What is Microsoft Access?
Microsoft Access is a powerful and affordable database platform that provides user-friendly data entry forms, data analysis (as complex as you would like), customizable reporting, and integration with other Microsoft products. You have probably seen it offered in your Microsoft Office or Microsoft 365 suite, but you may not know how it is actually being used.
