'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.
