Microsoft Access 2013: Working With Information in Your Database

This one-day session offers training on extracting subsets of information from a single table or from a set of related tables held in a database.

This session only covers one stage of database use: extracting information from existing tables. If you are looking for a comprehensive Microsoft Access training course, our three-day Microsoft Access: Comprehensive course may be more appropriate for you.

About the course

This one-day course follows on from the Microsoft Access: Designing and Creating Your Database course. You will learn:

  • how information stored in a table, or a set of related tables, can be filtered
