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.

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.

Displaying Summarized Data

Including all the detail data may be much more information than you need. You can alter the query design to show only summary information. Here’s how it works:

1. Switch to Design view.

2. Click the Totals button on the Design tab of the ribbon.

3. Group by all fields except the data field and any fields that you are using for a filter.

4. Change the Total cell for any fields you are filtering by to Where.

5. Change the Total cell for the data field to Sum. The resulting query appears as shown in Figure 4.48.

6. Run the query to verify the design (see Figure 4.49).

7. Return to PivotTable view.

8. To add grand totals, click any one of the Total buttons to select all three columns and then click the AutoCalc button on the Design tab of the ribbon.

9. Select the desired calculation from the drop-down.

10. With the columns still selected, right-click and select Hide Details.

11. Observe the summarized data (see Figure 4.50).

Filtering Pivot Table Data

By default, Access includes all data in the pivot table. You can filter the pivot table to display only selected values for a row or column. For example, you can filter to display data for only sales in specific countries. Here’s how it works:

1. Make sure that you have expanded the pivot table display to include the detail for the data on which you want to filter (see the next section, “Using Drill-Down”).

2. Click the arrow of the field button to filter. The list contains an item for each field value (see Figure 4.51).

3. Click the (All) check box to deselect all fields.

4. Click to select the field values that you want to include in the output.

5. Click OK to close the list and apply the filter.

Using Drill-Down

Generally, the initial pivot table contains an excessive amount of detail. Here’s how you can modify the amount of detail to show summary information only:

1. Switch to Design view.

2. Click the Totals button on the Design tab of the ribbon to eliminate the data grouping.

3. Return to PivotTable view. The Total or Details Fields drop zone is empty because you changed the structure of the query.

4. Click the Field List button to display the PivotTable Field List.

5. Expand the Totals item.

6. Right-click the Sum of Total item and select Delete, which clears the data from the cells.

7. Drag the Years button outside the window to remove the columns for the years, leaving an empty No Totals column.

8. Click Show Details and then drag the No Totals column outside the window. At this point, the Column Fields and Totals or Detail Fields drop zones are empty.

9. Drag the Total column to the Columns drop zone.

10. Click the Show Details button and then the Hide Details button. You will see the data expand and collapse.
