Create a Point of Sale Form/Database in Access
Posted on 2014-04-01
I need some help designing a Point of Sales form/database in MS Access 2010 for a customer. Any idea of how the form should work and look is greatly appreciated.
I need a form that will start off blank (no entries) other than the form header. It needs to allow input of data on line #1 based on input from the cashier/scanner. The form could possibly have 15 or more lines based on how many different items the customer buys (1 line per item). As a line is entered I need to draw the PRODUCTCODE, NAME, LIST PRICE, and current OH Qty for the item from my PRODUCTS tables. I will SUBTRACT the quantity purchased from the OH Qty to come up with the NEW OH Qty. This NEW OH Qty needs to go back into the PRODUCTS table and become the current OH Qty (if I have 10 and sold 2 the next time I sell that item my OH Qty should be 8) once the transaction is complete. The quantity purchased multiplied by the ITEM COST will be the TOTAL for that line. When this information is complete the form goes to line #2 and continues adding lines until all items have been entered. When all lines are entered the cashier will hit the PAY button and:
1. Ask how the customer wants to pay (continue and take the money/credit card, etc.)
2. Save all of the line entries information for future reports (I do not have a table for this yet, not even sure how)
I need to track each item sold for future reports. All individual customer transactions need to be saved for reporting the total sales of each and every item by day, week, month, and year. Here I need to be able to retrieve how many of each item was sold and what the total money collected per item was (i.e. 10xMizo Drinks for a total of $25)
When the money is collected and all is saved I need to open a blank form just as if I started for the next customer.
Any examples, code and pictures will make it easier for me.
