About This Course
Every one of us, whether we know it or not, are surrounded by data. Some of it we keep track of on paper or in spreadsheets. Some of it is really important, like tasks that are part of our daily work. BUT, unfortunately, very few of us use the one tool that was built to handle all of our data needs – the Microsoft Access database.
Should you take the time to learn Microsoft Access?
Many people do not use the Microsoft Access database program for 2 reasons:
- They think it is too complex
