You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Have a look at the table tblLanguage:

Access VBA Macros exercise - Recordsets (image 1)

It's not clear what the rating means - but fortunately it doesn't matter!

Create a module called modRecordsets.

Within this new module, create 3 new procedures as follows:

  • One called AddLanguages to add Latin (rating 2) and Swedish (rating 1) to the table
  • One called DeleteBadLanguages to delete any languages with rating of 2 or less from the table
  • One called UpdateRatings which increases the rating of every "good" language (ie of every language with a rating of 5 or more) by 1 whenever you run the procedure

Be very careful when you run the program to delete bad languages that it doesn't delete all of them - it might be an idea to step through your macro at this point!

Save and close your module.
