  1. First Let me Thank you for all these lessons videos Mr Richard.
    I was watching your videos from part 00 till this one it was playing well but, this one can not play. Would you mind checking it what is the problem that I can not watch it please.

  2. Where do I get me a set of general purpose Access database templates ??
    Is there a reliable web site free of computer viruses that I can go to to get templates ??

  3. Thank you for these tutorials!  I recently began collecting data for a project and although I've used Access databases at work, I hadn't actually created a database in Access in a little over ten years (in a BCIS course I took in high school).

    Needless to say, I don't remember anything about how to get started or how to set it all up, so these videos are proving extremely helpful – very easy to follow!

  4. I'm noticing that in version 2007 that when you click on Create > Table, that the additional tabs "Fields" and "Tables" does not appear automatically. Is there a way to make them appear?

  5. I have to learn access for my computer comp test and this is soooooo helpful.  I don't have access to Microsoft Access anywhere so thanks so much!

  6. Your tutorials are impressive.  I have very little experience with MS Office…I own a MAC and iPhone…am spoiled…find that PC programs are more difficult to figure out and not intuitive.  Never in my working life did I have a class or training on any MS program or in the operation of a PC…do all employers think we were born with the knowledge?  Anyway…starting a new job in a few days…and will be required to know MS Office and Access…thanks for the help…just wish I had the actual programs to tinker with…Not the same on MAC….

  7. I was told by friend to use your tutorial.  I am simply trying to build a very simple data base for my clients so I can send monthly birthday cards by printing labels, and to have their info at my fingertips.  Is this the program I want?  Sounds VERY complicated.  Never worked with Excel and very little word.  I was following until you got to query and creating reports, etc. Is this what I really want?
