Microsoft Access is an enigma to business professionals, primarily because many try to use Microsoft Office Access as they use Excel. Unfortunately, they fail to understand that the two applications are decidedly different tools, and they become frustrated when they do not realize their intended results. In this course, you will learn about tables and queries – two cornerstone pieces of databases. You will also learn how to link data between multiple tables and why your choice matters. Moreover, you will learn how to design and create a complete database, including one with Forms and Reports. If you're serious about using Microsoft Office Access to manage larger volumes of data, this course is for you.
