Access Tutorial

Hi, I am new to access and was wondering if you can point me in the direction
of a tutorial that will help me create my database.

This is what I am trying to do:

On the left side, I would like a list of all of the clients in the database.
If I click on one of those clients, I would like to open up a form with that
client's information.

On the right side of the list, I would like to have a form to enter the data
for the client.

Is it possible to have the list on the side that I am trying to create? I
am really new at this and would like to find a good tutorial.

Thank you.

Don't get hung up too quick on the layout and appearance of your Form! Forms
are *very much secondary*; you need to be sure you have your tables and
relationships set up correctly to begin with.

It's very easy to have a form with a Listbox or Combo Box (a dropdown box)
listing all the clients with a Subform for that client's data.
