330, first paragraph

in the second sentence...."and then use an OpenDialog macro action to pass in the needed parameters for the query...." I have not found the OpenDialog macro action within Access 2013 web app environment. Does this function exist? If so, can an example of its use be provided?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Good catch. Instead of OpenDialog, that sentence should say OpenPopup instead. Earlier during the development phase of Access 2013, the product used an action called OpenDialog but that was later changed to the name OpenPopup before shipping.

1st paragraph

Is "InvoiceNumber" of 132 (160/850) pages second bank a misprint of "InvoiceAmount"?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Good catch. You are indeed correct that there is a small error in the text which we all missed. In that sentence at the top of page 1323 (printed book) InvoiceNumber was listed twice. The sentence should read: "...,set the Required property for the InvoiceDate, InvoiceNumber, and InvoiceAmount fields to Yes and....."
