Chapter 36. Access Essentials > Using Wizards to Create Databases and Objects

Using Wizards to Create Databases and Objects

As noted earlier, Access offers a collection of wizards to help you create individual objects in a database that you're developing. In addition, Access includes another set of wizards that create complete, special-purpose databases, devoted to specific business procedures. These wizards create fully developed database applications designed to handle common business tasks, such as expense accounting, time and billing management, and order entry.

The wizard-generated databases create a full set of tables, queries, forms, and reports, as well as a sophisticated database application. The centerpiece of each of these canned databases is a form called a switchboard, which offers one-click options for viewing tables, opening data-entry forms, running queries, and producing reports. The menus and forms are tied together with VBA code, which you can easily inspect and borrow for other applications.
