When used to their full potential, the forms and reports functions within Access can provide a powerful, professional-looking interface that can be used to perform multiple tasks, and make it easier for others to use your database application.

We cover a variety of different form types – including search forms, forms with interactive controls, and forms within forms – and show you how to create and manage an effective navigation switchboard.

If you’re already competent in designing and using Access databases, and able to build queries, this advanced Access training course will enhance your current skill level.
