Hi

Does anyone know of any shareware or packages downloadable off the internet, that can interact with the user, to teach them how to use Access?

If anyone can direct me to their website I would be most grateful.

Thanks
Dan

Greetings, ey143

This isn't actually interactive, but try to take a look at the help function of Access itself. Depending on the verion of your application, it should have a table of contents (the tab where you see all the purple books) with a very instructful beginners roundtrip through Access. If that doesn't go deep enough try the MS net itself for a totally non-interactive complete online copy of the Access97 Developer Reference.
If you want to stick to interaction, visit your local computer training center, or check your computer reseller. They should have some affordable training cds.

For new users you might try going to www.zdu.com.  It costs $7.95 a month and has Access tutorials plus a lounge for you to ask questions.  There is an online instructor for the harder classes.

Many thanks for all your response.

I have since managed to get hold of some interactive tutorial at my local library on CD ROM.  If this interests any of you, there is a series starting with "Getting started with Excel/Access/Powerpoint/Word '97, intermediate or advanced levels.  I saw these program recently sell for £10 ($17).

You may want to check out their web site http://www.viagrafix.com/

Funny how they "came up" with a URL like that one! :)
