Learn Access -4- Tables and Relationships
This free video lesson is in a series called Learn Access, hosted by YouTube (where you can also see Captions).  The previous videos in this series cover perspective, planning, and creating a database.

Learning Access or know somebody that wants to?  This lesson focuses on building Tables and Relationships in Microsoft Access.

The most important part of an Access database is the structure ... Tables, Fields, and Relationships.  In this lesson, data and foreign keys are entered into tables.  Then we build 7 more tables; some from scratch and others by copying and modifying ... be careful when you copy!

As tables are created, Relationships are defined.  When arranged logically,  the Relationships diagram is a tremendous tool for planning, and to quickly see what a database is tracking and how information is related.

Learn Access by focusing on structure first ... the rest is downhill when this is done right.  If the structure is not strong, your database will have poor performance and you will often struggle to do
calculations and show reports the way you want to see them.  Good structure equates to flexibility and power.
