Chapter 6. Organizing Your Data > Organizing Data Using Access

Organizing Data Using Access

Creating an Access database is a little more complicated than setting one up in an Excel workbook. Fortunately, Access provides wizards that help you through the basics. The databases you can create using Access wizards are samples that can occasionally be used “as is,” but often require extensive customization to meet specific functional requirements.

Although many knowledge workers create Excel databases by themselves, when the database requirements indicate that the power of Access is needed, frequently the application will be created by the IT department or outsourced to a database specialist. It’s worth being familiar with the process of creating and doing simple modifications to Access databases, however, because this basic understanding is fundamental to querying existing Access databases and creating/modifying reports—a function that is more common for nondatabase specialists.
