Presentation 2:   Excel vs. Access - the epic battle continues
Title:  Excel vs. Access - the epic battle continues
Presenter:  Lisa Friedrichsen

Description:  Most people are using Excel to manage lists of information. Whether it's product pricing, human resources or transaction data, Excel users spend a great deal of time managing, tracking, and analyzing data.  But is Excel always the best tool for this job?  When should you use Access?  Choosing the best tool for the information management challenge is a very common struggle.

Come to this session to learn five key questions that help determine whether Excel or Access is the right tool for the job.   We will use this methodology to analyze a typical business management problem that starts as a large list of data in Excel.  We will import the data into Access, and then split the data into related tables to experience the power and benefits of a relational database

Lisa Friedrichsen is a Professor at Johnson County Community College in Computer Sciences & Information Technology.  She is also an author of multiple Excel and Access textbooks.
