Microsoft Office/Access Apps
Linx Consulting, Inc. creates new, custom Microsoft Office and Microsoft Access
applications with elegant
graphical user interfaces (GUI) and work flows that allow you to work
more effectively, within a user-friendly environment. If you have an existing
Office application that you want modified, we can help
you with that, too. Microsoft Office and Access applications are
still a large part of what Linx Consulting, Inc. creates every day.
You are probably already aware of Microsoft Office (Office) because you
use Word, Excel, Outlook and other Office applications on a daily basis
but did you know that Office includes a relational database application
named Microsoft Access?
Microsoft Access (Access) is a relational database application with a full
featured development environment included. Access typically comes into play
when Excel and Word are no longer effective solutions for managing your company
and customer information. For example, you may have created so many Excel files
over the course of several years that you are finding it difficult to keep track
of which file contains the information you need or you may be entering the same
information into multiple Excel worksheets because Excel worksheets format your
data as flat files with no relationship between them.
As a relational database engine, Access is able to pick up where Excel and Word leave
off. You can store your information in records contained in tables that are well
defined and have relationships defined between one another. If you aren't sure what
that means, a relational database allows you to enter information once and retrieve
it in many different ways. With Access, you can enter information in easy-to-use
forms and report on that information in many different ways.
Access reporting is very robust and can handle almost all of your reporting requirement.
There are some cases where Access reporting will not be enough. You might want to
perform a mail merge or you may need to create an extremely wide report for analyzing
large amounts of data in one place. Not to worry. Access interfaces with the other
applications included in Office so that you can be very creative with reporting and
Would you like to secure your data? By pairing Access with a server database product,
such as Microsoft SQL Server or PostgreSQL your application can become a
power-house of information that is fast and secure and can be used by
multiple users both within your company's walls and remotely all around the world.
