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.

Pitfalls of Multitable Queries
You should be aware of some pitfalls of multi table queries; they involve updating as well as which records you see in the query output. Remember that you can’t update certain fields in a multi table query. These are the join fields on the “one” side of a one-to many relationship (unless the Cascade Update Referential Integrity feature has been activated). You also can’t update the join field on the “many” side of a relationship after you’ve updated data on the “one” side. More importantly, which fields can be updated, and the consequences of updating them, might surprise you. If you update the fields on the “one” side of a one-to-many relationship, you must be aware of that change’s impact. You’re actually updating that record in the original table on the “one” side of the relationship; several records on the “many” side of the relationship will be affected.
For example, Figure 4.14 shows the result of a query based on the Customers, Orders, and Order Details tables. I have changed “Company AA” to “Business AA” on a specific record of my query output. You might expect this change to affect only that specific order detail item. Pressing the down-arrow key to move off the record shows that all records associated with Company AA have been changed (see Figure 4.15). This happened because all the orders for Company AA were actually getting their information from one record in the Customers table—the record for ID 27. This is the record I modified while viewing the query result.
To get this experience firsthand, try changing the data in the City field for one of the records in the query result. Notice that the record (as well as several other records) is modified. This happens because the City field actually represents data from the “one” side of the one-to-many relationship. In other words, when you’re viewing the Country/Region and City fields for several records in the query output, the data for the fields might originate from one record. The same goes for the Order Date field because it’s also on the “one” side of a one-to-many relationship. The only field in the query output that can’t be modified is TotalPrice, a calculated field. Practice modifying the data in the query result and then returning to the original table and noticing which data has changed.
The second pitfall of multitable queries is figuring out which records result from such a query. So far, you have learned how to build only inner joins. Join types are covered in detail in Chapter 12, but for now, it’s important to understand that the query output contains all customers, regardless if they have orders, and all orders, regardless if they have order detail. This means that not all customers and all orders are listed. In Chapter 12, you’ll learn how to build queries in which you can list only customers who have orders. You’ll also learn how to list only the customers without orders.
