In today article if will provide some information and usages of the Microsoft Access. Well, I search a lot for a result about Microsoft access on the internet and on google but I couldn’t find anything. I thought that I have to provide some information to the access users and Microsoft office users. Well, Microsoft access is a useful program in such places, accounting, for a bank, for a school office, for creating a table, and for many other conditions. The Access interface is completely changed comparing to the other Microsoft Office programs. In Microsoft word, PowerPoint, and excel most of the options are the same as the Home tab. There are many identical options in all of the programs. I can name the clipboard group as an example. In addition, Microsoft access is more difficult to use rather than the other office programs.

At the first when you open an Access window then the window will look different from the other Microsoft office programs. You Can see the access interface in the following picture. As you all can see in the picture that how much different the access interface is than the other Office Programs. I will introduce the Access interface in the other articles.

How to work in Microsoft Access?

Most of the people don’t use Microsoft Access because they don’t know the usage of the program. Today I will tell some of the usages that are really useful. We can do the following things in Microsoft Access.

  • Tables: we can insert and create tables in Microsoft Access. Well, we can create tables in other Microsoft office programs but when we insert a table in Microsoft access then it has more features and usage then the other tables.
    • In Microsoft, access tables have more feature. For example, we can apply the filter to the cells. The filter can be like the data validation that exist in Microsoft excel. What is data validation?
  • Relationship: another great option in Microsoft access is the relationship. By this feature, we can relate or connect two tables in one query. When we connect two tables then the information that exists in both tables will be in one query. We will study further about this option in the other articles.
  • Form and reports: form and reports are another form of the table that is really awesome we can format them and we can create macros and action buttons in the form and report. We can manage the information in the best condition in the form and report. We can insert the picture in the form and report pages. These two options are really awesome I will create an article about using form and report in the near future.
    • Note: Forms, report, and queries depend on the relationship option.
  • Macros & code: we can create macros and code in Microsoft Access. Macros and codes have an important role in creating actions buttons, a simple calculator, and so on.

I will post more article about Microsoft Access options and features in the near future.


In this post, I told you many things about Microsoft Access 2016. We can create many things in this program but it is somehow difficult to use. In Microsoft PowerPoint and Word most of our work was with the text and notes but in Excel and Access, most of our works are the numbers, macros, codes, tables, queries, reports, and formulas.
