Queries enable you to retrieve, analyze, and manipulate data. Learn to create and modify queries on related tables and discover various types of queries. This training also covers advanced query functions such as aggregate totals and calculated expressions.
- Build relational queries and modify query properties
- Perform mathematical and text operations in a query
- Create parameter queries that allow you to supply criteria when run
- Summarize data using groups, calculated expressions, and aggregate totals
- Create Crosstab queries to summarize data
- Create and run Action queries to create, modify, and delete data
- Use Find Duplicates and Find Unmatched queries to locate data
- Understand database relationships
- Create one-to-many relationships
- Create simple relational queries
