Now that you've learned how to build tables and to view your data using Forms, it's time to learn how to analyze your data using Queries. A query allows you to pull exactly the records you want at any time, so you can view and analyze your data in a variety of ways. They can be created for a one-time use, or saved to use over and over again. You can make a query to select records that meet a certain criteria. For example, double-click on Maryland Orders to see all your orders from a particular state.
Double-click on Order Totals, and you can see a query that calculates the total price for an order, or maybe you want to analyze if any of your Sales Reps are overpaid or underpaid. Double-click on the Sales Reps Phone List to see a contact list of your employees, or you can also use a Query as the basis for a report, like this Sales Reps Phone List Report right here. You can also do action queries to Update information within a table, or to Delete all records that match your criteria.
Basically, you'll create a query whenever you want to ask questions of your database.
