This hands-on, experiential, student-based manual is a highly visual step-by-step approach to creating applied technological or business database examples. It assumes that the student has no experience or background with MS Access software or
databases. The intent is to leave the student with a solid foundational core to use and to build upon. It is a very user-friendly manual and is meant for self-paced learning with little or no input from an instructor. The manual proceeds to take the
- Building a database structure
- Filling it with data
- Queries (simple, complex and conditional)
- Expression builder
- Action queries, (Make Table, Delete, Append, Update)
- Parameter queries (Parameter, Group by)
- Construction of forms, subforms, and subdatasheets
- Construction of reports
- Importing Excel data
- Referential Integrity
- Relationships (One to many, Many to many)
- Primary key
- Foreign key
- Input Mask Expressions
The concept of developing calculated columns using formulas, functions and the expression builder is also incorporated in the development of reports.
Distance delivery and e-learning classes are greatly enhanced with the use of these materials as questions are answered by working through the materials. The manual is designed for a 25-hour (or less) course depending on the depth required.
What’s new in Access 2013? In a word, apps. An Access web app is a new type of database that you build in Access, then use and share with others as a
SharePoint app in a web browser. To build an app, you just select the type of data you want to track (contacts, tasks, projects, and so on). Access creates
the database structure, complete with views that let you add and edit data. Navigation and basic commands are built-in, so you can start using your app right away.
Getting started with apps
Building an app
Using your SharePoint server or Office 365 site as a host, you’ll be able to build a polished, browser-based database app. Under the hood, Access apps use
SQL Server to provide the best performance and data integrity. On the startup screen, click Custom web app.
Note With Access 2013, you can still create traditional desktop databases from scratch. Or, try out a template to create an app, a desktop database, or an Access 2010-style web database.
Quickly add tables to your app using pre-designed table templates. If you’re tracking tasks, search for the Tasks template and click it.
If you see the multiple-table indicator next to a template, that means Access will add commonly used related tables for you so you can get started with a truly relational database (relational database: A type of database that stores information in tables. Uses
matching values from two tables to relate data in one table to data in the other table. In a relational database, you typically store a specific type of data just once.). Access creates views for each table that display data from related tables.
Import data from Access desktop databases, Microsoft Excel files, ODBC data sources (ODBC data source: Data and the information needed to access that data from programs and databases that support the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) protocol.), text files, and SharePoint lists.
Opening in a browser
When you’re done designing, don’t look for a compatibility checker or a Publish button. Your app is already live—just click Launch App.
UI created automatically
Access apps save you the trouble of building views, switchboards and other user interface (UI) elements. Table names show up on the left edge of the window, and the views for each table appear across the top:
All apps have a similar navigation structure, making it easier for people to learn and switch between apps. You can always add more custom views besides the ones provided by the app.
The Action Bar
The built-in views each have an Action Bar with buttons for adding, editing, saving, and deleting items. You can add more buttons to this bar to run any custom macros you build, or you can remove buttons you don’t want people to use.
Views easier to modify
Apps let you put controls where you want them without making adjustments to the layout first. Just drag and drop—the other controls move out of the way to make room.
Callouts for setting properties
Instead of searching through a property sheet for a particular setting, settings are available via callouts located conveniently next to each section or control.
New controls for working with related data
Related Items control
The Related Items control provides a quick way to list and summarize data from a related table or query. Click an item to open a detail view for that item.
The AutoComplete control looks up data from a related table. Think of a combo box that works more like an instant search box.
Drill-through links let you quickly view details about a related item. Access apps handle the behind-the-scenes logic to make sure the right data is displayed.
New deployment options
Get more control over who can modify your app. SharePoint now comes with three default permissions levels – Designer, Author, and Reader. Only Designers can make design changes to views and tables. Authors can change data but not the design, and Readers (you guessed it) can only read existing data.
Package and distribute apps
Access apps can be saved as package files and then added to your Corporate Catalog or the Office Store. At the Office Store, you can distribute your app for free, or you can charge a fee and make some spending money.
