Access 2010 Modifying Tables
Views: 68
After working with your database, you might find that you need to make some changes to the tables that store your data. Access makes it easy to modify your tables to suit your database's needs.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to create and rearrange table fields. You'll also learn how to ensure that your table data is correctly and consistently formatted by setting validation rules, character limits, and data types in your fields. Finally, we will direct you to additional options for doing simple math functions within your tables.

How to Add fields, tables and forms Icon
The Microsoft Office Access 2007 relational database manager enables information workers to quickly track and report information with ease thanks to its interactive design capabilities that do not require deep database knowledge. In this Microsoft Access video tutorial, you'll learn how to add and modifying fields to a pre-existing table, and applying these changes to an associated form. To get started adding and modifying fields, tables and forms in Access, take a look!

Is there a way in Access 2010 to have users log on to the database? I also need their log on name to display and store when they are adding or modifying records on a form

Linking Access 97 tables in Access 2010

Linking Access 97 tables in Access 2010 Icon
was hoping somebody could help me.

I hope this has not been answered somewhere before but I could not find it.

Our office is stuck using access 97. For obvious reasons I would like to follow the rest of the world into this century and move to 2010.

Problem is that over the years many people have created many MDBs and not of them them knew what they were doing! It is all a bit messy.

If we start converting databases we will inevitably end up with 2010 front ends linked to 97 tables. I know it is possible to do this and I have done some testing and everything looks okay but does anybody know if this will cause any unexpected side effects? Anything like supported data types across the different versions or anything like that

Question on removing permissions from tables after 97-->2010 conversion

Question on removing permissions from tables after 97-->2010 conversion Icon
Our organization has several 97 access databases scattered throughout and are getting updated to 2010. The update has gone fairly well, however, as we go through these individual databases, the users ask that we provide them with changes that have not been implemented since the DBs were new.

The business does not have a full time DBA, and has contracted work like that in the past, but I would prefer not to call on such a person for what appears to be simple changes (adding records to tables, etc.).

and I foolishlymentioned that I have some experience with Access, so I have been tasked with all Access problems.

Herein lies the problem: Currently I am working on converting a table and find that the DBA who built these DBs not only hid the nav pane, but apparently has locked the tables for editing as well.

I can get the tables to show with F11 fine, but I need to get around those permissions set on the tables. I am unsure exactly how to go about it with 2010 not having permissions (from what I understand).

Access 2010 Working with Tables

Access 2010 Working with Tables Icon
While there are four types of database objects in Access 2010, tables are arguably the most important. Even when you're using forms, queries, and reports, you're still working with tables, since that's where all your data is stored. Tables are at the heart of any database, so it's important to understand how to use them.
In this lesson, you will learn how to open tables, create and edit records, and modify the appearance of your table to make it easier to view and work with.

Date() anomaly

Date() anomaly Icon
I have a very strange problem that has completely confused me.

Having used MANY tables dating back to 2003, etc in Access 2007 with NO problems with the 'Date()' function I am experiencing multiple failures in Access 2010.

When I first opened these Tables in 2010 the error message 'Unknown function 'Date' in validation expression or default value on tblXXXX' was shown and the Default Value of today's date did not work.

I have now had to disable the Deafult Value of Date() in these tables.

Interestingly, NOT all of my tables are affected but the majority alas are.

There were NO changes made to the tables, the original WORKING databases were simply opened in 2010 after an upgrade.

Why do I always seem to get such niggles / issues after upgrades?!

Access 2010 database 1 of 12 tables locked after converting to Access 2010

Access 2010 database 1 of 12 tables locked after converting to Access 2010 Icon
Unable to add records or edit one table of an Access database with 12 tables after converting to Access 2010

The Table in question has 24670 records and is in the centre of the structure. It records the base data by reference to a date and uses the other tables for the common data.

All other functions of the database work providing reports,

It is as if this one table has been locked in some way.

The database had no problems under Access 2007 and new records could be added to the table in question

Report Of Modified, Deleted, And New Records Over The Past Month, Access 2010

Report Of Modified, Deleted, And New Records Over The Past Month, Access 2010 Icon
I am using Access 2010 on Windows 7, although some users of the DB will be using Windows XP.

I want to make a monthly listing added, deleted and modified records over the past month. We have a database of urban poor community locations (in one table) and various other tables of demographic data collected at those locations (such as eviction information, eviction threat information, relocation site survey information).

We have staff who regularly visit these urban poor communities and will be updating the database throughout each month, such as by adding new records about eviction threats, or modifying existing records based on new information fromcommunity members.

Occasionally, records will be deleted from some tables, for example when a community is evicted (in this case a record will be removed from the urban poor community profiles table and another added to the evictions table).

Import & Link HTML Datasheet In Access 2010

Import & Link HTML Datasheet In Access 2010 Icon
Access 2010 lets user import web datasheet which could be very useful, especially when you are dealing with data tables saved in HTML format. Through importing them to Access 2010 database you can easily start defining data types and apply constraints. Apart from importing data table, you can also link web datasheet with Access 2010 database table which enables smooth synchronization between data tables.
