About Microsoft Access Introduction

Microsoft Access Database

Microsoft Access is an invaluable desktop application that can be configured to meet most business needs. It has many benefits over Excel functionality but needs to be configured correctly to get the best results. The course will cover the basic operations of an Access database program and the advantages of using a relational database over and Excel spreadsheet (flat database). The course is informal but structured, and you will be encouraged to ask questions throughout.

Is this course for you?

You want to learn the basic functionality of an Access database including creating and editing new tables, relationships, forms, queries and reports and inputting and editing data. The course will provide a thorough understanding of detailed elements plus best practice techniques.

A typical Access course

There are usually between 3 and 6 delegates on the course, all from different companies. Some delegates have used Access before but have had no formal training. Others have not used Access but want to understand the differences, advantages and disadvantages between Access and Excel.
