    Require assistance with MS Access

    Since I have a co-op work term coming up, I've been noticing that many employers require that you are good or at least familiar with MS Access.

    I've never used MS Access, in fact, I don't even have it installed.

    I was wondering if there are any nice and easy tutorials that I could use to quickly familiarize myself with it.

    Please don't give loads of pages on it, as I'm short on time. All I'm looking for is a basic tutorial that could be enough to help me land with a job that requires either basic knowledge or good knowledge of MS Access.

    Shukria!

        Hi Sadiyah,

        This is what I use as an intro tutorial in my 3rd year MIS course:

          Umar, thanks a bunch! I'll print it out and go over it, insha'Allah.

          risc, I have very limited time and I'm looking for a very basic and quick introduction, so that I could apply for jobs that want the prospective employees to be familiar with MS Access. I'm looking into purchasing a book that I could use to teach myself and also to use for reference.

            If you want dis book do tell me


            Wrox Press Expert One-on-One-Microsoft Access Application Development
            by Helen Feddema (Author) 29197KB

            If you are developing databases for your own use, the process need not be complicated. But when you build databases for clients, many of whom may not be familiar with Access or comfortable with databases in general, you have a lot more work to do. I hope this book will make that process easier.
            In these pages, I will teach you how to set up tables and relationships to ensure that the database is properly normalized. Then I’ll help you write VBA code to create the connective tissue that turns a bunch of tables, queries, forms, and reports into a complete and coherent application. We’ll pay special attention to the important but often inadequately documented area of Automation code, which is used to communicate with other Office applications.

            Over years of working with Access, I’ve created some add-ins to save time when developing applications. I’ll show you how to use them to create a main menu for an application, automatically apply a naming convention to database objects, and ensure a consistent and professional appearance of the application’s forms.

            This book helps you write VBA code that unites database components into an application that works.

            What you will learn from this book

            How to build integrated Access-based applications that support multiple clients and databases
            Tips for streamlining application creation
            Maintenance required throughout an application’s life cycle, including migrating data from legacy systems and upgrading Office
            How to use Automation code to exchange data among Office components and even some non-Office programs
            Ways to avoid glitches when building Access applications that work with Excel, Word, and Outlook
            Who this book is for

            This book is for experienced Access users who are familiar with creating Access objects and writing VBA code, but who need help transitioning from competent users/programmers to full-fledged Access developers.

            Wrox Expert One-On-One books present the wisdom accumulated by an experienced author who is recognized as an expert by the programming community. These experts challenge professional developers to examine their current practices in pursuit of better results.

              Bhai, the book you mentioned looks difficult?

              Here's what I had in mind: http://www.course.com/catalog/produc...=0-619-02089-X

              I've used MS Excel by the same company and it was a really good book. Unfortunately, I sold it and I gotta get a copy of that too. :S
