Course Description

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.  

You'll learn:

·    All about databases and how they work

·    An understanding of how Access works to make even its complex inner workings seem simple

·    How to navigate Access

·    How to create tables, forms, reports, and queries

·    How to enter criteria into your data

·    How to form expressions and create functions

·    How to customize the appearance of forms and reports

·    How to use Access for home-record keeping or for a business

And much, much more

If you're not familiar with Access 2010, it can be overwhelming.   The program is large and navigating it without any help or experience can seem impossible.   This course takes its time and shows you around Access.   We'll break everything down into small chunks so that Access 2010 is just as easy for the beginner to use as it is someone who's been using it for years.   And if you've used Access before, don't worry.   We have plenty of updates to show you – and a few more things to teach you as well.
