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.

Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time. This client/server system is used by employees in our Atlanta GA and New York offices. MS Access Solutions and their staff worked with us to develop the necessary specifications and design documents, and then programmed, tested, and implemented the application throughout our organization.

Exchanging Axes

If you are viewing Year across the top and Country down the side, and you decide to view Year across the side and Country across the top, simply drag and drop their name buttons to switch the positions in which they appear. You can also easily drag new items to the pivot table from the PivotTable list at any time or remove them from the pivot table entirely.

Switching to PivotChart View

When you define a PivotTable view, you automatically generate a PivotChart view. You will see how evident this is by using the View tool to switch to PivotChart view. The results appear as shown in Figure 4.52. You can use Ribbon buttons to add legends and to modify the chart type.

Practical Examples: Building Queries Needed by the Time and Billing Application for a Computer Consulting Firm

Build a query based on tblTimeCardHours. This query gives you the total billing amount by project for a specific date range. The query’s design is shown in Figure 4.53. Notice that this is a Totals query that groups by project and totals by using the following expression:

BillAmount: Sum([BillableHours]*[BillingRate])

The DateWorked field is used as the Where clause for the query with this criteria:

Between [Enter Start Date] And [Enter End Date]

The two parameters of the criteria are declared in the Query Parameters dialog box (see Figure 4.54). Save this query as qryBillAmountByProject.

The second query is based on tblClients, tblProjects, and tblTimeCardHours. This query gives you the total billing amount by client for a specific date range. The query’s design is shown in Figure 4.54. This query is a Totals query that groups by the company name from the tblClients table and totals by using the following expression:

BillAmount: Sum([BillableHours]*[BillingRate])

As with the first query, the DateWorked field is used as the Where clause for the query, and the parameters are defined in the Query Parameters dialog box. Save this query as qryBillAmountByClient.

These queries are included on the sample CD-ROM in a database called CHAP4.ACCDB. Of course, if this were a completed application, you would build many other queries.

Summary This chapter covered the foundations of perhaps the most important function of a database: getting data from the database and into a usable form. You learned about the Select query used to retrieve data from a table, how to retrieve data from multiple tables, and how to use functions in your queries to make them more powerful by synthesizing data. In later chapters, you will extend your abilities with Action queries and queries based on other queries (also known as nested queries).
