Access Training

Microsoft Access Training starts with a simple single table database. Users will understand how each object works within Microsoft Access. The first session covers some of the core concepts followed by basic tables, queries, forms and reports. The second session involves using Access as a relational database and covers creating relationships, calculation in queries, linked forms and reports. The advanced session looks at macros to automate your database and more detailed reports. Users will learn how to customise a database and attach events to object properties.

Venue & Duration: Newcastle Training Room. 1 Day Duration. Free sandwich lunch is provided and parking is available.

Costs: Between £125 for a group book and £250 for a single delegate. Ask about One to One prices.
