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 New Haven CO 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.

Row Fix-Up in Multitable Queries
The Row Fix-Up feature is automatically available to you in Access. As you fill in keynvalues on the “many” side of a one-to-many relationship in a multitable query, the nonkey values are automatically looked up in the parent table. Most database developers refer to this as enforced referential integrity. A foreign key must first exist on the “one” side of the query to be entered successfully on the “many” side. As you can imagine, you don’t want to be able to add an order to your database for a nonexistent customer. For example, the query in Figure 4.16 is based on the Customers and Orders tables. The fields included in the query are Customer ID from the Orders table; Company, Address, and City from the Customers table; and Order ID from the Orders table. If the Customer ID associated with an order is changed, the Company, Address, and City are looked up from the Customers table and immediately displayed in the query result. Notice in Figure 4.17 how the information for Business AA is displayed in the query result. Figure 4.18 shows that the Company, Address, and City change automatically when the Customer ID is changed to Company AA. Don’t be confused by the combo box used to select the customer ID. The presence of the combo box within the query is a result of Access’s auto-lookup feature, covered in Chapter 2, “What Every Developer Needs to Know About Databases and Tables.” The customer ID associated with a particular order is actually being modified in the query. If the user adds a new record to the query, Access fills in the customer information as soon as the user selects the customer ID associated with the order.
Creating Calculated Fields
One of the rules of data normalization is that the results of calculations shouldn’t be included in your database. You can output the results of calculations by building those calculations into your queries, and you can display the results of the calculations on forms and reports by making the query the foundation for a form or report. You can also add controls to your forms and reports containing the calculations you want. In certain cases, this can improve performance. (This topic is covered in more depth in Chapter 16, “Debugging: Your Key to Successful Development.”) The columns of your query result can hold the result of any valid expression, including the result of a user-defined function. This makes your queries extremely powerful.
You can enter any valid expression in the Field row of your query design grid. Notice that field names included in an expression are automatically surrounded by square brackets, unless your field name has spaces. If a field name includes any spaces, you must enclose the field name in brackets; otherwise, your query won’t run properly. This is just one of the many reasons why field and table names shouldn’t contain spaces.
