Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The primary goal of GO! Series: Microsoft Access 2007 Brief,1/e is to teach Microsoft Access 2007 quickly and easily, with an approach that is based on clearly-defined projects. A key feature of the book is the use of Microsoft procedural syntax: steps begin with where the action is to take place, followed by the action itself. This book contains a CD-ROM that provides users with the skills to solve business problems using the computer as a tool. The Brief edition covers the following topics: getting started with Access databases and tables; forms, filters, and reports; sorts and queries. An efficient and handy guide for anyone interested in a project-based introduction to Microsoft Access 2007.
