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 Houston TX 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.

Creating a Database Using a Template
Getting started working with Microsoft Access is easy using the new database templates. Each template is a different type of application, complete with the necessary tables, relationships, queries, forms, reports, and macros. In addition to the predefined templates that ship with Microsoft Office Access 2007, templates are also available on Microsoft Office Online. There, you can download the latest revisions to existing templates, as well as any new templates that Microsoft has created. The following categories of templates are available.
Building a Database Based on a Template
Here are the steps you take to build a new database based on a template: Click the Microsoft Office button and select New. Your screen should appear as in Figure 2.1. Click to select the category of template that you want to create. For example, in Figure 2.2, Business is selected. All the appropriate templates appear.
You can now begin working with the database just as you would work with any database.
Creating a Database from Scratch When none of the available databases that the templates generate give you what you need, you will have to create your own database. To create a new database from scratch, follow these steps: Click the Microsoft Office button and select New.
Enter a filename for the new database in the File Name box on the right side of the screen. Click the Browse icon to select a drive or folder where you will place the database. Click OK to close the browse window. Click the Create button. Access creates a new blank database. Database filenames have the following rules: Database names can contain up to 255 characters. Database names can contain spaces, but you should avoid special characters such as asterisks, semicolons, commas, and so on. Access will assign the extension .accdb to the databases that you create.
Building a New Table
You can add a new table to an Access 2007 database database in several ways: by building the table from a spreadsheet-like format, designing the table from scratch, using a table template, importing the table from another source, or linking to an external table. This chapter discusses the process of building a table using a spreadsheet-like format, designing a table from scratch, and using a table template; importing and linking.
