One thought on “How to use Microsoft Access – Beginner Tutorial”
I am trying to build an Access Database and just having all types of issues with relationships between tables. It is not a straightforward database, well not to me. I am just learning Access, just watched your video.
I have a table for my employees with an employee # each, a table for all rooms and buildings by a given room #. The employees are assigned to one or many of these rooms. I have tables for computers, projectors, printers, all devices have asset tags and S/N. Most devices are assigned to the rooms, but many are assigned to the employees. Can you make an advanced video with Access, emphasizing the relationship part?
