Every one of us, whether we know it or not, are surrounded by data. Some of it we keep track of on paper or in spreadsheets. Some of it is really important, like tasks that are part of our daily work. BUT, unfortunately, very few of us use the one tool that was built to handle all of our data needs – the Microsoft Access database.
Should you take the time to learn Microsoft Access?
Many people do not use the Microsoft Access database program for 2 reasons:
1. They think it is too complex
2. They do not realize how incredibly powerful it is.
This course is dedicated to resolving the complexity question by demonstrating the basics of HOW Access is constructed and why the structure makes sense. Most courses just bury students in details, never starting with an overview and never showing students how the different parts can be used to increase productivity. By the time you have finished the first sections of the course, you will understand WHY Access is built the way it is and feel comfortable moving around in the program.
Once you understand the basic structure, the course will show you many practical demonstrations of what Access can be used for. By the end of the course you will have a very good idea EXACTLY how you could use Access to increase your productivity.
You will see demonstrations of many tasks that are easy to do with Access, but difficult or impossible to do with Excel. This is not to say that Excel is not an excellent program. It is a wonderful program and we use it every day, but it is not a database. The best of both worlds is to use both programs together!
So, while this course will provide you with a lot of information on the parts of Access and how they work, the overall objective is to provide you with enough information to decide if Access is right for you and how you might use it. At that point, the more detailed courses that are available will make much more sense and you will be able to go through them with a specific sense of purpose.
Learn about Access Objects and how they work together. Learn how the screen is organized and become very comfortable with moving around inside the various parts of the program.
