Database - MS Access Backend vs MS SQL

Question: Database - MS Access Backend vs MS SQL

hi all,
i would like to ask for database performance :

currently i split my ms access database to front end (form interface) and backend. the backend file i put on shared folder on dedicated pc, which i assume as server. the database then access by 10 staff, which having the frontend file on each pc. the backend file was ~20MB in size.

there's an option, which is upsizing the backend to be sql. then install ms sql server express 2008 r2 on "server" pc, then host the backend file and modified the frontend file so, it'll access the backend database on sql connection.

is this will increase any performance from current setting?

thank you.

Preferred Solution: Database - MS Access Backend vs MS SQL

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Database - MS Access Backend vs MS SQL

Hi there
probably not the answer you are looking for but if you use MySQL (FREE for non commercial users) you will improve your DB performance compared with MS ACCESS by literally ZILLIONS of percent.

It's slightly more complex to get up and running but there are tutorials all over the web.

Beats running a "cut down version" of ms sql too.

Incidentally MySQL in combination with Apache, and PHP makes a great WEB server too (WAMP). Also compatable with Linux where the same combination is called LAMP.

I working on my graduation project and I have to create a Visual Basic interface that will connect to a SQL database and/or an Access database. I know how to create the interface but I have no idea how to make it connect to a database! What kind of code do I need? Do I need middleware?

I have looked at the Microsoft resource web sites but I couldn't find anything in this subject!

I have a database which is connecting to a SQL server backend. At the moment it is generating reports very slowly e.g. 5-10mins. The tables on the SQL server seem to have already been indexed which I thought may be a solution. Is there anything else that I can try. Also I want to monitor the amount of data being transferred between the Access frontend and the SQL server, can anyone suggest any way to do this.

Thanks in advance

OK. My head feels like it's about to explode trying to figure this out.

I have a SQL Server backend that I've linked to via Access 2003.
One table has the details of the report, the other has some expanded info. No biggie on connecting the two. The DB is handled by an enterprise application and therefore the database design is untouchable.

The delima is that the detail table has 6 seperate fields that hold assigned staff members. The expanded table holds their job position. I want to display on my report the assigned staff members in a column appropriate for their position, but there's no rhyme or reason to entering the staff. This is because the app allows entering staff in any order and then parses the field into 6 seperate fields on the record add or update.

Something tells me I'm going to have to use VBA to get this right, but wouldn't that severly degrate the efficiency of the report since I'll have to run the procedure on each record before it's added to the report?

I wrote a LARGE Access program. Split it into an Access front-end and an Access back-end. Works great. I am now thinking about moving this program forward a little bit more. I would love to have a SQL back-end instead of the current Access back-end. Is there someway to migrate this a little at a time? In other words, have the front-end use both an Access back-end and a SQL back-end as I migrate the front-end programming over to VB or whatever?
 

Answer:Access Frontend SQL backend

Although I have not done much work with SQL that would be the best way to do this, you will need to "import & convert" the Access tables in to SQL, preferably 1 table at a time.
You will need to think about the order that you do this due to dependency and relationships between the various tables.
SQL tables do not have identical field characteristics as Access, so you will ned to learn about those.
You will then need to re-write any queries that you currently use with the Access tables to work with the SQL ones vie ODBC or DDE.
This post has some data on conversion.

I am about to start a new major project using Visual Basic (or MFC, I havnt decided yet) where I am going to be using an access mdb as the datasource for my application. Currently the database is located (or going to be located) on our Company Server which is a P3 Xeon 800 with 256 Ram, SCSI HardDrives, 100Mb lan connection, using Novell 5.1 as the OS. I was wondering if hosting a backend mdb file on a Novell OS posesses any performance issues or problems? Or maybe there is some server side plugins that should be installed to possibly speed things up? If anyone can suggest anything I would be greatful.

Thanks,

So, googled this questions a lot (All hail google) and there are plenty of answers on how to do it with more ‘professional’ setups ( Oracle / SQL / PHP ) but that’s not what I’ve got to work with. So the question: Does anyone know how to run an Access database on a web site using a HTML front end?
What I’d like to achieve is to have the tables on the server and the forms as web pages that can be navigated to via hyperlink and preferable the web pages to be identical to the forms in design and function.

