Lesson One: The terminology used in an Access database, starting the Access 2013 program, opening an existing sample database, opening a table, query, form and report, entering a new record, finding records, sorting records, printing a report, closing a database.
Lesson Two: Planning and design, relationships, design view, defining fields, data types and properties, creating a new blank database, creating tables, entering data using datasheet view, re-sizing columns, using the lookup wizard.
Lesson Three: Defining relationships, creating a table using the datasheet view, formatting the datasheet, modifying the table design, creating a database using a template, renaming an object.
Lesson Four: Editing data in form and datasheet views, adding new records, using print preview, changing page orientation, printing a datasheet, enforcing referential integrity in a relationship, creating a relationship report, creating a form using the form tool, working with controls in form design, using themes, modifying properties in a form.
Lesson Five: Using advanced sort, using filter by form, importing a table from an external database, using a junction table to resolve a many to many relationship, defining a composite (primary) key, adding a new field to a form, using a calculated control on a form, creating a multi-value field, creating an attachment field, creating a form using the form wizard, adding a calculated field to a table.
Lesson Six: Using query wizard, setting sort criteria, using ‘or’ and ‘and’ in queries, using expressions to set criteria, creating different types of queries, creating and naming a calculated field in a query, using aggregate functions.
Lesson Seven: Adding a field with data validation in a table, creating a form with subform, entering data using a form/subform combination, creating a split form, creating a basic report, using the report wizard, creating and modifying the design of a report, using the concatenate expression, inserting a logo to a report, adding a subreport to an existing report.
Lesson Eight: Exporting an html document, understanding object dependencies, importing an excel spreadsheet into a table, exporting a spreadsheet, importing a text file into a table, using the analyse table function, using the analyse performance function, using the database documenter.
Lesson Nine: Adding a chart to a form, modifying a chart in a form, changing the tab order in a form, displaying the current date and time in a form, applying conditional formatting to a field, creating a navigation form, customising the ribbon.
