KEY LEARNING POINTS
The Microsoft Access 2010 Online Training course is divided into three sections, taking students from the most basic concepts of database tables, through to building data collection forms and up to the use of macros and data validation routines. Using a step-by-step approach, each new concept builds upon the last, helping students acquire new skills in a logical way.
The introduction section of the course takes students through:
- Understanding table creation and design.
- Finding, editing, sorting and filtering data.
- Building table relationships and enforcing referential integrity to keep data “clean”.
- A basic introduction to functions and using the formula creator.
Once the basic concepts have been properly understood, the Intermediate section introduces concepts like:
- Using aggregate functions and totals to simplify calculations.
- Building forms using the forms wizard to simplify data collection and display.
- Using form controls to create a true application interface for the database.
The final, advanced stage of the course focuses on creating reports, data access pages and macros, along with advanced database management techniques.
- Building reports, and using calculations and graphics to improve the appearance of data.
- Building macros and assigning actions to form buttons, increasing the functionality of database applications.
- Importing and exporting data.
- Using the SQL language to manipulate data in the database directly.
