Access Database Design
Access database design
Microsoft Access database has been around more than 20 years. Access is a a good tool to help with design for much bigger database systems. This means you can prototype ideas to see if they work. Before you commit to an investment in a larger database system. At ChallengerX we use access all the time. It is the basis of all our database prototypes.
Access comes with an underrated reporting engine. Reporting is not directly related to access database design. There are many expensive reporting tools available. Crystal reports is s superior tool. Unfortunately it comes at a cost. When it comes to reporting Access is worth considering. It is able to do many of the things that Crystal reports can. Where it can’t the access VBA system is able to step in. It can be used to create custom functions. VBA can also perform repetitive tasks and formatting jobs.
Database design prototype
Access contains the following: tables, queries, forms and reports. Prototyping using access database design helps to determine what is going to work. This is an important tool to show users how things will look. The database is usually small enough to be sent to users. The users can then test on their computer. Database programmers can move from test to production quickly.
At ChallengerX we can take your designs and convert them to any system. We can also assist with the access database design prototypes as well.
