Get to Grips With the Power of Access Databases

Microsoft Access is flexible, powerful, and easy to use -- if you understand how it works. The difference it can make to the use and presentation of relatively complex sets of data can be quite astonishing.

Some of the screens can often resemble those in Microsoft Excel, but the ability to link data sets to create reports, forms and query results is on a different level altogether.

Our Microsoft Access training courses take you through from the basics -- it's often a good idea to attend the Introduction and Intermediate classes on successive days to secure a solid foundation -- to high-performance, automated applications using SQL commands, macros and Visual Basic.

We have scheduled public (open) classes running at all our UK centres, or can run a private (closed) class for you at your offices, all at excellent prices. So when would you like to start?

What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend
About Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is one of the more advanced programmes in the Microsoft Office suite, and is used to build powerful databases with relatively little effort. The aoftware is extremely versatile, and uses can range from linking simple data lists to fully functional accounts and invoicing systems.

But of all the Microsoft Office applications, Access needs to be set up and used in the correct way. It is possible to teach yourself up to a point, but once an application starts to be used, the effects of not following best practice can have serious consequences. By attending an Activia training course, delegates will learn the correct way to set up, run and develop database applications, with no fear of problems later on.

Are you taking advantage of what Access can offer?

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 the application to recognise and work with the shared relationship.

Our Approach

Activia courses are fully interactive, and tailored workbooks enable delegates to fully engage with the course material, and use the software to develop their skills, all under the tuition of an experienced and helpful trainer. Our fees are competitive too and can easily be accommodated into your training budget.

More about training with Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level (click here to view our Tools and Resources) which ensures you book on the correct course.   This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Microsoft Access course (click here to view our Tools and Resources) to suit your own or your company project requirements, incorporating the modules which cover the subjects you want to learn.
