Annual steps for S williams access DB

April 20, 2016

Perform these steps each april, until one of us retires.

constraints:  Using only MS Access 2003, not the much newer version of 2010 or 2013.  opening in newer version corrupts the db.

  1. copy the current year billing db from network home space to local folder called /old billing
  2. rename the db in network home space to following year
  3. kill the old shortcut on the desktop pointing to the previously named db
  4. create a new shortcut – browsing to the newly named db in network home space
  5. open the DB
  6. remove records from the transactions table
  7. update the date on the main form
  8. update the other form, not report, form – a form that loads when clicking on the Reports button – semantics!  Anyway, change the dates on the unbound form controls.

The end.
