What's your excuse for not using Access?

Nobody knows how to use it.

It looks too complicated.

I have no idea what it does.

We use Excel.... we’ve always used Excel!

Why you should use Access

Access exists for you to put all of your data into one place. Do you keep your knife, fork and spoon in different drawers at home? Imagine the faff at mealtimes?

Business Analytics is about comparison. Excel is a wonderful Analysing tool. Access is the most efficient way for a company to store and manipulate the data that needs to be analysed. It is also the most cost effective and efficient way to create workflow solutions to regular reporting and information representation.

The Commercial standard in business analytics. A spreadsheet that is able to calculate complex formula with the ability to graphically represent a multitude of business service reporting techniques.


Visual Basic for Application is an event driven computer language. Most notably used for the automation of tasks used in Other Microsoft Office Programs. This is what is behind all the buttons.

Combining all three
