- Queries and Access are where a lot of the magic…of the database comes to life, and truth be told,…they're one of my favorite components of any database,…but if you've never worked with them before,…then you might be wondering,…"Well, what exactly is a query?"…Simply put, queries are a very powerful way to ask questions…about your data.…You'll do this by pulling information out of…your existing data tables and combining that data…into new configurations on the fly.…Queries return answers in the form of a temporary datasheet,…but they don't take up any additional storage space…in the database because they only store the instruction…on how to reassemble your existing data…and don't store data of their own.…
And every time you run a query, it fetches the current state…of the data from the source tables,…so they're always up-to-date.…One of the best features of a query, though, is that…they look and function just like regular tables,…so you can connect them to forms and reports…in exactly the same way.…So far, we've looked at storing data into tables.…
The course also shows you how to build queries and action queries, create and design forms, use macros, integrate Access with the rest of the Office 2016 suite, and maintain your databases over time.
