Course Overview

This 1-day course builds on the skills and concepts taught in Access - Level 1 and Access - Level 2. This course will help students prepare advanced Access features such as database management, advanced form design, packaging a database, encrypting a database, preparing a database for multiple-user access, and more. Knowledge of these features separate database professionals from the casual database users or occasional designers. The Access - Level 3 Class focuses on managing the database and supporting complex database designs , including import and export of data; using action queries to manage data; creating complex forms and reports; macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA); and tools and strategies to manage, distribute, and secure a database. This course is the third part of a three-course series that covers the skills needed to perform database design and development in Access. For comprehensive certification training, students should complete the Level 1, 2 and 3 courses for Access.

Learning Objectives

How do you import and export data in Microsoft Access?

In order to import or export data in Microsoft Access, you will need to use the Import/Export Wizard. This can be accessed by going to File > Import/Export.

From here, you will be able to choose what type of data you want to import or export. You can also specify the source and destination of the data.

Once you have chosen the options that you want, click Finish to complete the process.

What are macros in Microsoft Access?

Macros in Microsoft Access are a powerful tool that can automate almost any action or series of actions.

There are two types of macros - those that are attached to an object, and those that are standalone. Object-bound macros run when the object is clicked, while standalone macros can be run from anywhere within the Access database.

Macros can be used to automate just about any task in Access, from opening forms and reports to running queries and importing data. By utilizing the macro design grid, users can specify exactly what actions they want the macro to perform, and in what order.

Creating macros is a straightforward process, and even complex actions can be easily specified using the macro design grid. However, it is important to remember that macros can be a security risk, as they can potentially allow malicious code to be executed on a user's machine. For this reason, it is always best to only use trusted macros from reliable sources.

What is VBA in Microsoft Access?

VBA, or Visual Basic for Applications, is a programming language that allows you to create custom solutions in Microsoft Access. With VBA, you can create forms, queries, and reports that are not available using the standard tools in Access. You can also automate tasks in Access using VBA.

VBA is similar to other programming languages, such as Visual Basic, but it is specifically designed for use with Microsoft Office applications. If you are familiar with other programming languages, you should be able to pick up VBA quickly.
