Microsoft Access Database: Query In Microsoft Access As Nested

Here’s a quick video tutorial which covers how a query in Microsoft Access is nested in another Access query and the reason why you may want to approach this technique instead of creating one big query in the first place.

BTW: The narrator sounds like one my former physics lecturers which if being in a classroom on a hot summers Friday afternoon didn’t send you into a comatosed state then he did!

It’s only three and half minutes long  – luckily :)…

Microsoft Access Database: Query In Microsoft Access As Nested

The way I use a nested query in Microsoft Access is for the purpose of re-using queries again and again making it modular. This means, one query could be a base query for other queries to hang off it when wishing to summarise data and provide more locally based reporting.

In other words, split the query in Microsoft Access into two tiers; a base query for queries that will have dependencies making reporting easier to manage.

    To create a formula in MS Access you use either a query, form or a report where you create expressions (using sometimes the expression builder to help you).
    In the latest version (Access 2010), you now have the abiity to add a special ‘calculated’ field into a table for the first time.
    To create column totals (at the bottom of a report), you are typically looking to a report for this output using sum and other aggregate functions.
    Take a look at me eBook offers to help step you through the above.