Dear all
i am trying to separate the front and back end of my access database . so that the tables are placed at one separate location and the .mde files can be distributed to users .
BUT the problem is that,

1) i dont know how to build this server/client stuff.
2) how can i make my .mde file (which at the moment is accessing data from its own tables) fetch data from another computer on the network.
for instance lets take the northwind database , it takes data from its own tables. what are the modifications which i can apply to it.
 

Answer:access front and backend separation, server client development

That's an easy one

(although this isn't strictly speaking client/server design, but its what you're asking for, and something I've done before)

1) Create a network location that everyone who needs to access the database can access in the same way (i.e. the same drive letter)
2) Create a copy of your database in that location
3) Delete all queries, forms, macros, reports etc from the "back-end" database copy
4) Delete all the tables from your "front-end" database copy
5) Create table links in your "front-end" database to the "back-end" (In Access 2007, this is "External data" \ "Access" \ "Link to the datasource"... in Access 2003 its on the file menu I think "File \ get external data \ link tables"

That'll get you the "front-end" \ "back-end" split, then to create an MDE file you just need to go to "Database tools \ Make MDE" and save this and send it to your users.

I have a database I've created for our Geology folks to edit the list of publications they have. Short background: this data was originally located in an Access 95 database, an excel spreadsheet, and an old paradox text file. It wasn't normalized, nor was it clean, nor was anything entered with anything like a standard format. I was tasked with merging the three sets of data into one, and presenting the users with a new database they could use to edit (and clean up) the existing data, and add new records to it.

I smooshed the data together and had originally created an Access front end on an Access back end in Access 2003 (I usually use 2003, though my users are on 2007). This was working fine but I didn't have them doing much editing as we were waiting for scanned images to come back from a contractor. When we got the images back they wanted to start editing in earnest, and I needed to move the data to our SQL server for the backend. I linked to all the tables, and created queries in Access that pulled from the linked tables, and the queries populated the forms.

Editing works fine on existing records, but when the I try to enter a new record, the initial entry goes fine, but once I've saved it, then try to edit it again, it says "this record has been changed by another user since you started editing it..." and only allows you to drop the changes or copy to clipboard. The thing is, that's not what is really happening.

Seems simple, open the master menu, click on a button that then opens the called db and the associated form. Do my business exit the db and am back at the master form.

According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes?

So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have been through to many Access upgrades?

Question: MS Access database

I am developing an Access database, one of the uses for which will be mail merging letters and mailing labels. The database records all contain an Area field, which contains an area code in the range 1-10. I've created a query which allows the viewing of records for specific areas (i.e. it filters the data so I can see just area 1, just area 2, etc). Instead of having a separate query for each area I put [Area?] in the Criteria for Area on the query design so that a box appears when I run the query into which I can enter the area code I want, click OK, and then that area is displayed. This all works fine.However, when I come to try mail merging, the query is not visible in the list of ones I can select in Word! If I make a query without the [Area?] variable in then it works OK (i.e. if I specify "1" as the area criteria).Can anyone advise what I'm doing wrong?

Answer:MS Access database

Searching around on the internet, I found a solution to this.Within Word, you have to go into Tools > Options > General Tab and select confirm conversion at Open. This, for some reason, displays a different menu when you select the database as the source for the mailmerge, from which you can select a DDE connection which then gives you the full list of tables and queries from Access.

you can link by selecting the table tab in the DB window and then click NEW followed by selecting Link. Then search for your other database and select the table you want to link to.

You will now have access to all the fields, it is the same as a table now except you may have sharing issues if the table is opened on the source DB.

You can use this linked table just as a regular table to make reports forms, queries etc. so you may not need the table you created with the same information as it is redundant.

So you can make a form with your linked table with a combo to select the product.

Question: Access Database

Hi all,

I have an issue with an access database. When I print out a report one of my columns only prints out 4 out of the 5 digits. This happens with 2 machines. On other pcs the 5 digits appear in output of the report. I have checked the resolutions of the pcs and they are the same. I have expanded the column widths in design view and still the problem persists. I cannot figure out why only 4 digits appear out of the 5.

