Ok so here is what I am being tasked with.  We use a pervasive database for our main accounting systems and our accounting department has to pull together reports on a regular basis so I have been asked to put together a system that will pull the data from the pervasive database and put together the reports through access.  Given that info could anyone point me to some documents on how to do this?  I have used access before but only to modify existing stuff, not to build it from scratch.  I have admin rights to everything so I have access to what ever I need but I have no intention of touching anything until I know what the heck I am doing.  So with that in mind anyone know where to go to start?

It is a long time since I played with Access, but I remember that it used to come, and I think still does, with a superb tutorial called 'The Northwind Company' which touched on just about anything you could do with Access. Might be worth a look to see if you have it installed.

 

It was working through the tutorial that decided me against using Access !  It was a bit like taking a sledgehammer to a peanut, but I still rmember being impressed by the tutorial - extremely well written.
