Outline

Expand All
Week 1

Review Access key concepts and terminology as you learn how to import, or share, data between Access and other applications without retyping. Then, you'll learn how to set up key fields in tables, plus you'll use action queries to quickly and easily manipulate multiple-table records with one command.

Week 2

Understand what table relationships are and what referential integrity means as you learn how and why to use these features. Then, learn how to create and modify forms and make them easy to use.

Week 3

In this lesson, you'll learn how to add a subform to a main form without the wizard, and you'll use the Tab control to arrange form data. Then, learn about query joins and data functions, which will help you get timely, high-quality data out of your database, so you see all the data you want and none of the data you don't want.

Week 4

Explore Access functions, crunch numbers with the best of them, and even design a mathematical formula of your own. Then, you'll build powerful, fast summary queries that total, count, or average the values in a set of records. You'll also discover the power of the crosstab query, which can not only summarize data but also rearrange it so that it becomes easier to understand. 

Week 5

Use the Report Wizard to build a basic report and fine-tune what you've built. You'll also learn about a fantastic tool—conditional formatting, which allows you to visually identify key report data. With a few clicks, your report will change from a mass of numbers to a map of trends and changes that affect your business. Then, you'll build a dialog box that allows the user to run reports based on custom-built criteria.

Week 6

In this lesson, you'll learn a little bit about Visual Basic, using it to make the reports dialog box you built in the previous lesson fully functional. Finally, you'll build a navigation form that directs users to the forms and reports they need. You'll also set up a database for shared use and modify the start-up options.

When can I get started?

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits.

How does it work?

Once a course session starts, two lessons will be released each week for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

The interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes two weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.

What if I need an extension?

The final exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the final exam has been released, you will have two weeks plus 10 days (24 days total) to complete the final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
