Microsoft® Confirms SQL CE 4: The Next Gen Embedded Database

In large corporate houses, managing a huge list of clients, the suppliers, the producers, the customers and also the other external parties like the shareholders and the creditors become a tiresome job  due to the availability of a huge amount of information. Besides, in such large corporate houses which need to maintain a good website over the net often find it quite problematic to develop a fine website which would help a person to get to the website immediately and then get the best view of the available information over the net and derive the best possible information about the policies of the company and the details of the database.

In such kinds of situations, what a company has to do is that it has to outsource its database design project from some other companies who are especially adept in a database design. However, there are several problems, which are often faced by several companies who want to design their database. Often the small database designers, who take the project, fail to meet the specification and in some other cases, they often over charge for which it is almost impossible to cut the cost and raise the effective profit over all.

However, this is not going to happen anymore because now any person can design a database with the help of the SQL CE 4. The SQL CE 4 is the latest version of a database design tool made available for use to the public and the platform on which a person has to work upon is quite user friendly.

The greatest advantage of using the SQL CE 4 is that it has several embedded database management tools in it, which make it easier for the database developers to work on. Besides, the SQL CE 4 has several applications installed inside it one of which is the IIS Express 7.5. This is a dedicated server and it enables the programmers to deploy their code online, without any error.

The SQL CE 4 is a mixture of the TSQL and the SQL SERVER data types. This database-designing tool is also fully compatible with LINQ and etc.

It is for this reason that the demand for this software is increasing day by day in the market and more and more eager users are applying for buying the SQL CE 4 online. Purchasing it from over the net, is very easy. One just has to visit the website and get registered. After that, one can freely download the software; however do not expect to download it for free. Hence, for downloading it, you certainly have to pay the required amount and that too with the help of your credit card.

New Innovations in HP and Microsoft Partnership

About one years ago there was a deal that was signed by  Microsoft and Hewlett Packard which was worth a $250 million to team up around the cloud computing. It was indeed a weird announcement which led to a lot of buzz. They said the main objective for the team up was to collaborate with the management and skill level of the employees to help each other reach the top level of the business. At present we see that the results are showing and there is indeed a positive aspect in the entire business and hence we see that joint collaboration between the two has finally began to show fruits and they are making excellent profits working in a kind of partnership.

The partners have announced that they have made appliances which are enterprise-focused, which, they say will combine the infrastructure, applications and productivity into a solo unified system. The first half of the year plan has been announced today and there are indeed a lot to follow.

One of the main introductions is the HP Business Decision Appliance that is made with an intension of business intelligence applications. This is an application which, they say, hugely reduces the efforts and time for the organizations to manage business and deploy officials, and looking for trends and patterns that may not be very apparent. It is optimized in a way so as to run for Microsoft’s SQL Server Database and its collaboration with the Share-point software and also takes a lot less time to installs less than an hour to be precise.

The second option is the HP Business Data Warehouse Appliance and data store that is particularly designed for the mid and small sized companies that can deliver performance that suits the needs of the big business houses, but it doesn’t require a central administration to run it. The HP Enterprise Data Warehouse Appliance that was previewed in November is available now in the stores.

The messaging application which is geared towards making the installation of the Microsoft Exchange 2010 very easy, the server piece Outlook, the all purpose emails from Microsoft, contact and calendar software is widely used by companies around the world. The formal name is HP E5000 Messaging System for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 which come pre configured with best practiced designed in it. It also has a large and centrally archived mail box and is available in any device.

The Microsoft and HP are working towards making the HP Database Consolidation Appliance which can actually help to bring hundreds of applications in one appliance. This will only run the Microsoft Hyper V Cloud and SQL Server. This can also help in the deployment of IT projects and will ensure proper functioning of the same. The time taken for the roll out of the server is not specified yet as it can take anything between a year and 18 months.

How to Create a Query in Microsoft Access Using the LIKE Operator

In this post I will be talking about the usage of LIKE operator in Microsoft Access Database queries. If you have to perform searches in the text strings in any particular field in your Access database then you can use the LIKE operator in its several forms. LIKE operator can be used with the wildcards to make changes in the way it searches the given search string.

Given below are simple steps for creating a search query in Microsoft Access using the LIKE operator:


If you simply use the LIKE operator then you need to provide the complete search string with it and only then the search will happen. Example if you write LIKE “Apple” for field FirstName then it will only search for records that have “Apple” as the FirstName.


If you want to find all the Names that begin with “A” then you need to modify your LIKE operator by usage of the STAR (*) wildcard. In this case your search string will look like this LIKE “A*”. This will ensure that only those records will be added to the results which have their First Names starting with letter A.


To run a more precise query you can have more letters added to it. For example if you run LIKE “AP*” then only those records will be displayed which have their First Names starting with “AP” and none other.


We can further play with the insertion of wildcards and changing the position of the wildcard will alter the results altogether. For example if we write LIKE “*E” then it will result only those records which have their First Names ending with letter E.

