Is there a site with free access databases, just starting out and want to get some free samples to modify and see "how it's done" anyone know of a site please? or someone that can help with customising a database like the inventory control sample that comes with access.

TIA

It already comes with a large database for you to play with, just read the help files. Or create a new data base off a template, and have a play.

The Microsoft Access 2000 support centre is probably a good place to start:

There are also a couple of good forums that might help:

Hope these are of some help. I found getting to know Access a bit of an uphill battle.

this may be a little off topic, but wintecactive have a great learning resource (www.wintecactive.co.nz) for Access and other software. www.technocatz.co.nz has more details of it, I think?

its free but you will have to register at your nearest facilitating area, depending where your from.

Its a great learning resource if your doing ICDL. :)
