How to Create Simple Queries

Access queries allow you to ask questions about your database—and, even better, to get the answers back. More generally, you might think of queries as a way to request particular bits of information from your database. Here are some examples of the types of information you can get from a query:

  • Which medicinal plants are in the database?

  • Which catalogs have I purchased plants from?

  • How many plants have I purchased from each catalog?
