Access 2003: Create a Macro

Access 2003: Create a Macro

Macros are terrific for automating repetitive tasks but they also work really well when adding automation to your Access forms. For instance, with a macro, you can create a button on a form that opens another form or closes the open form which allows you to add a little bit of interactivity, or automation, for your users.

All macros are designed from the Macro window.
