Microsoft Access Part 1: Introduction to Building Environmental Databases
Access databases are more than just data tables. An Access database includes a collection of objects that all work together to perform specific tasks quickly and efficiently. By building on the knowledge gained in part one of this course, we will create highly efficient customized workflows that can reduce complex data processing and reporting tasks down to a single click.
This is the second course in a 2-part series. In "Introduction To Building Environmental Databases With Microsoft Access (COMP-401)", students learn the basic elements of constructing queries, forms, macros and reports. In this recommended third day, you will build on those skills by creating end-user application examples that bring the newly learned elements together. Access analytic tools, PivotCharts, and PivotTables will be introduced, and an SQL primer will be included. This course is separate from COMP-401 so that students may take it at a later date if you do not have flexibility in their schedule, however we highly recommend that the two courses be taken together. COMP-402 is not meant to be taken as a stand-alone class without first taking COMP-401.
