Microsoft Access Tutorial This tutorial is designed to get the user up and running with MS Access in a rapid fashion. The four basic modules of Access are demonstrated: Tables, Forms, Reports and Queries. A business example is discussed first which provides a background for developing a simple database.
It is assumed that users of this tutorial are proficient in working with Microsoft Windows '95, Windows '98, Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP and with MS Excel. This includes the use of the keyboard and mouse. The tutorial is based on Microsoft Access which is part of the Microsoft Office Professional suite that also includes MS Excel, MS Word and MS
Powerpoint. The original tutorial was developed specifically for MS Access '97 (part of the MS Office '97 release). Now that MS Access 2000 is widely available, this tutorial has been
amended to include explanations of where Access '97 and Access 2000 differ. Most of the basic features and functions a
re the same between the two versions.
