03-Jul-2016 23:20

Now consider the following scenario example, that will illustrate the use of a Microsoft Access Update query: One of your product suppliers has decided to increase the price of their products by 3 percent (%) across the board.You have decided that you will use an Update Query to change all of the relevant records in your Products table.Changing records manually is not only time consuming, it is also inefficient, and lends itself to errors as you update the records.

Most queries you design in Access will likely use multiple tables, allowing you to answer more complex questions.

Queries can be difficult to understand and build if you don't have a good idea of what you're trying to find and how to find it.

A one-table query can be simple enough to make up as you go along, This process might seem abstract at first, but as we go through the process of planning our own multi-table query you should start to understand how planning your queries can make building them a lot easier.

In order to create the relationship you first need two tables.
