Retrieving data? It’s simple with our ‘Access Queries’ training course!

There is no better program than Access for structured storage of data. But if you don’t know how to retrieve specific information, then it’s not going to be of much help. For this reason Xylos developed the ‘Access Queries’ training course to teach you how to quickly retrieve all the desired information.

Would you like to get the most out of your databases? And become a master at working with queries? Enrol now for our Access training course. And search through tables with a flick of your wrist and a click of your mouse. In our other Access training courses, you can learn how to design databases (module 1) and make reports and forms (module 3).
