Microsoft Access 2010
  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • Microsoft Access 2010 is a software program used to build and run databases. You do not need any prior experience working with Access to follow this free course, but if you are familiar with previous versions, then this course will help you quickly make the transition to this upgraded version.

    In this course you will learn how to design and create tables for a new database. You will learn how to construct these tables in the database and link them with primary key fields. You will be shown how to create the relationships between the tables and how to extract information from them using queries.

    This free MS Access course will also review keyboard shortcuts which help you work faster by relying more on the keyboard. Databases created with Access can also be viewed and edited online by uploading them to SharePoint and this course will take you step-by-step through this process. Microsoft implements some safety precautions when you work with online files, and this course will show you how to activate your content after you download it.
