Microsoft Access is a Database Management System (DBMS). It’s a combination between Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical interface and tools that allow software development. This program falls in the category of Microsoft Office suite applications, that is included in the processional and higher subscriptions. Microsoft Access is not the only part of data management software, however it stores data in it’s own specific formatting based off of Jet Database Engine.
Microsoft Access allows the linking of information and data easily, such as order information and customer data. But it also has an array of other powerful connectivity features. This program works with data directly, meaning it has access from other sources like popular PC database programs that have Structural Query Language (SQL). This also includes databases on desktops, minicomputers or mainframes, as well as data stored on the internet.
