Like in Excel 2010, you can also change the row and column height of Access 2010 database table. Unlike previous version, Access 2010 offers a simple way to set the width and height of table’s fields and rows. Let’s see how to customize row & fields.

Change Alternate Row Color

Unlike Excel 2010, which doesn’t offer a direct way to format alternate rows, Access 2010 provides an easy way to format alternate rows to better visibility. To change alternate row color, open the desired database table, and head over Home tab, under Text Formatting group, from Alternate Row Color drop-down list, select a desired one.
 

Get new ID from the table BEFORE insert the new row.

Get new ID from the table BEFORE insert the new row. Icon
I'm programming with VB .NET 2010 and using a Microsoft Access Database file which is bound to my project as a Dataset. Now I want to know: BEFORE inserting a new row into my dataset tablewhat will be the new ID number,

Surely you know the autonumber ID of a table is different with row count number, for there may be deleted rows between the table rows. Like the following example:

Row 0: ID=1
Row 1: ID=2
Row 2: ID=4 (ID number 3 is deleted)
Row 3: ID=5
Row 4: ID=9 (ID numbers 6,7,8 are deleted)

Now how do we know what ID number of Row 5 will be before inserting the new row? Perhaps ID numbers 10 and 11 are either deleted or not, so it may be 10, may be 11 or 12 or whatever! Isthere a way to know it BEFORE adding or inserting the new row into the table?

Is it possible to alter the height of a subform title bar in datasheet view?

access2010 will only print one row per page

access2010 will only print one row per page Icon
Our office here has various versions of Windows and Office, our XP Pro machines uses Office 03 or 07, while our Windows 7 machines uses Office 2010.

so anyhow, we have this database in mdb format(which was created with Access 03), and when try to print out a report (print preview) using Access 2010, it outputs only one row(one record) per page.

While the same attempt with the same database using access 03 & 07, I can get as many rows (records) as one page can fit before moving onto the next page.

is this a problem on the setting of Access 2010 or my data base was probably not the most compatible with Access 2010?

In Access 2010, you will a lot of Table Tools to let user change table fields settings. Since data type has to be specified for each field, it also allows user to change the data type on the fly without opening database in design mode.
 

Auto Adjusting Field Height

Auto Adjusting Field Height Icon
I have a report that is used to generate maintenance lists and to act as a checklist list for our fleet section. Each row on the report contains detail from six fields provided to the report from a query.

For most rows in the report the height property for the six fields are the same, based on the fact that the data value in the fields does not force the field to grow.

However in some cases the description field can have up to 200 characters and will force the field to be higher than the other five fields in the same row (refer to attached screen shot).

I was wondering if there is a way that I can tell the fields to grow to the same height as the tallest field.
