Application Overview: Microsoft Access 2003

Microsoft Access is a relational database management system which combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface. Access can use data stored in Access/Jet, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or any ODBC-compliant data container. Microsoft Access AutoForm creates a form that displays all fields and records in the underlying table or query. If the record source you select has related tables or queries, the form will also include all the fields and records from those record sources. You can also use the wizard, which asks you detailed questions about the record sources, fields, layout, and format you want and creates a form based on your answers. In addition you can also create a basic form and customize it in Design view to suit your requirements.

Users: IT, Database, Engineering, Finance, Legal, Marketing and Admin Professionals as well as anyone who needs create robust databases that can be searched, sorted, analysed, reported, updated and shared with other users.
