Chapter 2. Creating and Working with a Database


CHAPTER TASK: CREATE AND MODIFY A SIMPLE ACCESS DATABASE

Prerequisites

  • How to start Access.

  • How to use menus, toolbars, dialog boxes, and shortcut keystrokes.

  • How to open and modify database objects.

Stop typing lists of information in Microsoft Word or Excel! In this chapter, you will learn how to create databases that can store names, addresses, and any other type of information that you can think of. You will be pleasantly surprised to find that creating a database isn't all that difficult. Microsoft Access even comes with a Database Wizard that takes you step by step through the process of creating a database.

Because there are so many components that constitute a database, this chapter will cover a lot of groundbut thankfully not in great detail. In this chapter, you will learn to create and modify the major database objects: tables, forms, queries, and reports. You will even learn some basic database management tasks, such as how to delete and rename database objects and how to repair and compress a database.

If all you need is a simple, easy-to-use database, look no farther than this chaptermore than likely, everything you need to know about creating databases is here.
