Putting What You've Learned in Perspective

If you're new to Access, many terms used in this chapter may sound to you like ancient Aramaic. The objective was to give you an overview of some of the most important objects that comprise an Access application, the relationships between these objects, and how you assemble the objects you create into self-contained, easily navigable applications. Using the Database Wizard helps you quickly understand the components and comprehend the behavior of a completed Access application. If you're interested in designing an Access inventory management application, for example, use the Inventory Control template to create a simple example application. You're likely to find that one of the 22 wizard templates bears some resemblance to your intended application.

The remainder of this book covers each category of Access objects in detail, beginning with Table and Query objects and then progressing to Form and Report objects. By the time you get about halfway through this book, you gain the experience necessary to design your own versions of these objects. The last half of this book deals with advanced topics, such as exporting Access forms and reports to World Wide Web pages, relational database design, and writing professional-quality VBA code.
