Microsoft Access - Summary
You've reached the end of this Microsoft Access tutorial - congratulations!
What we've covered in this tutorial only scratches the surface of what's possible with Microsoft Access. The areas we covered represent the most common tasks that are performed with Access and other database management systems.
If you are familiar with relational database design, you will be able to use your knowledge of Access to store data across multiple tables. You can then create queries across multiple tables.
One area we didn't cover in this tutorial is reporting. If you need to print out reports from Microsoft Access, you can use the "Report Wizard" tab to do this (via the "Reports" tab). You will probably find this just as intuitive as creating a form or query. As with forms and queries, you can use Design View to adjust your report.
Also, you may have noticed when switching between Design View and Datasheet view that there's another option - "SQL View". SQL stands for Structured Query Language and is another method of creating tables, queries, and other database objects. If you're interested in learning more about SQL, check out the SQL tutorial. This will give also you a better understanding of what Microsoft Access is doing behind the scenes.
