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.

What Are Group Header and Footer Properties, and Why Should You Use Them?

Each Group Header and Footer has its own properties that determine the behavior of the Group Header or Footer:

Force New Page—The Force New Page property can be set to None, Before Section, After Section, or Before & After. When it is set to None, no page break occurs either before or after the report section. If it is set to Before Section, a page break occurs before the report section prints; if it is set to After Section, a page break occurs after the report section prints. When this property is set to Before & After, a page break occurs before the report section prints as well as after it prints.

New Row or Col—The New Row or Col property determines whether a column break occurs whenever the report section prints. This property applies only to multicolumn reports. The choices are None, Before Section, After Section, and Before & After. Like the Force New Page property, this property determines whether the column break occurs before the report section prints, after it prints, or before and after, or whether it’s affected by the report section break at all.

Keep Together—The Keep Together property specifies whether you want Access to try to keep an entire report section together on one page. If this property is set to Yes, Access starts printing the section at the top of the next page if it can’t print the entire section on the current page. When this property is set to No, Access prints as much of the section as possible on the current page, inserting each page break as necessary. If a section exceeds the page length, Access starts printing the section on a new page and continues printing it on the following page.

Visible—The Visible property indicates whether the section is visible. It’s common to hide the visibility of a particular report section at runtime in response to different situations. You can easily do this by changing the value of the report section’s Visible property with VBA code, usually on the Format event.

Can Grow, Can Shrink—The Can Grow property determines whether the section stretches vertically to accommodate the data in it. The Can Shrink property specifies whether you want the section to shrink vertically, eliminating blank lines.

Repeat Section—The Repeat Section property is a valuable property because it lets you specify whether the group header is repeated on subsequent pages if a report section needs more than one page to print.
