Integrating Excel and Access by Michael Schmalz

By Michael Schmalz

In a company environment, the Microsoft workplace Suite is a useful set of functions. certainly one of workplaces largest merits is that its purposes can interact to proportion details, produce studies, and so forth. the matter is, there isnt a lot documentation on their cross-usage. until eventually now.
Introducing Integrating Excel and entry, the original reference that exhibits you the way to mix the strengths of Microsoft Excel with these of Microsoft entry. particularly, the publication explains how the strong research instruments of Excel can paintings in live performance with the established garage and extra robust querying of entry. the consequences that those purposes can produce jointly are almost most unlikely to accomplish with one software separately.
But the publication isnt simply constrained to Excel and entry. Theres additionally a bankruptcy on SQL Server, in addition to one devoted to integrating with different Microsoft place of work purposes. very quickly, youll become aware of how to:
Utilize the in-built positive aspects of entry and Excel to entry data
Use VBA inside of entry or Excel to entry data
Build connection strings utilizing ADO and DAO
Automate Excel stories together with formatting, capabilities, and web page setup
Write complicated features and queries with VBA
Write uncomplicated and complex queries with the entry GUI
Produce pivot tables and charts together with your data
With Integrating Excel and entry, you could crunch and visualize information like by no means ahead of. Its the proper consultant for somebody who makes use of Microsoft workplace to address facts.
