no. Access is a complex program, and database development is a complex
topic - it's impossible to teach you how to use the software, and learn data
modeling principles, in a newsgroup forum. it takes a considerable
investment of time, study, and practice on your part; if you're willing to
make the investment, see http://home.att.net/~california.db/tips.html for
more information, beginning with tips #1 and #2, in that order.

Access is easy to learn, it just implementing it is the hard part.

Education is never free. If you don't want to pay money for a college class,
then at least invest in a $50 dollar book on Access. The free way is to read
the help files installed with Access. So many people ignore the built-in
help for an application. You will be amazed what you can find. I have found
things, I wasn't even looking for. Also, hope you have lots of time, cause
there is lots to read.

If you work, then check with a co-worker who uses Access on a regular basis,
they may be willing to help you for free. If you work, you can always see if
your work place pays for training. If they don't, try to strike up a deal
(get it in writing), that you will exchange extra unpaid worktime if they
pay for a class. Most college classes cost about $450 for a 15 wk class. If
you go to a private training class that is the cost for 8 hours, so you can
see a 15 wk class, you get more bang for you buck. You also have more time
to understand the issues.

Search the Internet for sites that cater to MS Access, you can learn a lot.
Search the Internet and read up on topics: "Normalizing Database Tables",
"Database Relationships", "Database Primary Keys", "Database Foreign Keys".
You will be amazed what you will find. If you don't have an Internet
connection, take a trip to your local library, they usually have PC's with
Internet connections, which is free.

Bottom line as stated before. If you really want to learn an application,
you will invest the time and money. Think of learning Access as an
investment to your future.
