Cascade Delete Related Records __________ is an option that directs Access to automatically delete all records in related tables that match the primary key that is deleted from the primary table.
Indexed property __________ setting enables quick sorting in primary key in primary key order and quick retrieval based on the primary key.
One-to-Many relationship _________ is established when the primary key value in the primary table can match many of the foreign key values in the related table.
Query _________ enables you to ask questions about the data stored in the database.
Query Design view _________ enables you to create queries; the Design view is divided into two parts- the top portion displays the tables, and the bottom portion displays the fields and the criteria.
Simple Query Wizard __________ provides dialog boxes to guide you through the query design process.
Select query __________ displays only the records that match the criteria entered in Design view.
Field row _________ in the Query Design view displays the field name.
Table row _________ in the Query Design view displays the data source.
Sort row _________ in the Query Design view enables you to sort in ascending order or descending order.
Show row _________ in the Query Design view controls whether the field will be displayed in the query results.
Criteria row _________ in the Query Design view determines which records will be selected.
Delimiter _________ is a special character that surrounds the criterion's value.

When adding criteria to the query design view:
Which of the following is true with respect to an individual's hire date and years of service?
