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  (or consider an onsite Access training course).

You should already be a confident Windows user to attend this course, but do not need to have used Access before. Note that most people find Access harder to learn than Excel.
