In the course Access Programming with VBA you will learn to provide the Microsoft Access Database with extra functionality with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Access is a relational database application that is part of the Microsoft Office package. Access uses a graphical interface, which makes it possible for less advanced users to build a database. Access also includes functionality to build a frontend. However with VBA you can add even more functionality to Access.
The course VBA Access Programming starts with a discussion of the VBA Editor, entering code and executing the code step by step with the debugger.
Next the syntax of VBA is discussed with variables, operators, procedures, functions, parameters, objects and modules.
Also covered is how to control the output of the code by means of if and else statements, select clauses and for loops. Arrays are then also addressed.
Events are generated by user interaction such as pressing buttons or entering commands via the keyboard. These events are important for controlling Access and should be handled in event procedures.
Additionally attention is paid to how you can give forms and reports more functionality with VBA Access.
Finally the Data Access Object model (DAO) and its properties and functions are discussed. With DAO and VBA information can be retrieved from any Access database and the data can be sorted and filtered. With DAO it is also possible to connect to Access databases from Word and Excel with VBA.
This course is intended for anyone who wants to learn how to use VBA, Visual Basic for Applications, and the DAO object model in Access to add functionality to forms, reports and databases.
Knowledge of and experience with Access is required to participate in this course. Programming experience is beneficial to a proper understanding.
The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. Illustrative demos provide further clarification of the concepts. The theory is interspersed with practical exercises.
After successful completion of the course the participants receive an official certificate Access Programming with VBA.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
