Main Presentation: Use Pass-through Queries for a More Robust Database Solution

Presenter: Patrick Headley

Youíve created a database application in Microsoft Access and you used a database server, as the back-end in order to achieve a high level of performance but there are still some complex processes in your application that take a long time to complete. For example, maybe thereís a report with a large amount of aggregated data that takes a long time to display, even though you used a server View for performance. Donít lose hope. Maybe all you need is a Pass-through Query and some code.

In this presentation you will see how Microsoft Access Pass-through Queries are different from the queries that you normally see in Microsoft Access and how they can make even the most complicated features of your application run quickly. While the focus of the presentation is on Pass-through Queries, you will also see some database server code. This presentation begins with some basic query concepts and finishes with some complex procedures that take advantage of Pass-through queries. So, whether you are new to Microsoft Access or a seasoned pro, there is something in it for you.
