About this book

Learn Microsoft Access by building a powerful database application from start to finish.

Microsoft Access ships with every version of Office, from Office 2019 to Office 365 Home and Personal editions. Most people understand the value of having a reliable contact database, but few realize that Access can be an incredibly valuable data tool and an excellent gateway for learning database development.

Introducing Microsoft Access Using Macro Programming Techniques approaches database development from a practical and experiential standpoint. You will learn important data concepts as you journey through each step of creating a database using Access. The example you will build takes advantage of a massive amount of data from an external source of nutritional data (USDA). You will leverage this freely available repository of information in multiple ways, putting Access to the test in creating powerful business solutions that you can then apply to your own data sets. The tables and records in this database will be used to demonstrate key relational principles in Access, including how to use the relationship window to understand the relationships between tables and how to create different objects such as queries, forms, reports, and macros. Using this approach, you will learn how desktop database development can be a powerful solution to meet your business needs.


What You Will Learn

  • Discover the relational database and how it is different from other databases
  • Create database tables and establish relationships between them to create a solid relational database system
  • Understand the concept and importance of referential integrity (RI) in data and databases
  • Use different types of Access queries to extract the information you need from the database
  • Show database information in individual, customized windows using Access Forms
  • Present insightful information about the database using Access Reports
  • Automate your database solutions with macros


Who This Book Is For
