Introduction to Objects In Microsoft Access 2016

Introduction

Databases in Access are composed of four objects: tables, queries, forms, and reports. Together, these objects allow you to enter, store, analyze, and compile data however you want.

Tables

By this point, you should as of now comprehend that a database is a gathering of information sorted out into numerous associated records. In Access, all information is put away in tables, which puts tables at the core of any database.

You may definitely realize that tables are sorted out into vertical sections and level lines.

Rows and columns in an Access table

In Access, lines and sections are alluded to as records and fields. A field is something beyond a segment; it’s a method for arranging data by the sort of information it is. Each snippet of data inside a field is of a similar sort. For instance, each section in a field called First Name would be a name, and each passage in field called Street Address would be an address.

Fields and field names

Similarly, a record is something beyond a column; it’s a unit of data. Each cell in a given column is a piece of that line’s record.

A record

Notice how each record traverses a few fields. Despite the fact that the data in each record is sorted out into fields, it has a place with the other data in that record. See the number at the left of each column? It’s the ID number that recognizes each record. The ID number for a record alludes to each snippet of data contained on that line.

Record ID numbers

Tables are useful for putting away firmly related data. Suppose you possess a pastry kitchen and have a database that incorporates a table with your clients’ names and data, similar to their telephone numbers, places of residence, and email addresses. Since these snippets of data are for the most part subtle elements on your clients, you’d incorporate them all in a similar table. Every client would be spoken to by a one of a kind record, and each sort of data about these clients would be put away in its own field. On the off chance that you chose to include any more data—say, a client’s birthday—you would essentially make another field inside a similar table.
