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.
