The Database Developers Series

Non-profits thrive on databases ... funding and services depend on the staff's ability to obtain information about clients, donors, volunteers, etc. Microsoft Access is relatively easy to learn compared to other database applications, but it does take a lot of time and commitment.

After this set of courses, you will be able to set up and use practical databases for your organization.

Because each course is based upon the information presented in the previous session, we ask that you take all five in the series. Cost is $300 for the entire series.

  • Microsoft Access 1: Database Planning & Set-Up
    12/13/07 ... 9:00 AM - Noon

    • This first session will focus on identifying what needs to be included in a nonprofit-related database and how to structure it so that the database will be easy to use and easy to retrieve useful information. Attendees will plan the database they need for their own organization. Prerequisite: Skills covered in Microsoft Excel 2.  

  • Microsoft Access 2: Database Tables & Relationships
    12/20/07 ... 9:00 AM - Noon

    • In the second session, we will actually set up the database planned in the previous session. Tables will be closely examined, especially field properties. We will also do quick searches, filters, and sorts. Relationships between tables will be a major focus. Prerequisite: Skills covered in Microsoft Access 1 and completion of homework.

  • Microsoft Access 3: Database Queries & Basic Forms
    01/03/08 ... 9:00 AM - Noon

    • Queries are used to analyze data, combine data from different tables, and retrieve data from one or more tables using criteria you specify. Forms can be created to "pretty up" your data, make data entry easier, and combine data from different tables and queries. We will also integrate the data into Microsoft Word and Excel for file exchange and publication. Prerequisite: Skills covered in Microsoft Access 2 and completion of homework.

  • Microsoft Access 4: Database Forms & Reports
    01/10/08 ... 9:00 AM - Noon

    • More extensive work on the forms will be covered. We will also cover creating and editing reports, which present your data in meaningful ways. Sub-forms and sub-reports will be discussed. Skills covered in Microsoft Access 3 and completion of homework.

  • Microsoft Access 5: Troubleshooting the Database
