During this hands-on beginners course, students will learn to create and edit Microsoft Access databases with tables, queries, forms and reports. First, tables will be designed with various types of fields and properties including fields with text, numbers, dates and other types of data. Students will learn to create drop-down menus and then use the menus in tables and forms. Queries will be created including select, delete and update queries to extract, change, delete or even calculate data with basic calculated fields. Simple relationships between tables will be set to use in other Access objects. Students will also design and run basic forms and reports which can then be exported to Excel or PDF (portable document format). Each student will receive a full course manual including tips, tricks and shortcuts.
Prerequisite: Microsoft Excel: Introduction or equivalent knowledge and skills.
Location and timing: Public scheduled courses are held online in virtual classroom format or in downtown Toronto and run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (Eastern Time).

You can remove comments in Word by right-clicking, using the Review tab in the Ribbon or using the Inspector. The problem with comments is that they may be hidden if markup is not displayed. It’s a good idea to display markup and then remove comments.
You can change or fix the format of a number field in a Microsoft Word mail merge document using switches in field codes. Number formatting issues tend to occur when the source document for the mail merge is an Excel workbook or Access database.
You can create labels in Microsoft Word by running a mail merge. This is typically used to generate and print bulk mailing labels for names and addresses of clients or other contacts. You’ll need to create a main document for the labels in Word and then connect to a data set or list in an Excel worksheet.
