Databases: Building a database using Access (not a current course)

  • Access icon course pack | Publicly viewable | v. 2013

This course shows you how to build the essential structure of a relational database, using Access.

If you need to build or plan a new database, or revise an existing database for a new purpose, then in this course you will learn how to do so using Access. Starting with a design you have already mapped out (see the previous course “Databases: Concepts of database design”), you will learn how to set up a relational database. This involves creating tables with fields and a range of useful and relevant properties. You will explore the importance of relationships between tables and learn how to create and manage them.
