Microsoft Access Essentials Course
Data is everywhere. Whether you are at the grocery store, office, laboratory, classroom, or ballpark, you are awash in data: prices, schedules, performance measures, lab results, recipes, contact information, quality metrics, market indices, grades, and statistics.
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.
If you do well in this unit, you should be able to:
- Identify the terminology and functions common to most database management systems.
- Identify the qualities of valuable information.
- Identify the elements of good database design.
- Create and use tables.
- Create and use queries.
- Create simple reports and forms.
- Use the Access online Help feature.
- Discuss ethical issues connected to the use of databases.
This course is designed for students who wish to establish a foundational understanding of Microsoft Office Access, including the skills necessary to create a new database, construct data tables, design forms and reports, and create queries.
