Reports can be designed and formatted in the same way as we do with forms in Microsoft access database . When you create a report, four new tabs show up in the Ribbon particularly for working with reports.

Report Header and Footer

The report header and footer are shown just once in the report.

The report header is shown at the topmost part of the first page, and the report footer is shown at the lowest portion on the last page.

In the example above, the colour name will only be shown once — at the top of the first page of the report.

Page Header and Footer

The page header and footer are shown on every single page of the report. If for example, a report has 10 pages, the page header and page footer will be shown on all 10 pages. Continue reading “Create a Report in Microsoft access database 2016 – Part 2”

Create a Report in Microsoft Access 2016 – Part 1

image2Access has quite a few processes for generating reports. Any user can create a report quickly in Access, whether they’re a beginner or an expert.

With MS Access 2016, you can create a report from a table or query with the click of a button. You may also make use of the Report Wizard to guide you through the method. Similarly, more experienced users can begin with a blank report and build it exactly as they want.

Create a Report based on a ms access query

We will make a report in view of the access query we created earlier — Women’s Tops.

This query will require user input which would tell the query the colour they would like to find from the Women’s Tops list. However, the ms access query does not show the cloth colour in the output, so we will need to show this parameter on the report as well. If not, the reader would not know the colour of the garment.

Creating A Multi-Table Query

Since we have planned our question, we are prepared to design and run it. If you have made written plans for your query, make certain to reference them frequently all through the ms access query design process.

These are the steps in creating a multi-table query:

1. Choose the Query Design from the Create tab on the Ribbon.image12. In the Show Table dialog box that shows, choose each table you want to include in your query, then click Add. After adding the tables, click Close. In our example, we needed information from the Customers and Orders table, so we’ll add them. Continue reading “Designing A Multi-Table Query – Part 3”

Designing A Query in Access 2017 – Part 1

image2The true strength of a relational database lies in its capability to instantaneously fetch and analyse your data by running a query. Queries enable you to pull data from one or multiple tables based on a set of search conditions you define.

This tutorial will teach you how to make a basic one-table query. Then you will figure out how to plan and run a slightly complex multi-table query.

What are ms access query ?

Queries are a method to search for and compile data from one or multiple tables. Running a query is like asking a detailed enquiry of your database. When you build a ms access query, you are defining particular search conditions to get exactly the data you need. Continue reading “Designing A Query in Access 2017 – Part 1”

Designing A Multi-Table Query – Part 2

accessdatabasetutorial-2Queries can be hard to comprehend and fabricate if you don’t have a smart thought of what you’re trying to search and how to find it. A one-table MS access query can be simple enough to make up as you go along. However, to construct anything more powerful, you will need to plan the query initially.

Planning a MS access query

When planning a query that uses multiple tables, follow these steps:

  1. Define precisely what you wish to know. If you could ask your database any question, what would it be? Building a MS access query is more complex than just asking a question, but knowing exactly what question you wish to answer is vital to building a suitable query.
  2. Identify each type of information you want to include in your query output. Which fields contain this data?
  3. Locate the fields you want included in your MS access query. Which tables are they contained in?
  4. Determine the criteria the information in every field needs to meet. Consider the question you asked in the initial step. Which fields do you have to look for particular data? What information are you searching for? How will you search for it?

Understanding Access Database Relationships (RDBMS)

Onе оf thе fundamental principles оf аnу relational database, lіkе MS Access, іѕ thе relationship and links bеtwееn tables that maintains and better manages data inputting, time and storage.

Yоu саn building Microsoft access database that іѕ based оn јuѕt оnе table, but thаt table соuld grow аt аn alarming rate аnd уоu wоuld hаvе problems accessing thе correct records аt speed, аѕ wеll аѕ hаvіng tо input thе ѕаmе data оvеr аnd оvеr again.

Fоr instance, imagine уоu run а small business frоm home selling beauty products аnd уоu hаvе decided tо uѕе Access tо manage уоur invoices. In thіѕ database уоu create оnlу оnе table tо hold аll invoice thе details (customer nаmе аnd address, invoice number, invoice date, аnd products details etc).

Building Your First Access Database with Microsoft- Part-1

Building Your First Database with Microsoft Access 3If you possess a version of Microsoft Office that incorporates Access (Office Professional 2016 is the latest version), yet you have never used it, you are neglecting an effective tool for organizing and analysing business data.

Working with simple lists does not require you to use Access database— you can do it with Excel. Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet which offers fundamental tools for such tasks as sorting, filtering, and computing values. If you are working with complex data, Microsoft access database is the software to use. Even though you could store complex data in list form in Excel, doing so normally brings about a considerable measure of data duplication and the danger of data-entry errors. Furthermore, storing data in list form requires you to have special Excel tools like pivot tables, so you can analyse and view the data in a useful approach. That is not the situation with Access.use Pivot TablesContinue reading “Building Your First Access Database with Microsoft- Part-1”
