Being a normal human being, you probably have work to do. In fact, you may have lots of work piled precariously around your office or even stretching onto the Internet. Relief is in sight because Access 97 can help you get more done in less time, eliminate the piles, and generally make the safety inspector happy. The good news is that you don't have to know (or even care) about table design, field types, relational databases, or any of that other database stuff to make Access 97 work for you.

Get the help you need with this friendly reference to all the features of Access 97. If you're confused instead of organized, befuddled instead of productive, or just completely lost on the whole database thing, Access 97 For Windows For Dummies is the book for you. This guide is for those who need to

  • Save time and effort by adapting existing reports and forms for new databases
  • Unearth the mysteries of solving problems with Access queries
  • Glean enough about macro programming to make people think you're a certified Access guru
  • Find hundreds of tips on making Access easier, more understandable, and generally less annoying

Start with an overview of both database concepts in general and Access 97 in particular, and start taking control of your data. Access 97 For Windows For Dummies also covers the following topics and more:

  • Dealing with data in need of repair
  • Making your table think with formats, masks, and validations
  • Finding stuff in your tables
  • Comparing AND to OR
  • Creating an AutoReport
  • Formatting a beautiful report
  • Creating forms that look cool and work great

Even after you've mastered the nuts and bolts of database building with Access 97, you'll find plenty of valuable resource material in this guide to keep you coming back for more. Timesaving keyboard shortcuts, warnings for how to avoid common crises, and an introduction to the wider world of advanced Access features are all included for you in this easy-to-use book.
