This page is devoted to explaining how to create a database using Microsoft Access. Databases are very powerful instruments for manipulating information. I use them for develop tests, student lists, lists of flies I tie for fly fishing, wine collection (only two bottles as of this date!). Once you understand the basic logic of how a database is constructed and how it works, you have learned a very useful tool for teaching.
Here are links to demonstrations on how to develop and use elements of a database starting with a table.
