The Macro Design Facility—An Overview

This section explains how to work with the macro design facility in Microsoft Access.

Working with the Macro Design Window

Open the Wedding List Macro sample database (WeddingMC.mdb). Click the Macros button in the Database window, and then click the New button to open a new Macro window similar to the one shown in Figure 21-4 on the next page. In the upper part of the Macro window you define your new macro, and in the lower part you enter settings, called arguments, for the actions you’ve selected for your macro. The upper part shows at least two columns, Action and Comment. You can view all four columns shown in Figure 21-4 by clicking the Macro Names and Conditions buttons on the toolbar. You can also display these two optional columns in all new macros by choosing Options from the Tools menu and setting the Names column and Conditions column options under Show in Macro Design on the View tab.
