MS Access


Microsoft Access 2010 is an information management tool that allows you to store, report, and analyze information within a relational database. If you’re trying to use Excel to manage large amounts of information, then chances are Microsoft Access will be helpful to you. Access makes it easy to keep track, organize, and sort your data. It can be the back-end of a business, keeping your records for you.

It is this course’s purpose to teach you the important features of Access 2010 and how to use them. This course was designed for beginners so that even if you’ve never so much as opened the program before, you can learn how to use it. Once we cover the basics, we’ll move on to advanced features. If you’ve used Access before, perhaps prior versions, the first few lessons will be a refresher and introduce you to some of the updates you’ll encounter in the newest version of Microsoft Access.
