A well designed database can increase the efficiency and can eliminate errors in your data storage protocols. By reducing redundancy, and eliminating the potential for human error, you can ensure that your data remains consistent and valid, and always up to date.
Access databases provide more than just a place to store your data. By creating a custom application that is specifically tailored to your project, an Access database creates the foundation through which you will quickly enter information, and more importantly, quickly retrieve answers to your questions about the data and build reports outlining the results.
This introductory course is designed for participants who wish to gain beginning to intermediate skills in using Microsoft Access to build relational databases for collecting, organizing, and analyzing their environmental data. It is applicable to anyone that manages environmental resources, sets or responds to environmental policy, or needs to evaluate regulatory compliance. This comprehensive class uses Access 2010 to cover in-depth the use of Tables, Queries, Forms, Reports, and Macro objects through extensive hands-on exercises. These Access database subjects are taught using real-world environmental examples with actual field data. This class is recommended for anyone desiring a concentrated exposure to Access training in a powerful tsix-hour class. For additional exposure, we recommended "MS Access Part 2 WEBINAR-Creating Efficient Workflows and Custom Tools in Microsoft Access (COMP-402W)" is offered beginning February 2,2016.
