Microsoft Access is an information management tool that helps you store information for reference, reporting, and analysis. Microsoft Access helps you analyse large amounts of information, and manage related data more efficiently than Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet applications.
Microsoft Access has both advantages and disadvantages that you should research and consider carefully before deciding to use Access to meet your database needs.
However, if you have made the decision to proceed with Microsoft Access, I can provide consultancy services to develop the database for you. Similarly, if you already have a Microsoft Access database, I can provide training to enable you to build the queries, reports and forms that will enable you to extract the information you need from your database.
Course contents for standard courses are shown below. Alternatively courses can be tailored to your own requirements. The course content and exercises can be adapted so that they are built around your own spreadsheets and specific business requirements.
Access training courses are offered at foundation, intermediate and advanced level and in versions 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 and can be delivered onsite at your company premises or in a local office in Basildon, Benfleet, Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Clacton, Colchester, Harlow, Romford, Southend and all other areas of Essex.
