The chapters in Part III introduce you to some of the basic analytical tools and techniques available in Access. Specifically, you get a solid foundation in building Access queries.
Queries draw various data sources together and present the combined information in useful views. They enable you to synthesize the raw data in your Access tables into meaningful analysis.
Chapter 8 starts by exploring the Query Designer along with techniques to create simple analytical outputs from your Access tables. Chapter 9 outlines the various operators and expressions that can be used to add complexity to your Access data analysis. Finally, in Chapter 10, you dive deeply into more advanced query concepts. Here, you learn how to go beyond simply selecting data from your tables and explore how to aggregate query outputs, how to perform action queries, and how to create versatile crosstab queries.
