Most Helpful Customer Reviews
While most Access books focus on designing forms and reports, this book goes straight to the basics of analyzing data. After a short review of table design, the author quickly gets to the heart of data analysis by showing how to construct queries by using Access¿s graphical interface and illustrating how to write your own SQL. Advanced query techniques using subqueries and domain aggregate functions are fully described. The author demonstrates how to create pivot tables and charts from within Access and how to use Visual Basic for Applications to increase the power of your application. I recommend this book for beginning and intermediate users of Access who need to learn how to use Access to analyze data. Truitt L. Bradly Senior Actuarial Analyst Microsoft Access MVP 2007
This is a great book for any analyst looking to go beyond the standard queries and realize the full analytical potential of Access. I use this book almost daily in my work and it is the most useful book on Access that I own.
