Computing is an important part of everyday life in the twenty-first century. From music and photos to banking and communicating online, computers have changed the way we work and live. There are many programs available to install and download on your computer and Microsoft Access is a database program that can be used to track information. Alison’s courses will teach you how to use this program to retrieve specific information from a database by using a query. A query is a question that you enter in a database program. The database program then performs the required operations to present the answer in the form of a report. A query helps you view specific data to modify or analyze it.
