Time-saving tips when MS Access database

time.PNG

Timing is very important in everything we do in life, in this post you will find out tricks to easily optimize your speed when working with MS Access, this tips will also help you manage the time while creating access database.

  • Each table should have primary keys: when creating access database in MS access make sure, each and every table in your access database should have primary keys. This allows the system to quickly locate and connect records with other tables, which are normally known as a secondary index on a connecting table’s field along-side the primary key field.
  • Eliminating Subdatasheet’s: when working with MS access database, it creates unnecessary Subdatasheet’s between the related tables, this has a huge performance hit if the tables are open, it’s advisable you set this property none when working with MS access in other to save more time and optimize your speed.
  • Don’t apply the index to the field with identical data: if you have a number fields in your MS access database that contains two to three values, applying index would may not be helpful, Instead to check the number of entries in an index use the access distinct count property in MS access.
  • Use shortcuts often: This is important when working with MS access or when working with other Microsoft Office application, you should be able to work with shortcuts in order save a lot of time.
  • Keep fields (columns) to a minimum in a table: It’s a misconception to think the number of records in a table can slow down your MS Access database when in fact it’s the number of fields that is more memory sensitive due to the allocation of memory for each field (or column).
  • Close unused forms:Make sure to close every unused form when working with an access database because forms tend to consume more memory and if it’s not in use it should be closed in other to free up memory, releasing memory for some other part of MS access application to use.
  • Use light weighted forms: light weighted form should replace the visual basic code (VBA) in forms. Instead, consider setting the form’s Has Module property to false, and by doing so it turns a form into a lightweight form.
  • Create a data entry form: if the nature of access database requires you to constantly add new records to a linked table. Then you need to consider setting the form data entry property to yes, this will prevent MS access from retrieving all existing records in a linked table when only needing to add new records.
  • Reduce your server traffics: traffics tend to slow down speed and reduce performance so to optimize your speed you need to reduce the amount of traffic returning to the server.
  • Use Dynasts for the large record: when working with MS access and you need to retrieve a large set of data, make sure you use a dynast instead of using snapshot.

MS access is a great database tool and has great built-in functions to help you create a database, explore more.

access database 

A Microsoft Access Database is a collection of information that has been organised so that the information is easy to access and display in different ways.

ake a look at this great video tutorial as an introduction to what Microsoft Access is all about.

Databases are used everywhere: at work, in the home, in schools, and leisure facilities. Examples of a database would be a telephone directory, a mailing catalogue, or even a CD music library – you get the idea!

Within Microsoft Access, a database simply refers to a collection of different data sets known as Tables which are potentially related and therefore joined together increasing data flexibility.

The process of relating and joining tables together is what makes Access a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) and on the whole provides more flexible reporting and functionality within this application.

“How to Build Access Database Forms” eBook

Instantly Download My New, Easy-to-Read £14.97 eBook Guide and Discover My Secrets about Building Well Designed Microsoft Access Database Forms

From The Desktop Of: Ben Beitler (London, UK) – “Your Access Database Expert”

Dear Friend,

Interacting with your Access database is one of the main functions that is taken for granted by the end-user – if only they knew how time consuming (but satisfying) each Access Form took to plan, build, test and implement.

Designing Access Forms is critical for end-users who will be responsible for the day-to-day running of a database and have very little knowledge of the structure of an Access database or its background processes. In order for an Access database to run as smooth as possible, you need to have good design skills and a little bit of patience.

Well, good news! I have created an eBook that takes you through all the essentials from the very beginning to the more sophisticated screens that land up not even resembling an Access database screen!

Fortunately  you and my students, this eBook is the guide to own…

Building Microsoft Access Forms has a lot of different components, controls and properties that when combined together change the look, feel and functionality and it took a lot of learning (all those years ago) to master and is condensed in this eBook for you.

“How My £14.97 Guide Helps You … Permanently”

I have put together a comprehensive eBook guide of about 60 pages introducing you to the principles, techniques and the do’s and don’ts when building Microsoft Access Forms which caters to all levels of users as it explains the disciplines and conventions that even the more accomplished user may not be aware.

