Access Essentials: Introduction Part I
In this webcast David Ringstrom, CPA turns helps Excel users establish a good grounding in Microsoft Access. The session opens with a comparison between Excel worksheets and Access tables, and then demonstrates how easily data can be moved between both programs. From there David walks attendees through building a simple timekeeping database from scratch. This gives first-hand experience with the major components of Access databases: tables, queries, forms, and reports.
David will teach from Access 2010, but will provide detailed handouts with specific instructions for these versions of Access: 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013.
