Get started with everything you need to know about Access

What is Access
Do you have an idea for a database or web app to help your team work more efficiently? With Access, you don’t have to be a developer to implement it.

Get started with databases
Databases and web apps can yield big business advantages. Database design is critical to achieving your goals, whether you want to manage employee information, provide weekly reports against data, or track customer orders. Investing the time to understand database design will help you build databases that work right the first time and that accommodate changing needs.

Get to know database objects
Access provides six database objects that, when combined, help you take full advantage of your data. Learn the role that each object plays.

Learn how to create an Access Database

Desktop database or web app?
When you open Access 2016, you see a gallery of templates. Your first step in building a database is to decide whether to create an Access web app or an Access desktop database.

Create an Access desktop database
To create a desktop database quickly, use one of the many templates provided with Access. Or, if you don’t find a template that meets your needs, create a database from scratch.

Create an Access web app
View and sort data online, using any device, in an Access web app—even if you don’t have Access. The fastest way to get started is to use a template.

Everything you need to know about adding tables

Build tables and set data types
Because they store your data, tables are the backbone of your database. Each table contains information about a specific subject. For example, a supplier table might store supplier names, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers.

Build tables with Table Designer
When you create a table with Table Design, you can be more deliberate about designing your database, set field types, create a lookup list, and create a foreign key to pair with your primary key.

Combine fields using the calculated data type
Use calculated fields to concatenate data from separate fields, like first and last name; or to calculate dates, like order date plus five days.

How to use Relationships in Access

Get started with table relationships
The power of a relational database lies in combining data across tables. To do that, you first need to establish relationships between your tables. Then, put Access to work to combine data in queries, forms, and reports.

Create relationships with the Lookup Wizard
The Lookup Wizard establishes a relationship between tables. It creates a foreign key that refers back to the primary key of another.

Create relationships with the Relationships Pane
The Relationships pane creates relationships between tables, but requires a compatible data type between the parent/child columns and doesn’t create a lookup list.

Create many-to-many relationships
Many-to-many relationships are the most commonly used table relationships. They provide crucial information, such as which customers your salespeople have contacted and which products are in customer orders.

Create one-to-one relationships
One-to-one relationships are frequently used to indicate critical relationships so you can get the data you need to run your business.
