Course Description

The purpose of this course is to teach you the important features of Access 2019 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.
 
It's highly recommended that you install Access 2019 on your computer. You can purchase Microsoft Office to get all of the Office applications, or subscribe to Office 365 to pay a monthly subscription for the software.
 

What is Microsoft Access 2019?

Unless you've used Microsoft Access before, you may be unclear as to what exactly it is and how you'll use it.  Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word are very popular programs, so we're very familiar with them, if only by name. Access, however, isn't as widely used or discussed, so before we begin this course, it's important to look at what this software program does, and how it will help you.

Microsoft Access is an information management tool that allows you to store, report, and analyze information. If you're trying to use Excel to manage large amounts of information, then chances are Microsoft Access will be helpful to you.

You see, a spreadsheet program such as Excel is great if you want to maintain and calculate small bits of information. It's easy enough to use when you want to create a spreadsheet, enter data, create formulas, etc.

Excel makes it very easy to sort, filter, and format quickly. That said, though, Excel is not ideal for handling hundreds of records if you have one thing you need to track. It's easy to have errors, and that makes analysis, summing, and reporting difficult.

Microsoft Access is the answer to that problem. Think of it as Excel's big sister. She handles everything that Excel might have a tough time doing.
