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.

Microsoft Azure

MS Azure is Microsoft's cloud computing service. It is used for development, testing and deployment as well as managing software applications through a global network data centers managed by Microsoft. Azure now features SQL Server called Azure SQL.

Selecting Report Objects

To select a single report object, click it; selection handles appear around the selected object. After you select the object, you can modify any of its attributes (properties), or you can size, move, or align it.

To select multiple objects so that you can manipulate them as a unit, use one of the following techniques:

• Hold down the Shift key as you click multiple objects. Each object you click is then added to the selection.

• Place your mouse pointer in a blank area of the report. Click and drag to lasso the objects you want to select. When you let go of the mouse, any object even partially within the lasso is selected.

• Click and drag within the horizontal or vertical ruler. As you click and drag, lines appear indicating the potential selection area. When you release the mouse, all objects within the lines are selected.

Make sure you understand which objects are actually selected; attached labels can cause some confusion. Figure 6.12 shows a report with four objects selected: the Client ID and Intro Date labels and the CompanyName and DefaultRate text boxes. The Company Name and Default Rate labels and the ClientID and IntroDate text boxes are not selected. If you were to modify the properties of the selected objects, those controls would be unaffected.

Moving Objects Around

If you want to move a single control along with its attached label, click the object and drag it to a new location. The object and the attached label move as a unit. To move multiple objects, use one of the methods explained in the preceding section to select the objects you want to move. After you select the objects, click and drag any of them; the selected objects and their attached labels move as a unit.

Moving an object without its attached label is a trickier process. When placed over the center or border of a selected object (not on a sizing handle), the mouse pointer looks like a hand with all five fingers pointing upward. This indicates that the selected object and its attached label move as a unit, maintaining their relationship to one another. However, if you place your mouse pointer directly over the selection handle in the object’s upperleft corner, the mouse pointer looks like a cross-bar. This indicates that the object and the attached label move independently of one another so that you can alter the distance between them.

Aligning Objects with One Another

To align objects with one another, you must select them first. Click the Arrange tab. Then select the appropriate button in the Control Alignment group. The selected objects will align in relation to each other.


Watch out for a few “gotchas” when you’re aligning report objects: If you select several text boxes and their attached labels and align them, Access tries to align the left sides of the text boxes with the left sides of the labels. To avoid this problem, you have to align the text boxes separately from their attached labels.

During the alignment process, Access never overlaps objects. For this reason, if the objects you’re aligning don’t fit, Access can’t align them. For example, if you try to align the bottom of several objects horizontally and they don’t fit across the report, Access aligns only the objects that fit on the line.
