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 San Francisco CA 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.

Working with Table Properties
In addition to field properties, you can specify properties that apply to a table as a whole. To access the table properties, click the Property Sheet button on the ribbon while in a table’s Design view. The available table properties are shown in Figure 2.22. The Description property is used mainly for documentation purposes. The Default View property designates the view in which the table appears when the user first opens it. The Validation Rule property specifies validations that must occur at a record level, instead of a field level. For example, credit limits might differ depending on what state a customer is in. In that case, what’s entered in one field depends on the value in another field. When you enter a table-level validation rule, it doesn’t matter in what order the user enters the data. A table-level validation rule ensures that the proper dependency between fields is enforced. The validation rule might look something like this:
[State] In (“CA”,”NY”) And [CreditLimit]<=2500 Or _
[State] In (“MA”,”AZ”) And [CreditLimit]<=3500 Or _
[State] Not In (“CA”, “NY”, “MA”, “AZ”)
This validation rule requires a credit limit of $2,500 or less for applicants in California and New York and a limit of $3,500 or less for applicants in Massachusetts and Arizona, but it doesn’t specify a credit limit for residents of any other states. Table-level validation rules can’t be in conflict with field-level validation rules.
The Validation Text property determines the message that appears when the user violates the validation rule. If this property is left blank, a default message appears.
You use the Filter property to indicate a subset of records that appear in a datasheet, form, or query. You use the Order By property to specify a default order for the records. The Filter and Order By properties aren’t generally applied as properties of a table.
The Subdatasheet Name property identifies the name of a table used as a drill-down. If this property is set to Auto, the drill-down table is automatically detected based on relationships established in the database. The Link Child Fields and Link Master Fields properties are implemented to designate the fields that are used to link the current table with the table specified in the Subdatasheet Name property. These properties should be left blank when Auto is selected for the Subdatasheet Name. You use the Subdatasheet Height property to specify the maximum height of the subdatasheet and the Subdatasheet Expanded property to designate whether the subdatasheet is automatically displayed in an expanded state.
The Orientation property determines the layout direction for the table when it is displayed. The default setting for USA English is obviously Left-to-Right. This property is language-specific, and the Right-to-Left setting is available only if you are using a language version of Microsoft Access that supports right-to-left language displays. Arabic and Hebrew are examples of right-to-left languages. By installing the Microsoft Office Multilanguage Pack and the Microsoft Office Proofing Tools for a specific language, and by enabling the specific right-to-left language under the Microsoft Office Language Settings, you can also turn on right-to-left support.
