Access 2010 - Level IV Advanced Queries using Microsoft SQL      Back to Course List

In earlier Access classes, students learned to create a broad range of queries using Access’s graphical user interface, the Query Design View. This course will extend the student’s knowledge of query creation through the use of SQL, also known as Structured Query Language.
SQL is a computer language that uses ordinary English words such as SELECT, FROM, WHERE, and HAVING as keywords in its syntax. This course will utilize the specific syntax for querying within Microsoft Access. This syntax may differ in many instances from that used in Microsoft SQL Server, as well as that used in other vendor’s databases.
The ability to retrieve data in SQL is accomplished through the SELECT statement. The fundamentals of creating SELECT statements will be covered in detail, familiarizing the student with statement clauses, keywords, and special terms required to build a specific query. Each clause will be reviewed to understand its syntax and its order of placement within the overall statement. A variety of queries will be created to gain an understanding of options such as: sorting; grouping; combining query results; joining related data, creating calculated fields; using functions; and specifying criteria.
The student will learn how to create Subqueries and Data-Definition Queries, both of which can only be created by using SQL.
This course is a great lead-in to Visual Basic Application.

Excel's Built-in Functions       Back to Course List

Built-in Functions are formulas that Excel has predefined. These functions are designed to quickly perform calculations with a minimum of effort on the part of the user. Excel has already determined the necessary mathematical steps required and only needs to be given the arguments in order to complete the calculation—that is, the cell addresses or ranges where pertinent information is stored. There are over 200 built-in functions in Excel 2007 and over 300 in Excel 2010.
While a few commonly used functions were covered in Excel I, II, and III, this course covers a broader spectrum and introduces the student to a wide range of useful and versatile functions that most users haven’t discovered yet. It will also cover tips and tricks on how to combine several functions to add even more outcome possibilities.
