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 Baltimore MD 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.

In Access 2002, Microsoft separated out each type of view as an additional property for the form. Allow Form View specifies whether the user is permitted to switch to the Form view of a form.
• Allow Datasheet View—Determines whether the user is permitted to switch to the Datasheet view of a form.
• Allow PivotTable View—Determines whether the user is allowed to switch to the PivotTable view of a form.
• Allow PivotChart View—Determines whether the user is allowed to switch to the PivotChart view of a form.
• Allow Layout View—Determines whether the user is allowed to switch to the Layout view of a form.
• Picture, Picture Type, Picture Size Mode, Picture Alignment, and Picture Tiling—The Picture properties let you select and customize the attributes of a bitmap used as the background for a form.
• Width—Used to specify the form’s width. This option is most often set graphically by clicking and dragging to select an appropriate size for the form. You might want to set this property manually when you want more than one form to be the same size.
• Auto Center—Specifies whether you want the form to automatically be centered within the Application window whenever it’s opened.
• Auto Resize—Determines whether the form is automatically sized to display a complete record.
• Fit to Screen—Determines whether Access reduces the width of the form to the width of the screen.
• Border Style—The Border Style property is far more powerful than its name implies. The options for the Border Style property are None, Thin, Sizable, and Dialog. The border style is often set to None for splash screens, which means the form has no border. A Thin border is not resizable; the Size command isn’t available in the Control menu. This setting is a good choice for pop-up forms, which remain on top even when other forms are given the focus. A Sizable border is standard for most forms. It includes all the standard options in the Control menu. A Dialog border looks like a Thin border. A form with a border style of Dialog can’t be maximized, minimized, or resized. After the border style of a form is set to Dialog, the Maximize, Minimize, and Resize options aren’t available in the form’s Control menu. The Dialog border is often used along with the Pop Up and Modal properties to create custom dialog boxes.
• Record Selectors—Determines whether the record selectors appear. A record selector is the gray bar to the left of a record in Form view, or the gray box to the left of each record in Datasheet view. It’s used to select a record to be copied or deleted. If you give the user a custom menu, you can opt to remove the record selector to make sure the user copies or deletes records using only the features specifically built in to your application.
• Navigation Buttons—Determines whether the navigation buttons are visible. Navigation buttons are the controls that appear at the bottom of a form; they allow the user to move from record to record within the form. You should set this property to No for any dialog forms. You might want to set it to No for data entry forms, too, and add your own ribbon that enhances or limits the standard buttons’ functionality. For example, in a client/server environment, you might not want to give users the capability to move to the first or last record because that type of record movement can be inefficient in a client/server architecture.
