Databases hold the key to organizing and accessing all your data in one convenient place. And you don't have to be a data science wizard to build, populate, and organize your own. With Microsoft Access For Dummies, you'll learn to use the latest version of Microsoft's Access software to power your database needs.

The book also shows you how to:
* Handle the most common problems that Access users encounter
* Import, export, and automatically edit data to populate your next database
* Write powerful and accurate queries to find exactly what you're looking for, exactly when you need it
