MS Access Databases -- Better Business Management Through Better Data Management.

So what are MS Access Databases? How can they help me?

Let's start with "database." What is it? A database is, in its simplest form, an automated 3X5 card box or a set of 3X5 card boxes whose cards are related to each other in some way. A box is like an Excel spread sheet. Easiest example is a set of family address cards or a spreadsheet listing the names and addresses of your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles, etc. Each card or each row in the spreadsheet is a record. Each record contains pieces of information in cells or "fields" like first name, last name, street address. In a database the box of cards or spreadsheet is a table in the database with rows (records) and columns (fields).

A database can have many, many tables and an application can have multiple databases plus forms, queries, macros, reports, and other objects which together allow the user to better manage data.

So What? I can sort of do that with Excel! True. Excel can do some of what a database application development program like Access can do. But, Access can do a lot more and more easily to address complex management questions to derive actionable information.

Actionable Information. That's what MURCON is in the business to help businesses derive from the stacks of data all around and within them. If you are looking for actionable information instead of stacks of data -- and maybe a little wisdom besides -- contact us today!
