Microsoft Access: Advanced

Microsoft Office version 2013, 2016 & 365

Many organisations have large databases in Access that have built up over the years. Staff have learned how to build a database with a good relational structure, create forms to enter data and write queries to generate some useful reports. However when databases get big, making your queries and forms effective can become more complex, and it is worth investing in Advanced Access training to get the most from your data and save time.

Advanced Microsoft Access training builds upon skills covered on our Microsoft Access Training Course.

During this workshop you will master the following:

  • How to streamline data entry and maintain data integrity with the use of macros
  • Look for duplicate or unmatched records in the data
  • Create flexible queries to display specified records, allow for user-determined query criteria, and modify data using queries
  • Write advanced queries to analyse and summarize data
  • Learn to improve forms
  • Present the application is such a way that user can navigate to the appropriate tools
  • Understand how to maintain databases using Microsoft Office Access tools
  • Learn to share data between Access and other applications
  • Create and revise Microsoft Office Access macros
