Microsoft Access 2016 (Basic)

  • Duration

    One day: 9.30am - 4.30pm

  • Description

    Microsoft Access is a database software application. It is a tool for storing information which can then be retrieved using reports and queries.

    All the information in the database is held in tables created by the user and forms are used to add information to the database in a more user friendly format. Queries are used to retrieve information from the database, which can then be displayed as a report. This course is an introduction to Access covering tables, forms, queries and reports.
