Many organisations have large databases in Access that have been built up over the years; staff have learned enough to build a database with a good relational structure, create forms to enter data and write queries to generate some useful reports. However, when databases get large, making your queries and forms effective can become more complex and it’s worth investing in an advanced Access training course to get the most out of your data and save time. In our Microsoft Access advanced course, students will learn how to analyse data by creating complex queries, how to make forms and reports more efficient, how to speed up repetitive tasks by creating macros.
