Microsoft Office Access 2013: Part 1
Most jobs today involve some form of data management.
In the case of data workers, it may be their primary job task. For some, like research scientists and accoutants, data management may be a strong component of the job. And for others, such as sales clerks or those in the skilled trades, data management may consist of an incidental job responsibility, such as time reporting or recording a sale.
But virtually everyone is affected in some way by the need to manage data.
A relational database application, such as Microsoft Office Access 2013, can help you and your organization collect and manage large amounts of data. Access is a versatile tool. You can use it as a personal data management tool (for your use alone), or you can use it as a construction set to develop applications for an entire department or organization.
In this course, you will learn how to use Access 2013 to manage your data, including creating a new database; constructing tables; designing forms and reports; and creating queries to join, filter, and sort data.
You can also use this course to prepare for the Microsoft Specialist (MOS) Certification exam for Microsoft Access 2013.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Navigate within the Microsoft Access application environment and create a simple database
- Organize and manage data stored within Access tables
- Use queries to join, sort, and filter data from different tables
Create advanced queries, including action queries and parameter queries
- Create and format custom reports
Customize Access configuration options
This course is designed for students who wish to establish a fundamental understanding of Microsoft Office Access 2013, including the skills necessary to create a new database, construct data tables, design forms and reports, and create queries.
(Students must register at least five days before the start of class.)
