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.

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.

Formatting a Form Layout

Whenever you want to apply formatting to all the controls in a layout, simply select the layout and then apply the necessary formatting. All controls within the layout are affected by the change. For example, if you select a layout and modify the font, the font will change for all controls within the layout.

Moving Controls Within a Form Layout

After you have created a layout, you might want to move a column within it. This simple process takes four steps:

1. Select the appropriate control within the layout (the control that you want to move).

2. Hover your mouse pointer over the control. Be sure the mouse pointer does not appear as a sizing handle.

3. Click and drag the control to its new location. Notice that a horizontal or vertical bar appears as you drag the control, indicating its new location (see Figure 5.25).

4. Release the mouse button. The control appears in its new location.

Adding Columns to a Form Layout

Sometimes you will want to add a field from the Field List window to the layout. The process is quite simple: Select the field in the Field List window and drag it over the layout. A horizontal or vertical bar appears, indicating where the field will be placed when you release the mouse button.

In another situation, you might want to add existing controls on the form to your layout. This process differs depending on whether you are in Design view or Layout view. If the form is open in Design view, follow these steps:

1. Click to select the first control that you want to add to the control layout.

2. Hold down the Shift key and click to select any additional controls that you want to include in the layout. These fields can even be in other layouts.

3. If the form is open in Design view, simply drag the selected fields to the layout. A horizontal or vertical bar appears, indicating where the fields will be placed when you release the mouse button.

If the form is open in Layout view, here are the steps involved:

1. Click to select the first control that you want to add to the control layout.

2. Hold down the Shift key and click to select any additional controls that you want to include in the layout. These fields can even be in other layouts.

3. Click to select the Arrange tab (see Figure 5.26).

4. Select the type of layout to which you are adding the controls (Tabular or Stacked). Access creates a new layout and adds the selected controls to it.

5. Drag the new layout to the existing layout. A horizontal or vertical bar indicates where the fields will be placed when you release the mouse button. The layout with the added fields appears as shown in Figure 5.27.

Removing Columns from a Form Layout

Removing columns from a layout requires these steps:

1. Click to select the columns that you want to remove from the layout.

2. Right-click one of the controls that you want to remove and select Layout, Remove. Access removes the field from the layout but does not remove it from the form. The control can now be moved, formatted, and in other ways manipulated independent of the controls in the layout.
