Tired of the “Spreadsheet Blues”? Concerned about “off-the-shelf” database software that can cost you an arm and a leg to customize. It’s time to take control of your information technology and enter the 21st Century of database management.
PC CZAR features Microsoft ACCESS for Windows -- the creative alternative to EXCEL. Here are a few of the reasons to convert from the limited worksheet model of EXCEL to the powerful relational database program of MS ACCESS:
Using ACCESS queries, macros, and the grouping report utility, you can create management reports that are “business specific”, readily available, and far exceed the restrictive sort and subtotal functions of EXCEL spreadsheets.
Using ACCESS forms with queries enables you to create user-friendly input mediums that reduce errors and improve data security.
The “open architecture” of ACCESS allows you to make changes to formats and create ad-hoc reports with minimal training and support costs.
As a fully integrated business model based on state-of-the-art information technology, MS ACCESS can eliminate the need for duplicate data entry, increase the speed and minimize the expense of input, and reduce storage requirements for large amounts of current and historical data
In summary, here’s a quick comparison of ACCESS and EXCEL :
Data Handling Cascaded / Integrated Linked / Fragmented
Form Input Mode Multiple Users Single user only
Formula Fields One for Each Column Separate for each Cell
New Report Updates Automatic Cut and Paste
Data Availability Current and Historical Current Only
Data Retrieval From Single Database From Multiple Files
Input Error Reduction Referential Integrity Cell Protection only
Ad-hoc Reports Format to Data Data to Format
Data Security Save data line Save data files
Your company is worth every BIT of Business Information Technology. Save time, money, and effort in obtaining the critical management data you need for positive “bottom-line” results.
