Microsoft Access is a powerful application with lots and lots of options.
This module will get you started with Access and introduces you to the essential parts of the Access window,
and you will learn the most common ways to open and use an Access database. After completing this module you will be able to:
Open and close an Access database
Identify the components of the Access window
Use Accesss online help system to find the information you need
Use the Database window to navigate a database
As with many of the Microsoft Office applications, there are many ways to complete a given task within Access.
In this course I will cover the most common way. If you are familiar with a different way to complete a task, feel free to use it. Occasionally I will cover alternative approaches in a sidebar.
