Key Points

  • Microsoft Access is a database program that enables you to collect, store, organize, use, and report on the data you collect.

  • Access gives you two methods for creating a database: You can use the Access Database Wizard or do it from scratch.

  • The database window contains the tables, forms, queries, reports, and other elements you’ll work with in Access.

  • The Access Database Wizard suggests tables, fields, formats, and styles you can use for your data tables, forms, and reports.

  • When you create a database from scratch, you create only the database file; you’ll need to add your own table, fields, forms, and reports.

  • When you create a database using the Access Database Wizard, the Main Switchboard enables you to enter, update, and report on data from a central menu.

  • Entering data in Datasheet view or in a data-entry form is a simple matter of typing the data and pressing Tab.

  • You can create a new table using the Table Wizard and a new form using the Form Wizard.

  • You customize a table or a form, arranging the layout and look of fields, by using Design view.
