Microsoft Access Querying

Available as classroom training course only

£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.

Alternatively, you could enquire about running the course in your office or even (if available) as a tailored online course.

"Thanks for running with just one person on the course. I have been on a few Wise Owl courses before and enjoy the style/approach employed (course materials, writing style, atmosphere in the classroom etc.)"

Magnus Windsor (Coloplast Ltd)

"Excellent as always."

Lisa De Prudhoe (DataQ Ltd)

"Great pace, great content, relaxed and informal. Fun training delivered in an interesting way. The trainer was fun, polite and very knowledgeable. I've had exposure to SQL but never had any training. Was really beneficial."

Paul Wharin (NHS North of England CSU)

"Our trainer was really great at bringing this course to life. He had a lot of content to go through but was always willing to stop and take questions."

Mark Whitehurst (Thermo Fisher Scientific)

"Our trainer was really knowledgeable and explained things well. There was the right number of breaks and the course length was good. I enjoyed the online training more than I thought I would, there were no technical issues either."
