What is Access?

Microsoft Access is a database management system used to create and manage computer-based databases and combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software development tools. 


It enables you to organise, manage and store information for reference, reporting and analysis. Access can also import or link directly to data stored in other applications and databases.


Software developers and data architects can use Access to develop application software and power users can use it to build software applications to manage all areas of business.


MS Access can used for business and for personal information management..


Some business and personal uses include:

  • business information management

  • personal information management

  • queries - data reporting

  • manipulating data

  • custom designed programs where there is a need for database backend

  • create graphical user interface (GUI) front view to help users manipulate the data in the tables without accessing the tables directly which may cause confusion

  • the possibilities are enormous.....
