Access Basics:
Getting Started

Title: Jan's Illustrated Computer Literacy 101
Did you want: Working with Databases: Access 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016

Before you start creating databases, we had best make sure you can get Access open and set up to behave the way these lessons expect. It saves a lot of confusion!

These lessons are written for Icon: Access 2002Access 2002 and Icon: Access 2003Access 2003. Many aspects will be the same for older versions, but there are always differences. It's why they have to number the different versions!

First you will learn some ways to open Access and an existing database. Then you will learn where to go to change the way Access behaves. It's always useful to know how to get help, so we will go over the various types of help that are available, too.
