Micrososft Access 2019 Chart Features

Can I Create A Chart On A Form Or Report In Microsoft Access? - Yes

A chart is a graphic that displays numeric data in a compact, visual layout and that reveals essential data relationships. You can add a chart to a form/report to visualize your data and make informed decisions. You can bind the chart to a table or query and customize the chart with a variety of properties. You can even make the chart interactive. For example, if you select a different category field on a form or report filter, you see different chart values. In Access, you can create column, line, bar, pie, and combo charts.

Feature Points About Access Chart Features In 2019

  • Everything that was possible with the "old" chart control should be possible with the new "Modern Charts" as well.
  • The old MSGraph Chart control will still be available in the future. So, there is no migration pressure to adopt the new chart control.
  • The SaveAsText-/LoadFromText-Methods which are essential for SCC will fully support the new Chart Control.
  • It will be possible to use "Modern Charts" in continuous forms! - This is not possible with the current, ActiveX based solution.
  • All its properties and settings will be available manually during design view as well as with VBA code during run time.

Important Considerations About Microsoft Access Charts

Aggregation

Although the data source often begins as a set of nonaggregated data, as you create a chart, by default Access creates aggregate calculations, uch as Sum, Count, and Average, on fields to help simplify the number of data series. However, you can remove the default aggregate calculations by selecting None in the drop-down list. This process of selecting fields and choosing aggregations creates a SELECT, SQL GROUP BY, or TRANSFORM statement that is stored in the Transformed Row Source property. To see the statement, right-click the property and select Zoom. The following is a summary of the three main possibilities:

If you select Axis (Category) and Values (Y Axis) fields but remove the aggregations, Access converts the row source to a simpler SELECT statement. For example:

SELECT [Segment], [Sales] FROM [Orders] If you select Axis (Category) and Values (Y Axis) fields, Access converts the row source to a GROUP BY statement. For example:

SELECT [Segment], Sum([Sales]) AS [SumOfSales FROM [Orders] GROUP BY [Segment] ORDER BY [Segment] If you also select a Legend (Series) field, Access converts the row source to a crosstab query (using the TRANSFORM SQL query statement). The field values returned by the PIVOT clause of the TRANSFORM SQL query statement are used as column headings, such as a State field, which could create many headings -- each a separate data series. For example:

TRANSFORM Sum([Sales]) AS [SumOfSales] SELECT [Segment] FROM [Orders] GROUP BY [Segment] ORDER BY [Segment] PIVOT [State] For more information, about data aggregation, see Make summary data easier to read by using a crosstab query.

Properties

To further customize the chart, select Design > Property Sheet > , which displays all the chart-related properties. ress F1 on each property to get help on that property. When you modify a property in the Property sheet, the corresponding value changes in the Chart Settings pane and vice versa.

There are many Format properties unique to charts. you can use these to format axes values, titles, and the chart. There are also several Data properties unique to charts, including Preview Live Data, Transformed Row Source; Chart Axis, Chart Legend, and Chart Value.

Adding a secondary vertical axis

When you create a chart, there is usually a primary vertical axis, but you can add a secondary vertical axis when data varies widely or to plot different measures, such as price and volume. The scale of the secondary verticalaxis shows the values for its associated data series. To add a secondary vertical axis, use the Plot Series On property on the Format tab of the Chart Settings pane.

Adding a trend line

For numeric data, you may want to add a trend line to show data tendencies. You can use the Trend Line and Trend Line Name options on the Format tab of the Chart Settings pane.

Modify the chart

To modify a chart, open the form or report in Design or Layout view, and then select the chart which opens the Chart Settings pane. To switch to a different chart type, select a different chart from the Chart Type property drop-down list. You can also change any single chart to a Combo chart by changing the Chart Type property on the property sheet (and not the Format tab of the Chart Settings pane).

Refresh source data

To refresh chart data, switch to form or report view, select the chart, and then select Refresh All (or press F5).

Chart Settings

If the Chart Settings pane is closed, make sure the chart is selected, and then select Design > Chart Settings.

Microsoft Purchases Large Property In The State Of Arizona

Seeing demand growth for its cloud services by customers on the US West Coast, Microsoft is close to kicking off data center construction on one of two large sites in Goodyear, Arizona, that will host its fifth West Coast cloud availability region.

A Microsoft spokesman told local news outlet AZ Central that the company plans to build data centers on both the site near the Phoenix Goodyear Airport it bought last year and the site about 10 miles away it bought just last week.

Microsoft issued the statement after AZ Central reviewed unredacted site plans for the location near the airport provided by local planning officials that show two buildings, but the site can accommodate three more.

The first building, already scheduled for the first phase of development, will be about 245,000 square feet, with 3,000 square feet of office space. The second, not scheduled for development yet, will be about 243,000 square feet, with 2,000 square feet of office space.

This material first appeared in an article in Data Center Knowledge April, 2018.

Microsoft keeps growing and expanding into more computer based industries. With the succcess in recent years of the Microsoft Surface family of computers, plus the excellent stability of the the Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft has a firm grasp of the PC market. Microsoft is now creating more de-centralized locations of operation, to better serve clients and make their products more accessible.

What Is Microsoft Access?

Attribution for content is located at end of this article.

Microsoft Access is a proprietary database management system (DBMS) that is part of the MS Office suite of productivity tools. It is sold either as a standalone utility or bundled as part of Office Professional and other premium editions of Microsoft's business software suite.

Office 365 subscriptions include Microsoft Access, but it is restricted to "PC only." The current version of Access (Microsoft Access 2019 as of this writing) is usually provided with an Office 365 account.

Microsoft Access uses the Microsoft JET (Joint Engine Technology) Database Engine that is also used for SQL Server Express and Visual Basic. Since Access is limited in capacity from a database size standpoint, a JET database can be "up-sized" to an SQL Server or Azure SQL product that is more suited to very large databases.

In addition to JET, Microsoft Access comprises application development tools and a graphical user interface, or GUI.

Microsoft Access is a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), but it is also an application generator with all the tools required, such as templates, forms, queries and reports. It can also be used in a non-relational manner, hence the years-old argument about whether it is, in fact, an RDBMS or just a DMBS.

Microsoft itself highlights the fact that, with Access, you can create "database apps" that are highly customizable, and store data in SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL (separate subscriptions required.)