Can anybody help?

thanks

Answer:Access Database

Don't you have any Back-ups?
Try opening a "new Blank" database and on the Main Menu, File>Get External Data>Import and then point it the corrupted file just to see if it can be opened that way.
If it can then on each set of Controls (tables, queries, forms etc) click selct all and then OK

the really cool part about this database is probably the different things you can do.

Question: Access DataBase

I have an access database, one of the forms I am working with has a subform. I want to be able to print part of the main form, and parts of the suboform. I can do this by inserting the form key number and the subform key number, then it prints what I want. What I am looking for is to be able to be in a clients record and push print and without having to enter anything it prints the fields in the form and the subform that I have in a report. I hope this makes sense. Is there a macro that I can put together to do this?

Thank you in advance for any help. .

Answer:Access DataBase

The simplest way although it may not seem like it, is to do the following:
Create a Join Query that includes both tables/queries (whatever your using), and create Joins on the 2 Key fields (related), this query should then become the control source for you report.
Now in the new query go to the field that contains the data you will be selecting on the form. eg the ID for the Main form

In the criteria row right click and select Build, find your form and find the Id field control name. The syntax will be:

[Forms]![FormName]![ControlName]
Now if you don't already have one, place a button on your form that opens the Report or query, it should only display the records for the selected records.

This called "Filter by Form"
Any problems let me know I or some one else can walk you through, it works I use it all the time.

The first thing to try after taking a backup copy of the Database is a "Repair & Compact" of the current one. You should open Accees, not the database and then choose Tools>Database Utilities>Repair & Compact. Choose the current database to repair and Compact and save it under a new name. Open the newly named, repaired database and see if it still has the same problem.

Hello, I am using Access 2000 and have created a database with a command button that opens up a report via a macro. I would like to know how to open up single reports instead of pushing a button that brings up every report, I've been able to open up reports that are based off of queries, queries that have paramenters that need to be inputted in order to bring up single unique records, but I would like to be able to just create a button that brings just that particular unique record-report off of that particular unique record on that form. Meaning that for a record that had just been inputted for John Doe on a form, I would like to know how to create a button on that form to pull up John Doe's single report without having to build a query that asks for a parameter. Is there anyway to do this?
 

Answer:Access-Printing a single report off of a single record from an Access database form

You will have to adapt this to your own form setup; but it's just using the Where line of the OpenReport macro action.

If on the form MyFormName you have two controls called txtFirstNm and txtLastNm, and in the query underlying the report you have two fields called FirstNm and LastNm, you would put into the Where line of the OpenReport action:

Code:
[FirstNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtFirstNm] And [LastNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtLastNm]
Hope that helps.

i'm very much a beginner at java. i'm currently working on a database application and i'm using access to create my database. my instructions say that i'm to create a database w/ four tables and then lists the fields for each table. but i'm having a little trouble w/ the access part of this.

my problem is that my instructions for the fields will look something like this:

create table names (
personID int DEFAULT AUTOINCREMENT,
firstName varchar (30) NOT NULL,
lastName varchar (30) NOT NULL
)
i can create the table and, of course, i can create the fields, but i'm not sure where i need to implement "int DEFAULT AUTOINCREMENT" and "varchar (30) NOT NULL." will that be done in my java code or do i need to do that somehow in access? i'm not asking anyone to do my homework for me, i'm just having trouble w/ access. i've emailed my teacher w/ this same question, but i have a feeling that i'll get faster replies here. any help will be appreciated. thanks.
 

Answer:access database java help

Sorry, I do not know Java at all, but I do know Access. Those look like instructions to Access.
The first "int DEFAULT AUTOINCREMENT" means Use an Integer value and it is Autoincremented by the table.
The other 2 mean Text of 30 characters (maximum presumably" but must not be Null ie nothing, so an entry must be made.
Why not try implementing it and then make some entries and see if that is what happens.

- When response needed is not checked, current stage should be completed.
- When response needed is checked, current stage should be in acknowledgement.

Unless security has been applied to the database you should get the option to Upgrade it when you try to open it in Access 2000.If you get this option to upgrade, follow the prompts and save the new file as a different database name to prevent overwriting the original.If you get a specific error message it is probably down to having security applied to the database or that it has been compiled as part of a distributed program which will present real problems.Copy any error messages you get and post them in here.T

I have so far, successfully managed to make everything work, until now. My database is for a newsagents but they are unaware of this creation.

