Streamlining Decision Support Front Ends

Decision-support applications deliver information used by executive management to analyze business trends and by line managers to analyze day-to-day performance of their business area and its staff. Supervisors need more targeted data, such as reviewing order entry operations.

Decision-support applications involve read-only access to data, so you aren't limited to datasheet or form/subform views of queries. Access list boxes offer faster performance and easier multi-record navigation than subforms, which are intended primarily for data entry. Combo boxes are the ideal control for letting users make ad hoc choices of the information they need to see.
