Building Automation into Your Project

Access can help you build a quick macro in response to a control's event. There are two ways you can build an event:

□ Click the Build button on the toolbar (it looks like a magic wand).

□ Click to select the control and choose its properties. Click the Event tab of the Properties dialog box. When you click the event you want, an Ellipses icon will appear next to the event. Click the icon to launch the builder, as shown in Figure 1-15.

You can choose the Expression Builder, the Macro Builder, or the Code Builder. Choosing the Expression Builder displays Figure 1-16.