Access Database - Forms Design and Runtime Views

Here’s a sample of what’s inside the guide:

  • Understanding different types of Forms and their uses
  • The techniques in building an Access Form for all levels
  • Mastering the correct conventions used avoiding the common errors
  • A step by step guide for new users (using templates and wizards)
  • Mastering the all important combined properties to release the power of a Form
  • Creating Dialog (modal) screens and Menu Navigation interfaces
  • Using Macros and some easy VBA code
  • Download free sample data to test and follow my examples

HOW TO BUILD AN ACCESS DATABASE

“How to Build an Access Database” eBook

Instantly Download My New, Easy-to-Read £14.97 eBook Guide and Discover My Secrets about Building a Well Designed Microsoft Access Database

From The Desktop Of: Ben Beitler (London, UK) – “Your Access Database Expert”

Dear Friend,

Have you ever wondered where you needed to start when designing and implementing a Microsoft Access database system only to discover that you accidently missed out some of the core features in the first place which turns out to be critical to your business?

Believe me, I can relate. I was the same way for many years. Frankly, I made so many mistakes I’m almost embarrassed to admit it to you. If only someone had provided some useful tools and a good user guide then maybe, no definitely saved myself a lot of grief indeed in the first place.

I know from a personal (and sometimes painful) experience of the long nights spent drinking plenty of black coffee sitting in a small dingy smoked filled room with a good friend of mine learning how to build, implement and work with this application wishing we had decent help files, books and even a useful website resource; the number of mistakes and frustrations working with then version 1.1 were made and the heartache of realising some of the methods implemented could have been altogether avoided if only someone had provided me with help and the human element of designing and using an Access database system.

Fortunately for me (and now you), I found a way out…

Since those early failures, I poured my heart and soul into learning everything I could about Microsoft Access. I ate, slept, and drank this world, and as a result of being immersed in it for over 17 years now, I’m now considered an expert in this field, so I’m well qualified to help you.

Microsoft Access screens

I have developed & delivered training and high end Access database courses to thousands of users and to many corporates including HSBC, ABN Amro, Deloitte, Sage and Toyota and I’m a former fellow member of the The Institute of IT Training which is the world’s first professional body for IT training professionals which sets standards and code practices within the industry.

“How My £14.97 Guide Helps You … Permanently”

Over the last few years, my friends and acquaintances constantly hassled, encouraged, and cajoled me to write a definitive guide about Microsoft Access, so I finally gave in and I’m now ready to share it with you.

Inside, you’ll discover the very best, most up to date tips and strategies about How to build an Access Database. It has 49 pages of no fluff or filler, it’s packed with practical information you can use instantly.

Here’s a sample of what’s inside the guide:

  • The Best Ways to Design and Build an Access Database
  • My Insider Techniques and Design Methodologies Clearly Explained
  • How to avoid the ‘Pear Shaped Database’ trap
  • Instantly improve your confidence and approach to building an Access Database
  • Ways to overcome the parts of an Access Database
  • The giant myth about ‘Database Normalisation’ and how to handle this process

“Why This Guide Works When Building an Access Database Like You and Me”

If you’ve read this far, you’re probably asking yourself if my Guide will work for you, right?  Here’s the thing: I’ve used these techniques and principles in my training rooms around the country when teaching the exact information in this guide and seen what my students have built and implemented as a results of my teachings. This is no theory based paper from some theoretical guru who professes to be an expert – I practice what I preach!

But if for any reason you’re not completely satisfied with the results, let me know and I’ll give you your money back 🙂

Your investment to get this guide is just [price] which is a snip for what my clients normally pay.  So what’s the catch, right?  Well, none really! It’s just some small contribution towards recognising my expertise after some of my close friends have said you should be charging for this information and not giving it away for free!

Dear Friend,

Have you ever been in a situation where your manager or supervisor has asked you produce a report for that all important meeting or presentation that involved you having to first build a query (instruction) to collect accurate information from a database before despatching the information in a presentable format.

Having been in similar situations where the onus as a database administrator required me to produce ‘ad-hoc‘ reports usually last minute therefore having very little time to plan and build reports, I soon realised there must be an easier to manage this process and be prepared for the next time it happened.
