Julitta Korol's Access 2003 Programming by Example with VBA, XML, and ASP PDF

This e-book has been useful.

My in basic terms genuine grievance is this e-book doesn't spend any genuine time speaking approximately Access.

If you just learn this publication you'll imagine you needed to do every little thing via VBA. i cannot ponder too many purposes to create a desk at runtime other than with a query.

The e-book can also be a bit lite on genuine global examples.

A great publication while you are construction a library of entry books.

Example text

Additionally, indexes are also useful for sorting and providing unique constraints. The DMVs record many index-related details, including how often an index is used, how it’s used (as part of a scan, as a lookup, by the application, or by system routines), whether it isn’t used at all, any concurrency problems accessing the indexes, and details of any missing indexes. Knowing about how the different types of indexes are used will give you a greater pool of knowledge from which you can propose solutions.

1 In context with other tools Developers and DBAs who lack knowledge of DMVs typically turn to the traditional problem-solving database tools, including tracing, cached plan inspection, Database Tuning Advisor, and Performance Monitor. These are discussed briefly in comparison with using DMVs. SQL SERVER PROFILER SQL Server comes with a SQL Server Profiler utility that allows you to record what SQL is running on your SQL Server boxes. It’s possible to record a wide range of informa- tion (for example, number of reads/writes or query duration) and filter the range of data you want to record (for example, for a given database or spid).

In many ways, especially for larger tables on mature systems, I feel statistics are a critical element in the efficiency of database systems. When you run a query, the optimizer looks at the columns you join on, together with the columns involved with your WHERE clause. It looks at the column data’s statistics to determine the probabilities involved in retrieving data based on those column values. It then uses these statistical probabilities to determine whether an index should be used and how it should be used (for example, seek, lookup, or scan).
