump-start for those new to Access or Windows development in general.
Learning the Basics of Creating and Running a Macro
To create a macro, click to select the Create tab. Then select Macro from the Other group. The Macro Design window shown in Figure 7.1 appears. In this window, you can build a program by adding macro actions, arguments, names, and conditions to the macro.
Macro actions are like programming commands or functions. They instruct Access to take a specific action, for example, to open a form. Macro arguments are like parameters to a command or function; they give Access specifics on the selected action. For example, if the macro action instructs Access to open a form, the arguments for that action tell Access which form should be opened and how it should be opened (Form, Design, or Datasheet view or Print Preview). Macro names are like subroutines, and several subroutines can be included in one Access macro. Each of these routines is identified by its macro name. Macro conditions allow you to determine when a specific macro action will execute. For example, you might want one form to open in one situation and a second form to open in another situation.
As mentioned, macro actions instruct Access to perform a task. You can add a macro action to the Macro Design window in several ways. One method is to click in a cell in the Macro Action column and then click to open the drop-down list. A list of all the macro actions appears. Select the one you want from the list, and it’s instantly added to the macro. Use this method of selecting a macro action if you aren’t sure of the macro action’s name and want to browse the available actions.
After you have been working with macros for a while, you will know which actions you want to select. Rather than open the drop-down list and scroll through the entire list of actions, you can click a cell in the Action column and then start typing the name of the macro action you want to add. Access will find the first macro action beginning with the character(s) you type.
The OpenTable, OpenQuery, OpenForm, OpenReport, and OpenModule actions are used to open a table, query, form, report, or module, respectively. You can fill in all these actions and associated arguments quite easily with a drag-and-drop technique:
1. Scroll through the Navigation Pane until you see the object that you want to add to the macro.
2. Click and drag the object you want to open over to the Macro Design window. The appropriate action and arguments are automatically filled in.
Dragging and dropping a table, query, form, report, or module onto the Macro Design window saves you time because all the macro action arguments are automatically filled in for you. Notice in Figure 7.3 that six action arguments are associated with the OpenForm action: Form Name, View, Filter Name, Where Condition, Data Mode, and Window Mode.
Three of the arguments for the OpenForm action have been filled in: the name of the form (frmClients), the view (Form), and the window mode (Normal).
