Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Create a new module in your database, called modSimpleMacros.

Within this module, create a procedure called ShowSpielbergFilms which:

  • Opens the qryFilmsByStevenSpielberg query containing films by the man himself;
  • Displays the message shown below; then
  • Closes the table back down again.

To work out how to open a query, type DoCmd. in hopefully and see what comes up!

Here is the message that your macro should display:

Access VBA Macros exercise - The VBA code editor (image 1)

The message will appaer on top of the query listing Spielberg films

Save and close this module.
