Building Access Database  «Prev 

Everyday Databases

Access is a tool for managing databases which are carefully structured catalogs of information (or data). Databases can store just about any type of information, including numbers, pages of text, and pictures. Databases also range wildly in size since they can handle everything from your list of family phone numbers to a product catalog for Distributed Networks. Using Microsoft Access you can design complete databases, maintain them, search for valuable nuggets of information, and build attractive forms for quick and easy data entry.
