Familiarize people with the process of utilizing SQL Server views from within Microsoft Access. Microsoft Access is a very powerful client/server development tool. One of the SQL Server objects that you can interact with from within Microsoft Access is a SQL Server view. After linking to a SQL Server view, the developer can create queries, forms, and reports based on that view. In fact, in most cases the data is editable!
