Data analysis is more than crunching numbers and turning them into charts and graphs. Certainly Excel can do that, but you may be surprised to discover that Access 2007 offers powerful functionality that may be even better suited to your data analysis needs. Learn to analyze large amounts of data in meaningful ways, quickly and easily slice it into various views, automate redundant analysis, and save time, all using Access. If you know a bit about table structures and formulas as well as data analysis, start thinking outside the chart.
