Hello everyone,

 

I'm taking a database course right now, and I find it difficult to remember all the detailed instructions describing how to perform various task with Microsoft Access 2016. The problem is I only have access to images (which are very poor quality at that), and I don't have a database built at this time to do the many task described in the text.  Does anyone know of a database that I can import into MS Access 2016 to use for educational purposes?  I just need it to learn my way around MS Access until I have built my own database which will come later in the course.

 

Thank You for any help!

Do they have a database already built that I can use for educational purposes? That's all i'm looking for.

You would need to look through the site.

I did not see one on the site, but I didn't see any obvious place to look for it. Maybe there is not one. I guess I will have to look elsewhere.

Probably would take you less time to do one of the introductory tutorials and make your own.

 

Plus, you would learn something in the process.

I don't have time to make an additional database. I will be making my own database later in the course. I just wanted a quick database to use so I could do some hands on work with the reading until I make my own.  I wish I had time to do it, but I definitely don't. I took 10 hours in a 9 week semester, plus I also have a job.

Thank you for your help! I contacted my professor, and she provided me with some example databases to use. Thank you for the link. I will check out the forum anyway.

There are literally thousands of MS-Access database templates, a great many of them free, available for download.
