 Course Description

The two-day intermediate segment is intended for those already familiar with basic Access operations and are ready to make the transition from Access user to application developer. You will learn how to directly control and manipulate Access from behind the scenes to create queries, data entry forms and reports that function precisely in the manner you require. Access is far more powerful and flexible than it might initially appear, making Access suitable for every kind of database application.
