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 Orlando FL 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.

Building Parameter Queries When You Don’t Know the Criteria at Design Time
You, or your application’s users, might not always know the parameters for query output when designing the query. Parameter queries let you specify different criteria at runtime so that you don’t have to modify the query each time you want to change the criteria.
For example, say you have a query, like the one shown in Figure 4.36, for which you want users to specify the date range of the data they want to view each time they run the query. The following clause has been entered as the criterion for the Order Date field:
Between [Enter Starting Date] And [Enter Ending Date]
This criterion causes two dialog boxes to appear when the user runs the query. The first one, shown in Figure 4.37, prompts the user with the criterion text in the first set of brackets (refer to Figure 4.36). The text the user types is substituted for the bracketed text. A second dialog box appears, prompting the user for whatever is in the second set of brackets. The user’s response is used as the criterion for that query.
Add a parameter to the query qryCustomerOrderSummary so that you can view only Total Price summaries within a specific range. Go to the criteria for Total Price and type Between [Please Enter Starting Value] and [Please Enter Ending Value]. This allows you to view all the records in which the total price is within a specific range. The bracketed text is replaced by actual values when the user runs the query. Click OK and run the query. You’re then prompted to enter both a starting and an ending value.
To make sure Access understands what type of data should be placed in these parameters, you must define the parameters. Do this by selecting Parameters from the Query menu to open the Query Parameters window. Another way to display the Query Parameters window is to right-click a gray area in the top half of the query design grid; then select Parameters from the ribbon while on the Design tab.
The text that appears within the brackets for each parameter must be entered in the Parameter field of the Query Parameters dialog box. The type of data in the brackets must be defined in the Data Type column. Figure 4.38 shows an example of a completed Query Parameters dialog box.
You can easily create parameters for as many fields as you want, and you add parameters just as you would add more criteria. For example, the query shown in Figure 4.39 has parameters for the Job Title, City, and Country/Region fields in the Employees table from the Northwind database. Notice that all the criteria are on one line of the query design grid, which means that all the parameters entered must be satisfied for the records to appear in the output. The criterion for the title is [Please Enter a Job Title]. This means that the records in the result must match the title entered when the query is run. The criterion for the City field is [Please Enter a City]. Only records with a city matching the city entered will appear in the result when the query is run. Finally, the criterion for the Country/Region field is [Please Enter a Country or Region]. This means that only records with the country or region entered when the query is run will appear in the output.
