Examine data that was imported from Excel. Filter data in Access just like you do in Excel, for just what you want to see.
Turn on a totals row to sum columns. Best-fit columns and change column widths. See how a new AutoNumber value  is automatically assigned, and totals are changed, when a new record is created. Look up a customer code using a quick query.
