Microsoft Access Querying Training Course

£375 + VAT for most venues (£495 + VAT for London)

1 day

This one-day course is aimed at people who don't know how to use Access, but have a database that they want to interrogate. The course explains the principles underlying your corporate database (if you bring a copy in, we'll do much more than this), then shows how to create queries to get at the data it contains. Learn how to select data, how to aggregate it and how to create expressions, then at the end of the course see a brief introduction to how forms and reports work.

We don't have any dates scheduled for this course, but we may well consider adding them - it's always worth asking & nbsp; (or consider an onsite Access training course).

"Course materials are really useful and very comprehensive. Lots of useful tips and tricks."

Clair Rigby (Royal Northern College of Music)

"I would like to say that I enjoyed the course very much and found it very informative. The trainer was incredibly professional and helped explain all the elements in the SSRS Course, ensuring that we fully understood each topic before moving on. I really liked the fact that the trainer explained multiple methods of achieving the same outcome in the use of SSRS as it helped us all to find what method was best suited for us. The course was really well structured and I didn’t feel rushed when completing the exercises, which were an added benefit as they allowed us to expand on the skills we were learning during the training. The course was beneficial to my personal development and I have already begun applying the training in my role. The supporting documents provided have also been great in helping me implement the training in practice."
