Microsoft Access Part 3: Developing Access Applications

Alert Me


You’ve covered many of the basic functions of Microsoft® Office Access®, and now you’re ready to learn advanced Access features such as database management, advanced form design, packaging a database, encrypting a database, preparing a database for multiple-user access, and more. Knowledge of these features separate database professionals from the casual database users or occasional designers.

This course is the third part of a three-course series that covers the skills needed to perform basic database design and development in Access 2019.

  • Microsoft ® Office Access ® 2019: Part 1 Focuses on the design and construction of an Access database —viewing, navigating, searching, and entering data in a database, as well as basic relational database design and creating simple tables, queries, forms, and reports.
  • Microsoft ® Office Access ® 2019: Part 2 Focuses on optimization of an Access database, including optimizing performance and normalizing data; data validation; usability; and advanced queries, forms, and reports.
  • Microsoft ® Office Access ® 2019: Part 3 (this course): Focuses on managing the database and supporting complex database designs , including import and export of data; using action queries to manage data; creating complex forms and reports; macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA); and tools and strategies to manage, distribute, and secure a database.

In this course, you will manage an Access 2019 database and add complex database features to improve its usability, efficiency, performance, and security.

You will:

  • Share data across applications.
  • Use action, unmatched, and duplicate queries to manage data.
  • Create complex reports and forms.
  • Use macros to improve user interface design.
  • Use VBA to extend database capabilities.
  • Perform database management tasks such as backup, compacting, repairing, performance analysis, checking object dependencies, and documenting.
  • Implement security strategies and distribute a database to multiple users.
