Avoid the common pitfalls of poor table design, which leads to endless frustration trying to get things to work.

You'll pick up many tools and techniques for designing professional-looking forms that make data entry quick and easy. You'll also learn how to create forms that automatically do much of the work for you, such as calculating totals and applying sales tax. You'll create reports to print mailing labels, invoices, and receipts for orders. And you'll see how to make the finished product easy to use with simple one-click access to all the main features of the database.
