Chapter 15. Automating Your Database > THE ABSOLUTE MINIMUM

THE ABSOLUTE MINIMUM

As you work with a database, you’ll usually find that more and more objects accumulate in it and that you perform more and more repetitive tasks. That’s when you should start thinking about automating the work. Access offers a number of ways to make things easier in a database:

  • The Switchboard Manager lets you build and maintain switchboard forms to organize your objects into sensible groups.

  • Startup options let you control some of the look and feel of your database, and they provide an easy starting point for yourself or other users.

  • Macros can automate most common Access tasks, from opening forms to searching for records.

  • You can turn macros into buttons by dragging them from the Database window and dropping them on forms.
