Microsoft Access Querying

Available as classroom training course only

£695 + VAT for most venues (£795 + 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.

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts (note that some of these reviews may be for our online courses).

"Trainer was friendly and very knowledgeable; was very easy to learn from them."

Jonathan O’Leary (Liquid Logic (System C))

"Just to say thank you to our trainer; his breadth of knowledge in SSRS, VBA and SQL helped me better understand it. Not the easiest product to use, but I now have learned some valuable techniques and tips around some of the bugs I have been encountering. "

Michael Taylor (Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust)

"Very relaxed, yet informative course that covered a wide range of topics."

Ben Robinson (Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust)

"I really enjoyed my training session, with one of the best trainers I have met. She is very knowledgeable and engaging and goes at just the right pace for all that are on the course. I was very dubious as to how it would work remotely but I thought it was excellent!"

Sue Thomas (STMicroelectronics (R&D) Ltd)

"The course was excellent. One would expect a company offering such courses would have capable, competent and knowledgeable tutors leading the class. Our trainer met that bar easily, but she was also very engaging, patient and supportive. It’s these personal qualities that made the course stand out amongst others I have attended."
