Understanding How You Can Update Query Results
If you haven’t realized it yet, you can usually update the results of your query. This means that if you modify the data in the query output, the data in the tables underlying the query is permanently modified. Build a query based on the Customers table. Add the ID, Company, Address, City, and Country/Region fields to the query design grid; then run the query. Change the address of a particular customer and make a note of the customer ID of the customer whose address you changed. Make sure you move off the record so that Access writes the change to disk. Close the query, open the actual table in Datasheet view, and find the record whose address you modified. Notice that the change you made was written to the original table; the reason is that a query result is a dynamic set of records that maintains a link back to the original data. You get this result whether you’re on a standalone machine or on a network.
Building Queries Based on Multiple Tables
If you have properly normalized your table data, you probably want to bring the data from your tables back together by using queries. Fortunately, you can do this quite easily with Access queries. The query in Figure 4.11 joins the Customers, Orders, and Order Details tables, pulling fields from each. Notice that the ID and Company fields are selected from the Customers table, the Order ID and Order Date from the Orders table, and the Unit Price and Quantity from the Order Details table. After running this query, you should see the results shown in Figure 4.12. By creating a multi table query, you can look at data from related tables, along with the data from the Order Details table.
Build a query that combines information from the Customers, Orders, and Order Details tables. To do this, build a new query by following these steps:
1. Click to select the Create tab.
2. Click Query Design in the Other group. The Show Table dialog box appears.
3. From the Show Table dialog box, select Customers, Orders, and Order Details by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on each table name. Then select Add.
4. Click Close.
5. Some of the tables included in the query might be hiding below. If so, scroll down using the vertical scrollbar to view any tables that aren’t visible. Notice the join lines between the tables; they’re based on the relationships set up in the Relationships window.
6. Select the following fields from each table:
Customers: Country/Region, City
Orders: Order Date
Order Details: Unit Price, Quantity
7. Sort by Country/Region and then City in ascending order. Your finished query design should look like the one in Figure 4.13.
8. Run the query. Data from all three tables should be included in the query output.
To remove a table from a query, click anywhere on the table in the top half of the query design grid and press the Delete key. You can add tables to the query at any time by clicking the Show Table button on the ribbon. If you prefer, you can select the Navigation Pane and then click and drag tables directly from the Navigation Pane to the top half of the query design grid.
