Access v Excel: Which is Better? When to Use Each.
In this video, I will cover the pros and cons of Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access. Which one is better? When should you use each one? What's the final verdict?
Marc from Akron OH (a Gold Member) asks: I just started a small business and I can't decide whether I want to use Excel or Access to manage my customers, contact, orders, inventory, and so on. I don't want to use off-the-shelf accounting software like QuickBooks because I do have some unique record-keeping needs for my business. I've been using Excel for years, but I hear Access is a lot more powerful. What do you recommend?
I'll show you how to import and link data from Excel into Access. This way your secretary can perform data entry in Excel and you can bring it into Access. I'll show you how to use an append query to automate the process of importing newly entered data in an Excel sheet. Then we'll go the other way. I'll show you how to link Excel to an Access table so your secretary can see your customer list, itinerary, or whatever else you have in your Access database. I'll show you a trick to refresh that link every time he opens the sheet.
