How to Import Data into Microsoft Access

Working with data in Microsoft Access databases can be preferable to working with spreadsheets for a number of reasons. One database file can hold several tables, which makes consolidating and organizing data easier. Databases are also great for calculating summaries and aggregating data more efficiently than a spreadsheet. Access is a relational database, which means that you can bring related data stored in different tables together to summarize and calculate data; a feat that a spreadsheet like Excel cannot perform. Databases are a necessity when working with large datasets, as spreadsheets have a limit of 65,000 records. Finally, Microsoft Access databases are compatible with ArcGIS, as tables within Access databases can be directly accessed by ArcGIS and added to ArcMap. Tables can then be joined to boundary files based on a common field, and the data within the tables can be mapped. This is highly preferable to working with table in the dbf file format, which has very particular syntax rules that makes them difficult to work with. Access databases can also serve as geodatabases for holding boundary files and data tables (for instructions on importing shapefiles into Access, see the Import Shapefiles to Access tutorial). NOTE – if you plan to eventually use a database as a geodatabase, for holding geospatial data and tabular data, and you are using ArcGIS 9.2, you MUST create the database within Arc Catalog by right-clicking in the table of contents, clicking new, and new personal geodatabase. You cannot import geospatial data into an Access database that was not created with ArcGIS 9.2. If you plan on using the database for just holding and working with tabular data, or you are using an earlier version of ArcGIS (8.3 to 9.1), you can safely create a database within Access, Windows Explorer, or ArcGIS, and it will work as a geodatabase.

Access can import data in various formats, including Dbase (another widely-used database) and HTML (from web pages). Microsoft Excel spreadsheet files can be imported directly. Here, the data has been saved as tab separated values, which is a standard format which any spreadsheet (or indeed word processor) should be able to produce. Other basic formats include comma separated values and just plain text. One thing to note when importing a file is that the first line may contain headings - Access has an option to cope with this and can use them for field names.

Relational Databases and Microsoft Access

Relational Databases and Microsoft Access

MS Access automatically creates an index (unique – no duplicates) on a field that is the primary key. A unique index is a special internal data structure that Access builds to facilitate two things: (1) to ensure fast access to rows of data when the user specifies a value for such a field in a query, and (2) to ensure in the case of no duplicates that no two rows of the indexed table could have the same value for that field. The index data structure is very similar to the index you see at the back of books. An index comprises several entries where each entry has a value (a term used in the book) and a reference (a page number in a book) – in the case of duplicates allowed there can be several references (several pages where the term appears).

Note that because we had the Order and Order_line tables included in the query we were asking for data which existed in all tables. Since no Crystal Ballpens or Matt Photo Paper have been ordered they do not exist in those tables and are therefore not included in the query.

Queries are used on their own to create lists that can be rerun and reprinted as necessary, and also to provide data for reports. Queries are useful in that they take data from tables and filter and sort it for viewing. Queries can also be run on each other to produce very complicated views of data. Some queries perform actions, the database will usually ask if this is what you want to do. For example, any queries with this symbol are make-table queries. This means that when you run them, they will create a table with the data you’ve selected. If this table name already exists, Access will delete it first and replace it with the new query.

Microsoft Press Microsoft Access 2013 Inside Out pdf

As you work with a document or a spreadsheet, you generally have complete freedom to define the contents of the document or each cell in the spreadsheet. Within a given page in a document, you might include paragraphs of text, a table, a chart, or multiple columns of data displayed with multiple fonts. Within a given column on a spreadsheet, you might 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. You need this flexibility because your word processing document must be able to con- vey your message within the context of a printed page, and your spreadsheet must store the data you’re analyzing as well as provide for calculation and presentation of the results. This flexibility is great for solving relatively small, well-defined business problems. But a document becomes unwieldy when it extends beyond a few dozen pages, and a spread- sheet becomes difficult to manage as the amount of data grows. If you design a document or spreadsheet to be used by others, it’s difficult to control how they will use the data or enter new data. For example, on a spreadsheet, even though one cell might need a date and another a currency value to make sense, a user might easily enter character data in error.

Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Server: What's Right in Your Organization?

Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Server: What's Right in Your Organization?

Web users are trained to accept behavior that would not be acceptable in Windows- based applications. Consider the example of changing a quantity and clicking Update to refresh total sales. Access easily (and inexpensively) supports this and other features, such as copying and pasting records, displaying multiple one-to-many relationships, and basic features, such as doing spelling checks. This provides a friendlier and richer data entry experience than Web solutions.

Fujitsu Legacy Modernization Conversion of Microsoft Access to Microsoft SQL Server

Fujitsu Legacy Modernization Conversion of Microsoft Access to Microsoft SQL Server

Microsoft Access is a fantastic tool for solving immediate business needs or where the business needs did not justify professional development by the IT Department; therefore most Microsoft Access databases are created by beginners or power users who do not have the experience or knowledge to create professional applications. These applications are built over time, and new features and data models are added as needed with little thought for performance or scalability. The result is that many solutions don’t reliably support more than a few concurrent users and place a great burden on network infrastructures. The evolution of these databases into important business applications justifies additional investment to migrate them to Microsoft SQL Server.

Strategic Initiatives: Evolving Microsoft Access Applications to Microsoft SQL Server

not be upsized—the cost and disruption to business is simply not a cost-effective use of your resources. These databases work fine on a day to day basis and do not need attributes such as scalability, security, and 100% reliability. Of all the Access databases in your organization, only a few are candidates for upsizing. Additionally, from the list of candidates for upsizing, a majority can be upsized using a cost-effective process where only the data is moved to SQL Server. All of the application’s functionality in terms of forms and reports is kept in Access. And only the smallest percentage of upsizing projects involve rewriting the Access application in a new environment such as .NET.

 Use the next step to define what is to be done with the value (option) retrieved from the current record. You can choose to store it temporarily for possible use at a later time (such as in a calculation) or store the value immediately in a field. Since this is a report, storing the value in a field is not really a viable option, but you will need to select this item in order for the option group to know where to read the data from.

Migrating and Converting Microsoft Access to SQL Server

Migrating and Converting Microsoft Access to SQL Server

The results of an upsizing project using any of these methods could be a fully functioning Access database with a SQL Server back end data container, but this likelihood decreases as software complexity increases. What this means is that the more there are of Access Queries, Forms, Reports, Macros, and VBA Modules, the less likelihood there is of a fully functional application after upsizing. Only databases of relatively simple complexity are candidates for the free upsizing tools from Microsoft.

Maintaining Database Integrity Using Data Macros In Microsoft Access

Maintaining Database Integrity Using Data Macros In Microsoft Access

The [IsInsert] property would be true if the Before Change event is triggered by an attempt to insert a row into the table. The Updated("Field Name") function returns true if the data field has changed. The Look Up A Record is used to find a record that would violate the integrity constraint (i.e., Rule 13) if the newly inserted or updated row is committed to the table. In this case, the table EMP with alias E is used to locate an employee record in department D10 hired on the same date as the newly inserted or updated record but having a different review date. If at least one such record is found, the next statement will be executed; otherwise, the LookupRecord data block is completed. Therefore, the RaiseError data action will only be executed if a match is found indicating a violation of Rule 13 and the data macro is stopped allowing the user to take corrective action or to undo the insert/update.

Not every database has to be refined to the point that it can be classified as an application. Databases that only you or a few experienced database users will work with can remain fairly simple. But if you expect someone without database knowledge to enter data or generate their own reports, spending a little extra time in the beginning to create a solid foundation will save a lot of work later. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself continually repairing damaged files or walking people through seemingly easy tasks.