Till now we have discussed the usage of wildcards for finding records which have a specific letter(s) in the beginning or end of the text. Now we will see the wildcard usage for finding records which have some specific set of letter(s) in the beginning and in the end, and also we will see how to fond records which have a set of letter(s) somewhere in the middle.


To find records which have letter A in the beginning and letter E at the end we need to write the following query Like “A*E”. This will search for all the records which have anything in the middle but A in the starting and E at the end.


Another important usage is to find records which have a text patter in the middle somewhere. For example if we wish to find the records which have letter Z in them then we need to use the wildcards this way LIKE “*Z*”. This will ensure that only those records are displayed as the results which have the letter Z in them.


If we extend the step7 to more than one letter then we can search for more results. Like if we wish to search for records which have “PPL” somewhere in them then use the LIKE as follows LIKE “*PPL*”.

How to Create Labels From Microsoft Access Reports

Database Management Systems is the most important application for any organization. It contains and process large amount of data. As we all know that generating mass mailing is one of the common uses of one of the most general uses, but is also very important role of a database. The Microsoft Access report is one of the best tools available in the market which helps us to store, analysis and process any kind of data.  MS Access contains the in-built Label creator which can be used to make and design labels for any kind of files and databases.

The most convenient features that Access has for all the users is that they can automatically start printing mailing labels from your own database. The labels are just a kind of reports. The instructions mentioned below apply to MS Access 97.

Step 1:

First and foremost open the Database window. And then open the Reports tab by clicking on it.

Step 2:

Now click on the icon new and you will see a dialog box appearing on the screen. Click on the icon which is their named as Label Wizard.

Step 3:

You need to locate the table or query that is to be used for the labels. And then Click OK.

Step 4:

You just need to follow the wizard’s instructions to select the fields and formatting used in the labels.

Step 5:

If you are willing to print addresses that are stored in an Access database, or you want to store and then format and print them using Access then just print your labels when you are satisfied with the result.

Step 6:

You can even start by creating a simple report that is formatted to look like a mailing label. The report will then get the address data from the table or query that stores the addresses. By Printing the report will give you a single label for each address in the underlying record source.

Use the Label Wizard to create the report. You can then customize the layout of the labels, or write Visual Basic® for Applications (VBA) code to extend the report to meet your needs. The last step would be to preview the labels. In case you’re not fully satisfied with the wizard’s work, you can even customize the look of your labels in Design view

As a note you may often want to print the addresses directly on the envelopes instead of printing them on labels and then applying the printed labels to the envelopes. To print a label on an envelope, you just need to define a custom label. In step 1 of the wizard, when you see a prompt to specify the label details, then you click Customize and create a custom label. Do not forget to set Label Type to Sheet Feed.

The above mentioned steps are quite simple to follow and give you a brief idea of all the options that Microsoft Access uses. So just follow the steps and you will be able to create labels from Microsoft Access report.

How to Add a One-to-Many Database Relationship in Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is one of the most popular applications used in database management. , as it is used for maintenance of relational database management system. Working with MS access is quite normal and easy, as it stores data in its own format basedon the Access Jet database engine. If you are working with Access then youknow that it can link the data with other applications or database. There aremany versions available for MS Access; current version is Microsoft Access2010. It is also very good for software developers, as Microsoft and softwaredevelopers can build application software and normal users can develop orbuild simple applications.

Now we need to understand first that what is one-to-many relationship, inthis type of relationship, a row in table A can have many matching rows intable B, but a row in table B can have only one matching row in table A.
You can use Microsoft Access relationships to search for and share dataacross multiple tables. Take an example of a plotter and you can create onetable to keep records of your pottery and second table to store records ofthe galleries. You can run a query that would show where each of your itemsis currently being displayed; you just have to create a relationship betweentwo tables.

Now we will show you some steps to create a one-to-manydatabase relationship.


First step is to assign a primary key as a unique identifier in a field in eachtable. Now you have to close down all tables and press the F11 key to openthe database window. On the toolbar click the relationship icon and if yourdatabase has existing relationship, It will show you all the relationships.


You will have to click the show table icon if your two tables do not appear.After clicking the show table icon, the add table or queries box will appear.Now double click the two tables you want to relate from the add table orqueries box.


Now after completing the step, close the add table/query box.


In order to relate from one table to the related field in the other table, drag thefield from the table. The field is called a primary key field in one table. Inthe other table the primary key is called a foreign key. Now you can see therelationship box, we recommend you to check to be sure that everythingis as you want it and then click create. After doing all these steps, therelationship is established and you can easily view your two tables with aline joining them to indicate that they are related.

So, the relationship we created here is called one-to-many relationship, youcan also create one-to-one and many-to-many relationships. To establish arelationship, be sure that related fields almost always need the same datatype and the field size property setting must be of same size. In MS accessonly two exceptions are there which are permissible.
