Access 2019, the latest version of the Microsoft Office database application, has always been a powerful program, and this version is no different. Chances are, you’re reading this book because all that power makes Access an application that’s not so easy to learn on your own. If you’re hoping to unleash that power for your data, you’ll need us.
