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).
