Chapter 2. Touring Access Databases > Opening a Sample Database

Opening a Sample Database

Access provides a sample database application called Northwind Traders—a database and project version—for you to explore. The Northwind Traders contains sample data and database objects for a specialty foods company. If you have specialized database needs, you can study the structure of the sample database, and then use them as models for your own.

Open a Sample Database

Click the Help menu.

Point to Sample Databases.

Click the sample database you want.

If necessary, read the introduction screen, and then click OK to continue.

A switchboard opens for the sample database.
