Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access | Microsoft Office | VBA | SQL
Microsoft Access is a database management system that is part of the Microsoft Office suite of productivity tools. It allows users to create and manage databases, as well as create and customize forms and reports to facilitate the organization and analysis of data.

Access is often used to store and manage large amounts of data, such as customer or employee information, sales data, and other business-related data. It can be used to create custom databases for specific business needs, or to import and manage data from other sources, such as Excel spreadsheets or text files.

Users can create relationships between different tables in an Access database to link and extract data from different sources. Access also includes a number of tools for querying and manipulating data, including filters, sorts, and calculations.

Access integrates with other Microsoft Office products such as Excel and Word, making it easy to create reports and documents that contain data from Access databases. It can also be used in conjunction with other technologies such as Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and SQL to create more complex databases and automate tasks.

BITS experts have used Microsoft Access in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
