Microsoft Access Development
Data is important to the success of every business and organization.
You may keep your data on paper, in computer files, such as text files
or in one or more spreadsheet files. Your data can include anything
you can think of that can be represented as text and numbers and that
will benefit your organization's success. It may be your customer
information, products and inventory or analytical data.
While keeping data is very important, keeping it organized is also very
important. With other data storage methods you run into problems when
it comes to getting data back out of the system. You may keep very good
paper records but retrieving the right information quickly and at the right time
can be complicated, confusing and messy. It can also be time consuming if
your filing system is not well structured. Using computerized spreadsheets
is an improvement over paper and text documents because you can store
different but related information in separate worksheets that make up a workbook
but you can still run into issues when it comes to retrieving the information
you need because it may not be clear which worksheet holds that data.
Additionally, with all of these methods of storing data there will be
lots of duplication of data in order for you keep related data together.
This is where Microsoft Access comes into play.
Through the development of an Access database you will have a system
that stores your data in records in one or more tables. Different but
related information can be stored in separate tables that are created
specifically for the type of data you are collecting. By using IDs,
related data in separate tables can be linked together, making it
possible to track all sorts of information within a system that makes
it easy to retrieve all related data. This is referred to as a
relational database structure. An example of the benefits of a relational
database system is that you can store a customer's information once, in one
record but store their various addresses or email addresses in records in
separate tables and quickly and easily tie all of that information together.
Different users can create, modify and share your information, all in real-time.
Where Microsoft Access really shines is in the creation of an application
front-end. An application front-end provides you with the forms, reports and
functionality that makes it easy and intuitive to use the information
in your database system. Access has objects like text boxes, lists, check
boxes and charts that can be placed on forms and reports to create an elegant
user interface that creates a positive user experience for everyone the uses
In case you require additional security over your organization's information,
Access can be attached server databases. Besides additional security, server
database engines can perform the most complicated business rules and analysis
tasks on the server side and then return just the desired data to the Access
application. Additionally, Access can attach to multiple database engines at
the same time.
Developing an elegant, user-friendly database front-end that handles the most
challenging tasks can be time consuming and you likely have better things to do.
