Ms Access

  1. 1. MS Access
  2. 2. Introductio n  Microsoft Access, also known as Microsoft Office Access, is a database management system from Microsoft that combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software-development tools.  It is a member of the Microsoft Office suite of applications, included in the Professional and higher editions or sold separately.  Microsoft Access stores data in its own format based on the Access Jet Database Engine. It can also import or link directly to data stored in other applications and databases.  Software developers and data architects can use Microsoft Access to develop application software, and "power users" can use it to build software applications.  Like other Office applications, Access is supported by Visual Basic for Applications, an object-oriented programming language that can reference a
  3. 3. History Of MS Microsoft's first attempt to Access sell a relational database product was during the mid1980s. In the late 1980s Microsoft developed its own solution codenamed Omega. It was going to include "EB" Embedded Basic language, which was going to be the language for writing macros in all Microsoft applications, but the unification of macro languages did not VBA. Omega was also expected happen until the introduction of to provide a front end to the Microsoft SQL Server. Project Omega It was scheduled to be released in the 1st quarter of 1990, but in 1989 the development of the product was reset and it was rescheduled to be delivered no sooner than in January 1991. Parts of the project were later used for other Microsoft projects: Cirrus (codename for Access) and Thunder (codename for Visual Basic, where the Embedded Basic engine was used). After Access's premiere, the Omega project was demonstrated in 1992 to several journalists and
  4. 4. Project Cirrus After the Omega project was scrapped, some of its developers were assigned to the Cirrus project (most were assigned to the team which created Visual Basic). Its goal was to create a competitor for applications like Paradox or dBase that would work on Windows.] After Microsoft acquired FoxPro, there were rumors that the Microsoft project might get replaced with it, but the company decided to develop them in parallel. It was assumed that the project would make use of Extensible Storage Engine (Jet Blue) but, in the end, only support for Microsoft Jet Database Engine (Jet Red) was provided. The project used some of the code from both the Omega project and a pre-release version of Visual Basic. In July 1992, betas of Cirrus shipped to developer. and the name Access became the official name of the product.
  5. 5. Uses of MS Access In addition to using its own database storage file, Microsoft Access also may be used as the 'front-end' with other products as the 'backend' tables, such as Microsoft SQL Server and non-Microsoft products such as Oracle and Sybase. Multiple backend sources can be used by a Microsoft Access Jet Database (accdb and mdb formats). Similarly, some applications will only use the Microsoft Access tables and use another product as a front-end, such as Visual Basic or ASP.NET. Microsoft Access may be only part of the solution in more complex applications, where it may be integrated with other technologies such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook or ActiveX Data Objects.
  6. 6. MS Jet Database Engine Access tables support a variety of standard field types, indices, and referential integrity. Access also includes a query interface, forms to display and enter data, and reports for printing. The underlying Jet database, which contains these objects, is multiuser-aware and handles record-locking and referential integrity including cascading updates and deletes.
  7. 7. Easy To : Repetitive tasks can be automated through macros with point-and-click options. It is also easy to place a database on a network and have multiple users share and update data without overwriting each other's work. Data is locked at the record level which is significantly different from Excel which locks the entire spreadsheet.
  8. 8. Versions of MS Access Logos Office 95 & 97 Office 2000 Office 2003 Office 2007 Office 2010 Office 2013 Different versions of MS Access have been made. The first version was the office 95 & 97, second was office 2000, third was office 2002, fourth was office 2003, fifth was office 2007, sixth was office 2010 and seventh was office 2013. Office 2013 is latest one
  9. 9. Feature s • Users can create tables, queries, forms and reports, and connect them together with macros. • Advanced users can use VBA to write rich solutions with advanced data manipulation and user control. • Access also has report creation features that can work with any data source that Access can "access". • The original concept of Access was for end users to be able to "access" data from any source. • Other features include: the import and export of data to many formats including Excel, Outlook, ASCII, dBase, Paradox, FoxPro, SQL Server, Oracle, ODBC, etc. • It also has the ability to link to data in its existing location and use it for viewing, querying, editing, and reporting. This allows the existing data to change while ensuring that Access uses the latest data. • It can perform heterogeneous joins between data sets stored across different platforms.
  10. 10. Some new features in MS Access 2013 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 Latest Version 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
  11. 11. New features in MS Access 2010 5th last version The Office 2010 release of Access offers some improvements that make the application more usable. Here are some of the new features. • Share a Database on Web • Macros • New Database Templates • Reporting

  13. 13. New features in MS Access 2003 3rd Version Microsoft® Office Access 2003 is the database management program that gives you an improved user experience and an expanded ability to import, export, and work with XML data files. Working in Access 2003 is easier because common errors are identified and flagged for you with options to correct them. Additionally, a new feature to Access 2003 also helps database developers view information on dependencies between database objects.
  14. 14. New features in MS Access 2000 2nd Although Access 2000 continues to support client/server solutions that use linked tables, it also supports a new file format and data access architecture that makes it possible for you to create a client application that connects to a SQL Server 6.5 or SQL Server 7.0 database through OLE DB without loading the Jet database engine. To do this, you create an Access project file, which is saved Version An Access project can store forms, reports, data access pages, macros, and Visual Basic for Applications modules locally in your client solution file and use the OLE DB connection to display and work with the tables, views, relationships, and stored procedures that are stored on SQL Server. You create the forms, reports, macros, and Visual Basic
  15. 15. Some features in MS Access 95 & 97 First Microsoft Office for Windows 95, released on 24 August 1995, was the version of Microsoft Office designed specifically for Windows 95, succeeding Office 4.3. Previously, Microsoft had released Office 4.2 for Windows NT for several architectures, which included 32-bit Word 6.0 for Windows NT and Version Excel 5.0 for Windows NT, but PowerPoint 4.0 was 16-bit. With Office for Windows 95, all components in the suite were 32-bit. All the Office 95 applications have OLE 2 capacity— moving data automatically from various programs. Office 95 was replaced by Office 97.
