Advanced Microsoft Access

Advanced Microsoft Access Courseware (ACC201)

The Advanced Access course builds upon the foundational skills acquired in the Introduction to Access course, diving deeper into topics such as relationships, queries, table functions, advanced forms, reports, macros, and completing a desktop application. This course equips students with the skills and knowledge to handle more complex Access tasks, further enhancing their data management capabilities and proficiency with the software.

Access Version: This course primarily targets Access 2019; however, it can be used to teach Access 365 as well as earlier versions of Access. We draw attention to features that are not supported in earlier versions of Access, and point out alternative options, when available.

This is the updated version of 55280AC from the retired Microsoft Courseware Marketplace.
