You can use Access to build powerful databases with relatively little effort. Microsoft Access is extremely versatile, and applications can range from linking simple data lists to fully functional accounts and invoicing systems.
With Activia, delegates can check their skill level which ensures they book on the correct course. This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.
We can also tailor your Microsoft Access training to your needs, or to your company project requirements, taking you from first principles to whatever level you want to achieve.
About Microsoft Access
Access is a Relational Database Management System (or RDBMS for short). As you may know, all databases store information -- but Access is a relational system, in that it links together data stored in separate lists, or tables. As an example, one table could contain a list of customers while another might show orders placed. A connection would be made via an account number or ID appearing in both tables, thus enabling Access to recognise and work with the shared relationship.
Microsoft Access is one of the most powerful applications in the Microsoft Office suite, and requirements for Microsoft Access training can be extremely varied.
Activia courses are fully interactive, allowing delegates to engage with the course material. Our fees are competitive too and can be accommodated in to your training budget.
History Of Microsoft Access
Compared to earlier releases of the software, Access 2000 boasted much-improved security features – thanks to an intuitively designed Wizard that allowed users to customise their preferences. It was also possible to protect password data using the Visual Basics for Application feature. An added advantage of this version was that it could easily be converted in to an Access 1997 format.
The linked report and form control features updated automatically in this version. The 2003 release was also accessible to inexperienced users, providing them with a choice of 25 apps and 10 templates. Access 2003 also worked with a range of data sources, including ODBC and XML. From a visual perspective it was appealing too – providing an aesthetically pleasing front end that was easy to navigate.
The toolbar was removed in Access 2007 and was replaced with the ribbon. This feature grouped related functions in to tabs along the top of the screen, making it easier for users to access them. The 2007 release also ushered in the era of the Microsoft Button, which centralised core functions, ultimately making them more accessible.
Although Access 2010 had its problems, most people agree that its Macro Designer feature was a good idea. This feature worked in two ways – acting either before or after a key event. The program provided five unique types of Macro, each prefixed with the term 'Before' or 'After' to make its use value clear.
With the release of the 2013 version of Access, Microsoft shifted the emphasis from 'database' to 'database creation tool.' This meant users could create apps – so long as they were able to use SharePoint. Access 2013 now also works in line with other programs in the suite by directly connecting to Microsoft's Cloud service.
