Access Basic (conducted in English) kursus

You will learn

Access is a user-friendly and efficient tool if you want to create smaller and medium sized databases. You can work with any kind of information. All it takes is for you to structure your data correctly and then you can type in, search and present your information in any way you want. You must only store your data once! So, in order to do that, you must split up your data in several tables which you then link together by using relations.

After the course you will be able to:

  • Design and create a database including:
  • Create tables and define data types and field properties
  • Create relations between tables
  • Create and save queries
  • Design and create user forms using control elements, such as drop-down boxes
  • Design and create reports using group sections and sorting
  • Understand how a database works
