[ITS Workshop] Entering/Importing Data in Access
Fri, 17 Jul 2015 13:00:00 CDT

In this session, we will work with two popular ways to get data into your database – entering data through a form and importing data from Excel. Forms provide a quick and easy way to modify and insert records into databases. They offer an intuitive, graphical environment easily navigated by anyone familiar with standard computer techniques. We will also explore various ways to transfer data from Excel to Access and vice versa. Part of the power of Access and Excel is the ability to easily transfer data between each application, thus allowing you to take advantage of the features of both applications.