I have created a form entitled Customer Sales Receipt which is based upon all entities from two tables named Customer Sales Receipt and Sales Details. I also have a similar form entitled Purchase Orders which is based upon all entities from two tables named Purchase Orders and Order Details.

I seem to be having trouble with the SaleID in this two forms. It is meant to be an Autonumber but when i try to add a new record to either form the autonumber does not show up. I then get a pop-up telling me that

'The field 'SalesDetails.SaleID' cannot contain a Null value because the require property for this field is set to True. Enter a value in this field'

This comes up after I have selected the ProductID in the subform of the customer sales receipt. Upon attempting to close the form I get a message saying 'You cannot add or change a record because a related record is required in table 'Customer Sales Receipt'.

I tried using the Access Help files but they are pretty much useless to m... Read more

In Access I have a table of Company names which business advisors have worked with. This is a linked table to an Excel spreadsheet which in turn is an output of an external data source. I have another table in Access where I log all companies where I have received an eligibility form. What I need is a query which would list all companies where I have not received an eligibility form. An inner join between the 2 company name fields would return the opposite ie. a list of companies that are eligible ie. where a form has been received.Similarly, I also have a linked table containing all invoices outstanding for a particular project, and another table where I log the invoice numbers of payments made under that project. I need a query that would return all unpaid invoices.

Answer:Access database Inner Joins

You can use the unmatched query wizard. This works only if you have designed your tables correctly. The 2 tables should be linked by an id field. Where you have received a form, you will have an entry in the eligibility form table. So if you run the unmatched query wizard what you will have is a left outer join and the filter criteria in the elibility form table primary key is set to "Is Null" But the wizard does it all and you don't need to worry about what kind of join it is.I am a bit worried. The overriding principle of a relational database is that no piece of information is ever stored twice. In other words you shouldn't be linking tables via comapany names. They should be joined via a primary key. You will have problems linking tables via names. The slightest typo makes them different.Check out the Northwind database and the examples there.

Answer:Access Database Impossible - Help?

Furthermore, if I wanted to remove a customer than I would need to delete his record.However, if I do this I will have no back up data of him. I assume I cant keep a record of customers becuase if I want to clear the room than he will dissappear from the database completely????

I work for a company who has 4 offices in the midwest. They all need to connect to the same database in which they all will edit. I thought webdav will work but since Im using MS Access (I read it will corrupt it). How can I do this?

Answer:How can you access a database remotely?

provided certain requirements are fulfilled:Each machine that needs to access the database must have MS Access installed as a standalone, or there must be a network installation.You must set up a shared folder on the computer that will host the database, and put the Access database inside it.Make sure that the database is configured to open in shared mode:1. On the Tools menu, click Options. 2. On the Advanced tab, under Default open mode, click Shared.The danger, when more than one person has access to the database, is that more than one person might be working with the same records at the same time. Someone else could edit whilst you're working in the database, or even delete your data, so you'll need to watch for the warnings that Access will provide if, and when this happens. You'll get a small black arrowhead alongside a record that is current, and hasn't been edited. If there's an icon that looks like a yellow sheet of paper with a pen it means that data changes haven't been saved - your colleagues will not see the changes, and they won't be able to edit the data until you save your changes. A small circle with a line across it means that the record is locked, and you'll hear a beep if you try to edit.

In my database program the user has the option to delete clients from a list or add new ones. This works fine unless all clients are deleted and the database becomes empty. Once this happens, the user is still able to add new clients to the empty database. However, back in the forms area, it will not allow new data to be entered in the fields for the new clients.

I have a huge MS Access 2000 database (about 33meg in size). How do I split that up into 10meg "chunks?" Or is that even possible?
 

Answer:Splitting an MS Access Database

33M is not that big for an Access database, but they are generally stored on a server. I assume you have this one at home and suspect that your tables are not properly normalized. Why don't you export one of them, preferably your biggest one and email it to me (zipped probably) and I'll check it out for you.

Otherwise, you could create a new blank database and export a table or two to it, then link the table to your existing database. However, linked tables can only be changed in its own database.
