Queries I: Get started with queries

The Query Wizard and Design view


You can use several tools to build a query. For this series of courses, we'll focus on two of those tools — the Query Wizard and Design view.

Callout 1 The Query Wizard makes it easier to build queries that group your data, and that retrieve data from multiple tables.
Callout 2 Design view gives you complete control over your queries.

With either tool, you start by choosing a record source — the data fields you want to see. Your record sources can come from tables, other queries, or both. After you add the fields to your query, you run the query to test it.

You'll put those tools to work in the next course. For now, remember they aren't hard to use.
