Microsoft Access

MS Access is a highly flexible, robust, and reliable database program. Microsoft Access is the leading relational database management system in the world. We are a Microsoft Access developer company creating database applications for your business.

SQL Server

SQL Server is an enterprise relational database management system from Microsoft. We use SQL Server as the database server for data storage and data retrieval to and from Microsoft Access as well as other software applications, like ASP.NET and Azure.


Microsoft's application framework for web development produces dynamic web pages. ASP.NET provides web programmers with a platform for building dynamic web sites, web applications (web apps), and web services that require a web solution.

Microsoft Access Programmer Information

You can use lines to visually separate objects on your report. For example, you can place a line at the bottom of a section or underneath a subtotal. To add a line to a report, click the Line tool to select it; then click and drag to place the line on your report. When added, the line has several properties that you can modify to customize its look.


You can use rectangles to visually group items that logically belong together on the report. You can also use them to make certain controls on your report stand out. I often draw rectangles around important subtotal or grand total information that I want to make sure that the report’s reader notices.

To add a rectangle to a report, select the Rectangle tool from the ribbon; then click and drag to place the rectangle on the report.


The rectangle might obscure objects that have already been added to the report. To rectify this problem, you can set the rectangle’s Back Style property to Transparent. This setting is fine unless you want the rectangle to have a background color. If so, choose Send to Back on the Arrange tab to layer the objects so that the rectangle lies behind the other objects on the report.

Bound Object Frames

Bound object frames let you display the data in object linking and embedding (OLE) fields, which contain objects from other applications, such as pictures, spreadsheets, and word processing documents.

To add a bound object frame to a report, click the Bound Object Frame tool in the Ribbon; then click and drag the frame onto the report. Set the Control Source property of the frame to the appropriate field. You can also add a bound object frame to a report by dragging and dropping an OLE field from the field list onto the report.

Unbound Object Frames

You can use unbound object frames to add logos and other pictures to a report. Unlike bound object frames, however, they aren’t tied to underlying data.

To add an unbound object frame to a report, click the Unbound Object Frame tool in the Controls group on the Design tab of the ribbon. Click and drag the object frame to place it on the report. This opens the Insert Object dialog box, shown in Figure 6.13, which you use to create a new OLE object or insert an existing OLE object from a file on disk. If you click Create from File, the Insert Object dialog box changes to look like Figure 6.14. Click Browse and locate the file you want to include in the report. The Insert Object dialog box gives you the option of linking to or embedding an OLE object. If you select Link, a reference is created to the OLE object. Only the bitmap of the object is stored in the report, and the report continues to refer to the original file on disk. If you don’t select Link, the object you select is copied and embedded in the report and becomes part of the Access ACCDB file; no link to the original object is maintained.

Using an image control rather than an unbound object frame is usually preferable for static information like a logo because the image control requires fewer resources than an unbound object frame does. Image controls are covered in the next section.
