Access 2000 for Beginners

By Alexis Leon & Mathews Leon, Tata McGraw-Hill, 2002.

'Access 2000 for Beginners' is written for all who want to learn about Microsoft Access 2000, one of the most popular, powerful and easy-to-use relational database management systems that one can buy. This book is written in a step-by-step style to make the learning of the packages as easy as possible. The book contains all the information that you will need in getting started and learning the ropes of Access 2000. The chapter on Windows Me gives you an overview of the operating system. It also teaches you to perform the essential tasks you will need to use the Windows operating system. The chapter on Office 2000 gives you an overview of the Office 2000 suite of which Access 2000 is a member. If you are new to computers then read the book from the beginning, but if you are familiar with the Windows environment, you can skip the chapter on Windows Me.

The book uses the example of a bookstore to explain how Access 2000 could be used to accomplish the various tasks that one can accomplish using Access 2000-whether he/she is working for a big organization, running a small business or using the computer for personal purposes. We have tried to make the learning process easy by providing a lot of screen shots, real life examples, exercises, and so on. We hope that you will find this book very useful and will help you become more productive.
