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.

Removing a Field from the Query Design Grid

To remove a field from the query design grid, follow these steps:

1. Find the field you want to remove.

2. Click the small horizontal gray button (column selector) immediately above the name of the field. The entire column of the query design grid should become black.

3. Press the Delete key or click Delete Columns in the Query Setup group of the Design tab.

Assume that you have decided to remove the Region field from the query design grid. Use the horizontal scrollbar to see the Country/Region field on the query design grid, and then do the following:

1. Click the column selector immediately above the Country/Region field. The entire column of the query design grid should become black, and the cursor turns into a downward-pointing arrow.

2. Press the Delete key to remove the Country/Region field from the query design grid.

Inserting a Field After the Query Is Built The process for inserting a field after a query is built differs, depending on where you want to insert the new field. If you want to insert it after the existing fields, the easiest method is to double-click the name of the field you want to add. If you prefer to insert the new field between two existing fields, the best approach is to click and drag the field you want to add, dropping it onto the field you want to appear to the right of the inserted field. To insert the Business Phone field between the Job Title and Home Phone fields, click and drag the Business Phone field from the table until it’s on top of the Home Phone field. This technique inserts the field in the correct place. To run the query, click Run on the ribbon.

Moving a Field to a Different Location on the Query Design Grid Although the user can move a column while in a query’s Datasheet view, sometimes you want to permanently alter the position of a field in the query output. You can do this as a convenience to the user or, more importantly, because you will use the query as a foundation for forms and reports. The order of the fields in the query becomes the default order of the fields on any forms and reports you build using any of the wizards. You can save yourself quite a bit of time by ordering your queries effectively. To move a single column, follow these steps:

1. Select a column while in the query’s Design view by clicking its column selector (the button immediately above the field name).

2. Click the selected column a second time and then drag it to a new location on the query design grid.

Follow these steps to move more than one column at a time:

1. Drag across the column selectors of the columns you want to move.

2. Click any of the selected columns a second time and then drag them to a new location on the query design grid.

Move the First Name and Last Name fields so that they appear before the Company field. Do this by clicking and dragging from the column selector for First Name to the column selector for Last Name. Both columns should be selected. Click again on the column selector for either column and then click and drag until the thick black line jumps to the left of the Company field.
