the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software. development tools It is a member of the Microsoft Office suite of applications included in. the professional and higher editions, Microsoft Access is just one part of Microsoft s overall data management product. It stores data in its own format based on the Access Jet Database Engine. Like relational databases Microsoft Access also allows you to link related. information easily For example customer and order data However Access 2013. also complements other database products because it has several powerful. connectivity features, It can also import or link directly to data stored in other applications and databases. As its name implies Access can work directly with data from other sources. including many popular PC database programs with many SQL Structured Query. Language databases on the desktop on servers on minicomputers or on. mainframes and with data stored on Internet or intranet web servers. Access can also understand and use a wide variety of other data formats including. many other database file structures, You can export data to and import data from word processing files spreadsheets. or database files directly, Access can work with most popular databases that support the Open Database. Connectivity ODBC standard including SQL Server Oracle and DB2. Software developers can use Microsoft Access to develop application software. Microsoft Access stores information which is called a database To use MS Access you will. need to follow these four steps, Database Creation Create your Microsoft Access database and specify what kind.
of data you will be storing, Data Input After your database is created the data of every business day can. be entered into the Access database, Query This is a fancy term to basically describe the process of retrieving. information from the database, Report optional Information from the database is organized in a nice. presentation that can be printed in an Access Report. Architecture, Access calls anything that can have a name an object Within an Access desktop. database the main objects are tables queries forms reports macros data. macros and modules, If you have worked with other database systems on desktop computers you might.
have seen the term database used to refer to only those files in which you store. But in Access a desktop database accdb also includes all the major objects. related to the stored data including objects you define to automate the use of your. 2 MS Access RDBMS, Microsoft Access has the look and feel of other Microsoft Office products as far as its layout. and navigational aspects are concerned but MS Access is a database and more. specifically a relational database, Before MS Access 2007 the file extension was mdb but in MS Access 2007 the. extension has been changed to accdb extension, Early versions of Access cannot read accdb extensions but MS Access 2007 and. later versions can read and change earlier versions of Access. An Access desktop database accdb or mdb is a fully functional RDBMS. It provides all the data definition data manipulation and data control features that. you need to manage large volumes of data, You can use an Access desktop database accdb or mdb either as a standalone. RDBMS on a single workstation or in a shared client server mode across a network. A desktop database can also act as the data source for data displayed on webpages. on your company intranet, When you build an application with an Access desktop database Access is the.
Data Definition,Let us now understand what Data Definition is. In document or a spreadsheet you generally have complete freedom to define the. contents of the document or each cell in the spreadsheet. In a document you can include paragraphs of text a table a chart or multiple. columns of data displayed with multiple fonts, In spreadsheet you can have text data at the top to define a column header for. printing or display and you might have various numeric formats within the same. column depending on the function of the row, An RDBMS allows you to define the kind of data you have and how the data should. You can also usually define rules that the RDBMS can use to ensure the integrity of. For example a validation rule might ensure that the user can t accidentally store. alphabetic characters in a field that should contain a number. Data Manipulation, Working with data in RDBMS is very different from working with data in a word processing. or spreadsheet program, In a word processing document you can include tabular data and perform a limited.
set of functions on the data in the document, You can also search for text strings in the original document and with ActiveX. controls include tables charts or pictures from other applications. In a spreadsheet some cells contain functions that determine the result you want. and in other cells you enter the data that provides the source information for the. An RDBMS provides you many ways to work with your data For example. You can search a single table for information or request a complex search across. several related tables, You can update a single field or many records with a single command. You can write programs that use RDBMS commands to fetch data that you want to. display and allow the user to update the data, Access uses the powerful SQL database language to process data in your tables Using. SQL you can define the set of information that you need to solve a particular problem. including data from perhaps many tables,Data Control. Spreadsheets and word processing documents are great for solving single user problems. but they are difficult to use when more than one person needs to share the data. When you need to share your information with others RDBMS gives you the. flexibility to allow multiple users to read or update your data. An RDBMS that is designed to allow data sharing also provides features to ensure. that no two people can change the same data at the same time. The best systems also allow you to group changes which is also known as. transaction so that either all the changes or none of the changes appear in your. You might also want to be sure that no one else can view any part of the order until. you have entered all of it, Because you can share your Access data with other users you might need to set.
some restrictions on what various users are allowed to see or update. 3 MS Access Objects, MS Access uses objects to help the user list and organize information as well as prepare. specially designed reports When you create a database Access offers you Tables Queries. Forms Reports Macros and Modules Databases in Access are composed of many objects. but the following are the major objects, Together these objects allow you to enter store analyze and compile your data Here is. a summary of the major objects in an Access database. Table is an object that is used to define and store data When you create a new table. Access asks you to define fields which is also known as column headings. Each field must have a unique name and data type, Tables contain fields or columns that store different kinds of data such as a name. or an address and records or rows that collect all the information about a particular. instance of the subject such as all the information about a customer or employee. You can define a primary key one or more fields that have a unique value for each. record and one or more indexes on each table to help retrieve your data more. An object that provides a custom view of data from one or more tables Queries are a way. of searching for and compiling data from one or more tables. Running a query is like asking a detailed question of your database. When you build a query in Access you are defining specific search conditions to. find exactly the data you want, In Access you can use the graphical query by example facility or you can write. Structured Query Language SQL statements to create your queries. You can define queries to Select Update Insert or Delete data. You can also define queries that create new tables from data in one or more existing. Form is an object in a desktop database designed primarily for data input or display or for. control of application execution You use forms to customize the presentation of data that. your application extracts from queries or tables, Forms are used for entering modifying and viewing records.
The reason forms are used so often is that they are an easy way to guide people. toward entering data correctly, When you enter information into a form in Access the data goes exactly where the. database designer wants it to go in one or more related tables. Report is an object in desktop databases designed for formatting calculating printing. and summarizing selected data, You can view a report on your screen before you print it. If forms are for input purposes then reports are for output. Anything you plan to print deserves a report whether it is a list of names and. addresses a financial summary for a period or a set of mailing labels. Reports are useful because they allow you to present components of your database.
