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.

Image Controls

Image controls are your best option for displaying static images, such as logos, on a report (see Figure 6.15). You can modify an unbound object after it is placed on a report, but you can’t open the object application and modify an image when it’s placed on a report. This limitation, however, means far fewer resources are needed, so performance improves noticeably.

Other Controls

As mentioned in a previous section, it’s standard to include mostly labels and text boxes on your reports, but you can add other controls when appropriate. To add any other type of control, click to select the control; then click and drag to place it on the report.

What Report Properties Are Available, and Why Should You Use Them?

Reports have many different properties that you can modify to change how the report looks and performs. Like Form properties, Report properties are divided into categories: Format, Data, Event, and Other. To view a report’s properties, first select the report, rather than a section of the report, in one of two ways:

• Click the Report Selector, which is the small gray button at the intersection of the horizontal and vertical rulers.

• Select Report from the drop-down in the property sheet.

After you have selected a report, you can view and modify its properties.

Working with the Property Sheet

When you select the report, the property sheet shows all the properties associated with the report. To select the report and open the property sheet at the same time, double-click the Report Selector. A report has numerous properties available on the property sheet (additional properties are available only from code) broken down into the appropriate categories in the property sheet. Forty of the properties relate to the report’s format, data, and other special properties; the remaining properties relate to the events that occur when a report is run. The format, data, and other properties are covered here, and the event properties are covered in Chapter 11.

The Report’s Format Properties

A report has the following Format properties for changing the report’s physical appearance:

• Caption—The Caption property of the report is the text that appears in the Report window’s title bar when the user is previewing the report. You can modify it at runtime to customize it for a particular situation.

• Default View—The Default View property of the report determines whether a report automatically opens in Report view or Print Preview.

• Allow Report View—The Allow Report View property of the report determines whether a user can switch to Report view. The Allow Layout View property of the report determines whether a user can switch to Layout view.

• Auto Resize—The Auto Resize property was introduced with Access 2002. This setting determines whether a report is resized automatically to display all the data on the report.

• Auto Center—The Auto Center property was introduced with Access 2002. You use the Auto Center property to designate whether you want the Report window to automatically be centered on the screen.

• Fit to Page—The Fit to Page property of the report determines whether the report will expand to fit a page
