Access 2007 Essential Training

with David Rivers

Video: Welcome

Hi and welcome to Microsoft Access 2007. I'm David Rivers. When it comes to creating and using databases on your desktop computer, Microsoft Access is the industry standard. Access is part of certain Microsoft Office Suite products but not all. You'll need Microsoft Office Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise to get Access, along with all the regulars like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. In this title we'll begin with a good foundation covering important database concepts and terminology before moving into the application itself.
