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.

Working with Field Properties After you have added fields to your table, you need to customize their properties. Field properties let you control how Access stores data as well as what data the user can enter into the field. The available properties differ depending on which field type you select. You will find the most comprehensive list of properties under the Text field type (see Figure 2.8). The following sections describe each field property.

Field properties available for a Text field. Field Size: Limiting What’s Entered into a Field The first property is Field Size, available for Text and Number fields only. As mentioned previously, it’s best to set the Field Size property to the smallest value possible. For Number fields, a small size means lower storage requirements and faster performance. Build a table with the following fields and types: CompanyID: AutoNumber CompanyName: Text State: Text PhoneNumber: Text ContactDate: Date/Time CreditLimit: Currency

1. To set the Field Size property of the State field to two characters, click anywhere in the field and then type 2 in the Field Size property.

2. Switch to Datasheet view. Access prompts you to save the table. Name it tblCustomers. Because you have not assigned a primary key, Access prompts you to do so. When you try to enter data into the State field, notice that you can enter only two characters.

Format: Determining How Data Is Displayed The second property is Format, available for all but OLE Object fields and Attachment fields. It allows you to specify how Access displays your data. Access lets you select from predefined formats or create your own custom formats. The available formats differ, depending on the field’s data type. For example, with Access you can select from a variety of Date/Time formats, including Short Date (7/7/07); Long Date (Saturday, July 7, 2007); Short Time (7:17); and Long Time (7:17:11AM). The formats for a Currency field include Currency ($1,767.25); Fixed (1767.25); and Standard (1,767.25).

Set the Format property of the ContactDate field to Medium Date. Switch to Datasheet view and enter some dates in different formats, such as 07/04/07 and July 4, 2007. Notice that, no matter how you enter the dates, as soon as you tab away from the field, they appear in the format dd-mmm-yyyy as 04-Jul-07.

The behavior of the Short Date and Long Date formats is dictated by the Regional Options designated in the Control Panel.

Access 2007 supports Multiple Undo and Multiple Redo actions. You can undo and redo multiple actions in Design view for Microsoft Database (MDB) tables and queries, ACCDB forms, reports, data access pages, macros, and modules. This feature allows you to roll forward or roll back your changes in Design view in a similar fashion to working with documents under Microsoft Word or Excel.

The shortcut keys Ctrl+>, Ctrl+. (period), Ctrl+<, and Ctrl+, (comma) allow you to easily toggle between the various table views. Ctrl+> and Ctrl+. (period) take you to the next view. Ctrl+< and Ctrl+, (comma) take you to the previous view.
