Which edition of Access mate?

If you don't mind me asking what are you using Access for? I often find it gets misused, often people use it where they should really be using a proper database like ]MySQL or ]SQL Server and sometimes even use it when really a spreadsheet would be more appropiate......

Either way your best (and cheapest) best for learning Access would be to look up tutorials on the internet e.g. ]http//ww…htm just Google "Access tutorial" for more.

Oh good god, its so refreshing to see someone else actually using the programs that they are designed to be used for :thumbsup:

The amount of time I have redirected someone as they actually want to create a spreadsheet rather than an access database, I couldn't match to the amount of blades of grass on my lawn (and its a big lawn!!)

Thanks for the link.

At the moment I'm not using Access for anything, I keep on seeing jobs I'd like to go for that ask for access experience and it'd be handy if I knew how to use it, or at least know enough of the basics to blag the interview ;-)
