Introduction to Microsoft Access

Course Overview

Is your business data proliferating beyond your control? Are the links between your various files, spreadsheets and documents becoming too difficult to manage?

In which case, you need to consider consolidating your data within a database. This can seem an intimidating task, but if you approach it through Access, it is within the grasp of any computer literate user. While having the power of many more expensive and heavy-duty systems, it provides a much more familiar and intuitive approach to both building and using a database. It has the added advantage of probably already existing on your system. Microsoft Access training is thus perhaps the simplest and cheapest way for the non-technical person to approach databases.
