A relational database application such as Microsoft® Office Access® can help you and your organization collect and manage large amounts of data. Access is a versatile tool. You can use it as a personal data management tool (for your use alone), or you can use it as a construction set to develop applications for an entire department or organization. In this course, you will use Access  to manage your data, including creating a new database; constructing tables; designing forms and reports; and creating queries to join, filter, and sort data.

The target student has experience using Microsoft Windows 10 and wants to establish a foundational understanding of Microsoft Office Access 2019, including the skills necessary to create a new database, construct data tables, design forms and reports, and create queries.

  • To ensure your success in this course, you should have end-user skills with any current version of Windows, including being able to start programs, switch between programs, locate saved files, close programs, and use a browser to access websites. For example, you can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking any previous Microsoft Windows classes or experience.

You will:
Navigate within the Microsoft Access application environment, create a simple database, and customize Access configuration options.
Organize and manage data stored within Access tables.
Use queries to join, sort, and filter data from different tables.
Use forms to make it easier to view, access, and input data.
Create and format custom reports.
