Databases are often viewed as the end product rather than as a tool in the work place. This book has been written to address this need, using straightforward examples and assessing different ways of storing information. It is a practical guide to collecting data and using Microsoft Access to transform it into useful information. Written for both Business Studies students and professionals, it adopts a functional approach which teaches theory by practical example. 'Jargon buster' sidebars explain the terminology related to database theory, while the revision questions at the end of each unit aid comprehension. This straightforward approach means that the text is ideal for self-study.Dowling, Nick is the author of 'Database Design And Management Using Access ', published 0018 under ISBN 9781844801091 and ISBN 1844801098.
