Chapter 1. Welcome to Databases > A Sample Database: Northwind Traders

A Sample Database: Northwind Traders

Rather than tell you any more about the features of Microsoft Access, we’re going to show you. Figure 1.2 shows the opening form of the Northwind Traders sample database in Access 2003. (Northwind will first display a splash screen until you check the Don’t show this screen again option.) This sample database ships with Access 2003, and it demonstrates many of the features of Access. (If you can’t find Northwind, you might need to install it from the Office CD.)
