To get the most out of Access 2019, one needs to understand the structure and main elements of a database. In this 9-video course, "Access 2019: Tables, Fields, and Entries," learners can explore tables, primary keys, and relationships, and discover how to format and edit both fields and field properties. Begin by learning the structure and key features of your database such as a table, field, value, query, and form. Then learn how to create a table automatically or manually in a database, and organize, filter, and hide database items. Examine how to insert fields into tables, format database fields, and edit database field properties, as each field in an Access data table has a particular format. In Access, you will often find that data values inserted into different tables are related, so discover how to link data in different tables to help visualize the relationship between records spread across multiple tables. Then move on to observing how to manage data relationships, and finally, to learning how to visualize object dependencies.
