If you're responsible for tracking and managing data for your company, learning how to effectively use Microsoft Access can increase your effectiveness, help you save time, and protect important contact information and records. MTI's Microsoft Access course is designed to provide attendees with the skills they need to properly create and utilize Access databases. Note: Participants must have strong computer skills and a solid background working with Excel to enroll in this class.

Learning Objectives

This course is designed to provide skilled computer users with the training they need to plan and set up a Microsoft Access database, including working with tables, queries, forms, and reports. This two day, hands-on seminar is taught in a computer lab. Participants will receive practical, hands-on training on an individual PC.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Creating a Database
  • Organizing Data
  • Entering Data
  • Modifying a Table
  • Relationships Among Tables
  • Queries
  • Filtering Data
  • Forms
  • Reports
  • Importing and Exporting Data
  • Linking from Excel
  • Linking to other Access databases or SQL Server tables

This two day seminar is designed to familiarize students with basic to somewhat advanced select statements (queries) using Microsoft SQL Server. Four sample databases (and stored procedures that  reference them) are provided for discussion and practice.  Unlike many sample databases available, each sample  database has enough complexity to provide useful practice, but is not too complex to be understood by a beginner.

SQL Server Benefits

SQL Server is MUCH MUCH more powerful than either Microsoft Query or Microsoft Access. SQL Server allows for much more  complex manipulations, and the queries are easier to write. SQL can perform very complex manipulations on numerical, datetime, and text data "in bulk". You write the formula  one time, and SQL does the manipulation/calculation for all  selected records.

  • If you use Microsoft Query to pull and manipulate data from MS Excel, you know it is quite limited.
  • If you use MS Access for reporting, you probably have many subqueries that must be joined into a main query (such as qryMonthly_FinalResults, qryMonthly_sub1, qryMonthly_sub2, qryMonthly_sub3, qryMonthly_sub4, qryMonthly_sub5, etc.) SQL Server can consolidate these subqueries into just one stored procedure (query) using either Unions or Correlated  Subqueries. 
  • Union queries are much easier to create in SQL than in  Access. Joins are easier to understand. Table variables (tables created in memory) can be made then updated to manipulate data into very complex information easily.
  • SQL Server's "Case" statement replaces nested If statements, and are incredibly simpler to write.
  • Stored Procedures with input parameters allow the reuse  of a single query for multiple sets of criteria (where salesDate Between @startDate and @endDate), so you can execute the stored procedure at any time with different dates.

Topics include:

  • Creating Tables
  • Primary Keys and Unique Indexes
  • Table Relationships
  • Select Statements
  • Joins - Inner, Left, Right
  • Casting
  • Converting Dates
  • Datepart()
  • Datename()
  • Aliasing
  • Left and Right functions
  • Concatenation
  • And/Or
  • Case statements
  • Parameters
  • Wildcards
  • Stored Procedures
  • Variables
  • Aggregates (SUM, COUNT, MIN, MAX) and Group By
  • Correlated Subqueries
  • IF statements
  • GOTO and RETURN
  • UNION
  • Exists / Not Exists

As time permits, the following topics might be covered:

  • Insert Statements
  • Table Variables
  • Update Statements
  • While Loops

Note: The use of Microsoft Access for linking to SQL Server and linking from Excel will be covered. Making MS Access reports is not covered; regsister for our Microsoft Access user level course to learn that skill. Using SSIS (SQL Server Integration Service) for importing in bulk directly from Excel will also be covered.

Pre-requisite Knowledge

Prospective students should be familiar with the following topics in MS Excel: Data Types (formats), Naming Rules, Data Validation, Naming Cell Ranges

Machine Requirements:

This class is taught in a computer lab with desktop computers. If you want to use your laptop instead of our machines, the following requirements apply:

  • The "Pro" version of your Microsoft operating system. The "Home" version of any OS will not run SQL Server. You will need at least XP Pro.
  • SQL Server 2005 or greater (SQL Server 2005 Express is fine). Both SQL Server 2005 Express and SQL Server 2005 Mangement Studio Express, and directions for installation are available for download on MTI's FTP server. Once you are registered for the course, you will get a username and password.
  • The installation disc for your operating system will be  required to add some features.
