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 Glendale CA 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.

Because Access is such a rapid application-development environment, the maintenance period tends to be much more extended than the one for a mainframe or DOS-based application. Users are much more demanding; the more you give them, the more they want. For a consultant, this is great. Just don’t get into a fixed-bid situation. Because of the scope of the application changing, you could very well end up on the losing end of that deal. There are three categories of maintenance activities:\
You need to handle bug fixes as quickly as possible. The implications of specification changes need to be clearly explained to the user, including the time and cost involved in making the requested changes. As far as extras go, try to involve the users as much as possible in adding frills by teaching them how to enhance forms and reports and by making the application as flexible and user-defined as possible. Of course, the final objective of any application is a happy group of productive users.
Access 2007 was a major upgrade for Microsoft Access. New versions have added some minor tweaks so features in Access 2007 are carried through to new versions.
The features new to forms include the following: The ability to quickly create a form with Quick Create A new view called Layout view The ability to work with Stacked and Tabular layouts Split forms Alternating background colors New filtering features for form data.
Reports also sport a plethora of new features. Many of the features are similar to those provided for reports. They include the following: The ability to create a report with Quick Create A new view called Layout view The ability to work with Stacked and Tabular layouts New Group, Sort, and Totals features.
What Every Developer Needs to Know About Databases and Tables
You might find it is useful to think of table design as similar to the process of building a foundation for your house. Just as a house with a faulty foundation will fall over, an application with a poor table design will be difficult to build, maintain, and use. This chapter covers all the ins and outs of table design in Access 2007. After reading this chapter, you will be ready to build the other components of your application, knowing that the tables you design provide the application with a strong foundation.
Creating a New Database
In generic terms, a database stores a collection of information. Access databases are composed of tables, queries, forms, reports, data access pages, macros, and modules. Each table within a database should contain information about a particular subject. You use queries to extract specific information from one or more tables. The forms and reports provide a means of displaying your data. Finally, macros and modules allow you to build an integrated application. When you are building an Access application, the first step you must take is to perform the necessary analysis and design steps. The section in Chapter 1 titled “How Do I Get Started Developing an Access Application?” covers these initial steps. After you have a design document in place, you are ready to build the Access database. You can complete this process by basing your database on a template or by building the database yourself from the ground up. The text that follows covers both of these options.
