Microsoft Access 2007 Training: Course Description

It’s Access…do we need to say more?

The possibilities are nearly limitless of how you can use Access at work. But, many aren’t brave enough to tackle this pretty powerful development tool. In our Microsoft Access 2007 training course, we’ve worked hard to take the fear out of database development to produce a course that even the most novice database user can progress through and walk away a developer. We hope that’s music to your ears. 


Of course, you can read the outline, but here’s what you’ll get…in a nutshell

Like many of our Microsoft Office training courses, Access 2007 Training consists of short, succinct, standalone topics – a favorite feature among many of our clients. This structure means you don’t have to wade through content that you already know. You can skip directly to the topics you want to learn about or start right from the beginning and watch the entire 10 hours from beginning to end. Although, we do recommend to take at least one break to grab some food.

Access 2007 Training Topics Include:

Work with database security

  • Planning & Designing a Database including an overview of the database design process
  • Building & modifying tables
  • Sort and Filter tables and forms
  • Work with Common Filters, Filter by Form, Filter by Selection and Advanced Filters
  • Design Select and Action Queries
  • Build & modify forms and reports
  • Understand primary keys, foreign keys and table relationships
  • Export your Access data to Word and Excel
  • Prevent data entry errors using features like the lookup fields, data validation, conditional formatting and combo boxes
  • Work with Parameter queries to pull different data sets every time you run a report









Are you still reading? Good. Because, we have more to talk about.

Our Microsoft Access 2007 Training course is best enhanced when viewed with our fresh learning platform that merges the best Learning Management Systems (LMS) and knowledgebase features into a slick enterprise-wide Software as a Service (SaaS) application. 

What Does that Mean for You?
  • Online, 24/7 access to full Microsoft Access 2007 Training course content that is also available as searchable, bite-sized training articles and videos that can be quickly found when needed through a handy, quick search feature.  (Training you need, when you need it)
  • Customized Microsoft Access 2007 Training for all levels of Office users that starts with topic introduction, continues through real-world exercises to practice what you learned and wraps up with a quiz to test your recall.  (Start where you want, practice what you see, prove your new skills)
  • With almost 200 topics to choose from and over 10 hours of recorded Access 2007 Training lessons, we're pretty confident that you'll learn something new, and if not, call us; we may have a teaching job for you.  (Every Microsoft Access 2007 Training video has a matching article)

Some Quick Microsoft Access 2007 Training Tips

Access 2007 Training Tip:  Create a Calculated Field in a Query

Calculated fields are convenient when you want to display a formula result on your query. And, since proper table design dictates that you don’t add calculated fields to a table because they are prime for user input errors, the perfect place for them is in a query and they’re as easy as creating a formula.

It’s easy - start each expression (or, calculation) with the name of the calculated field followed by a colon (:). For example: “TotalPrice:”. Then, surround field names with square brackets. For example: [UnitPrice] or [EmployeeName].  That’s it.  (Microsoft Access 2007 Training Tips: © KeyStone Learning Systems)


Access 2007 Training Tip: Have you Seen the Zoom Box?

In Design view, you can object view your custom expressions in a larger box. The next time you’re creating a calculated field in Query Design view, for example, press SHIFT+F2 to open the Zoom box. Now, that’s better.  (Microsoft Access 2007 Training Tips: © KeyStone Learning Systems)


Access 2007 Training Tip: Did you Know you can Create Forms with Tabbed Pages?

While you can use boxes and lines to separate fields of data on a form, you can also separate your fields onto different tabs. For instance, you can have one tab display business information for a contact while a second tab displays only personal information, and so on. In Form Design view, click the Tab Control option in the Controls group. Once it’s placed, just drag fields onto the tabs.  (Microsoft Access 2007 Training Tips: © KeyStone Learning Systems)
