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.

Saving and Naming Your Query To save your query at any time, click the Save button on the Quick Access toolbar. If the query is a new one, Access prompts you to name your query. Query names should begin with the tag qry so that you can easily recognize and identify them as queries. It’s important to understand that, when you save a query, you’re saving only the query’s definition, not the actual query result. Return to the design of the query. To save your work, click Save on the Quick Access toolbar that appears to the right of the Microsoft Access button. When prompted for a name, call the query qryCustomers.

Ordering Your Query Result When you run a new query, notice that the query output appears in no particular order, but generally, you want to order it. You can do this by using the Sort row of the query design grid. To order your query result, follow these steps:

1. In Design view, click within the query design grid in the Sort cell of the column you want to sort.

2. Use the drop-down combo box to select an ascending or descending sort.

To sort in ascending order by the Company field, follow these steps:

1. In Design view, click in the Sort row of the query design grid for the Company field.

2. Open the Sort drop-down combo box.

3. Select Ascending.

4. Run your query and view the results. Your records should now be ordered by the Company field.

5. If you want to return to the query’s design, click View on the toolbar.

Sorting by More Than One Field Quite often, you want to sort your query output by more than one field. The columns you want to sort must be placed in order from left to right on the query design grid, with the column you want to act as the primary sort on the far left and the secondary, tertiary, and any additional sorts following to the right. If you want the columns to appear in a different order in the query output, you must move them manually in Datasheet view after you run the query. Sort the query output by the Country/Region field and, within individual country groupings, by the Last Name and First Name fields. Because sorting always occurs from left to right, you must place the Country/Region field before the LastName and FirstName fields.

Refining Your Query with Criteria So far, you have learned how to select the fields you want and how to indicate the sort order for your query output. One of the important features of queries is the capability to limit your output by selection criteria. Access allows you to combine criteria by using any of several operators to limit the criteria for one or more fields.

Criteria entered for two fields on a single line of the query design grid are considered an And, which means that both conditions need to be true for the record to appear in the query output. Entries made on separate lines of the query design grid are considered an Or, which means that either condition can be true for the record to be included in the query output. Take a look at the example in Figure 4.8; this query would output all records in which the Job Title field begins with either Marketing or Owner, regardless of the last name. It outputs the records in which the Job Title field begins with Sales only for the customers whose last names begin with the letters M through R inclusive.
