Overview

As the most popular database management program on the market, Microsoft Access didn't need much improvement. But with the release of Access 2003, Microsoft managed to further enhance the way people organize, access, and share information.

In this new version, Access is more capable than ever, thanks to additional features like automatic error checking, automatic property updating, and the expanded ability to import, export, and work with Extensible Markup Language (XML) data files. The number of features it offers is truly impressive—and potentially daunting.

Anyone baffled by the multitude of features and functionality in Microsoft Access can get up to speed quickly with the help of Access 2003 Personal Trainer. Part of our new Personal Trainer Series, this book lets people of any technical level learn exactly what they need to know at their own pace. Unlike many consumer software tutorials that dumb down the material or present it in a confusing fashion, this book is written in a non-technical and engaging style that readers find fun, easy, and informative.

This book will not only help existing users, but those who received Access as part of Microsoft Office and are now ready to dip their toe in the water. It starts with Access fundamentals and then moves on to tables, fields, queries, forms, reports, macros, and advanced topics like linking information from an external source. Access 2003 Personal Trainer explains how you can easily:

  • Access information from multiple sources
  • Link business systems
  • Create powerful database solutions
  • Share information more efficiently

To best guide learning, Access 2003 Personal Trainer includes detailed diagrams, dozens of task-oriented lessons, and a fully interactive training simulation CD—everything you need to become an Access pro.

A fully illustrated, modular approach to the features of Access allows readers to proceed at their own pace.

    short easy lessons

    Perhaps this book could be called 'SQL made easy'. Basically, Access is Microsoft's way of letting you easily set up a database. This book shows how to use this front end. There is a substantial amount here, because Microsoft loves massive user interfaces. Or, more seriously, because controlling a database is no simple task, GUI or no GUI. At least here you are presented with short lessons. One or two pages each. If you have a specific Access need, the contents page that lists the lessons should be consulted. You never know. Sometimes the answer, or a close relative of it, may be suggested by a lesson. The conceptual boundary of the book is given in the last chapter, on advanced topics. Here is where you see integration with other Microsoft offerings like Excel or Word. These lessons are fine. But they are more noteworthy for hinting at far more intricate abilities.
