Access is graphical, so it takes full advantage of the graphical power of Windows, offering usual methods of access to data and provides simple and direct methods of working with information. It also facilitates the administration of data, since its possibilities of consultation and connection help you to quickly find the desired information, whatever its format or storage location. If you want a more robust database, for larger environments, although a little more complicated you can use MYSQL. It's free if it is for internal or personal systems, and with a small payment you can distribute it.

Using Microsoft Access

50 - 1. Access, fast and simple storing, managing and sharing data. The interface of Access, Microsoft Office Fluent, is designed so that any user without specialized knowledge of databases, can work professionally. Many times the information we handle has to transcend our local hard drive to be shared with other users, a task for which Access is specifically designed to solve very easily its connection with Microsoft Office SharePoint, being able to easily share files, perform audits and consultations , or backup copies.
2. Start quickly using predesigned solutions. Access comes with a complete library of predesigned solutions that will allow us to track the immediate information, without the need to design the forms and reports, valuable Access tools. Once we have gained access to Access, we can modify these templates and create our own. The learning process is natural and brings great benefits.
3. Different formats of the same report for different recipients. Access allows us to present information in very different and personalized ways, an advantage from which we will derive much benefit when we want to present a group of data in different ways for different recipients. The possibilities here are very broad, which guarantees that it will meet practically the total of our needs.
10 - Make your data more attractive, Having advanced knowledge of Excel can help you make more powerful spreadsheets and one of its most important features is the creation of graphics to visualize information in a simple but attractive way, with Power Graphics.
Solves complex problems. A data analyst has so much information available that they have an unprecedented ability to solve even the most demanding challenges. Mixing tools such as Power BI, Excel Power Add-ons, Macros and advanced functions in Excel can help you obtain the information and reports needed to make simpler decisions in a short time.
Learn advanced techniques. Even if you have basic knowledge of Microsoft data services, a tool like Access can teach you the best practices for data management and the basics of managing a database to be more efficient.
  • Use Access forms with Excel data.
  • Reason Filtering, sorting and queries in Access are similar to Excel. 3. Perform a mail merge or create labels
  • Perform a mail merge or create labels
  • Anticipate that many users will work in the database and want robust options that securely handle data updates, such as record locking and conflict resolution.
  • Anticipate the need to add more tables to a data set that originated as a flat or non-relational table.
  • Want to execute complex queries.
  • Want to create different reports or postal labels.
  • Create a database using a template
  • Create a database without using a template
  • Copy the data from another source into an Access table
I consider that Microsoft Access is a database management application used to enter, search, classify and report information. Microsoft Access is easy to use and fully integrated with Microsoft Office software applications. Access databases can be customized to complete applications using development tools such as Microsoft Visual Basic and can be extended to more advanced products.
The systematization of information in access databases has prevented duplication of information, therefore, we have had the possibility of planning with real results and not assumptions of results that gave us tools such as excel.
The consolidation of the information provides us with data for the analysis of the results, consequently identifying the problems that we subsequently want to correct and thus avoiding wasted time and personnel costs.

  • Capture, management, communication of data in a professional manner and for the administration of databases
  • It provides a series of easily accessible work tools that staff can quickly understand their tools
  • Organization of the information, homologation of the information for the analysis of data necessary for the decisions that facilitate the growth and development of the company.
  • Microsoft access does not adapt well in organizations that require the handling of large information content or where many variables have to be included, or large companies that require continuous results management.
  • I believe that they can extend the option of the amount of user allowed so that large organizations can use it.
  • Microsoft access is not the best database tool for immediate use but for long-term jobs.
It is an easy-to-use program compatible with the most popular databases in the world, so it does not require expenses in training activities or the hiring of very specialized personnel, being a saving.
