Question and answer
Explain the usefulness of converting data currently held in Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets into a relational database using Microsoft® Access®.
Microsoft Access has evolved into very user friendly tool and has become simple to learn. It provides for the easier adding, subtracting, and altering of data once the database. [ Access offers the ability to construct queries to extract reports from the database to analyze all aspects of the data captured in the database (Grauer, 2011). Whereas this is possible in Excel, it is much more
cumbersome. Access also offers the ability for more than one user to update tables at the same time but will not allow for the updating of one record by two individuals at the same time. Access offers the ability to apply rules while entering data so the product will contain the data needed to make calculated business decisions. Access offers the ability to create many reports from the same data set to learn different things about the business (Debasis, 2009). Benefits of Converting Current Data to Microsoft Access By converting the data we currently hold in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to Microsoft Access, we will be able to track different aspects of our business more effectively. We will also be able to use the reports we will be able to run to drive positive business results. Building a database to capture the data surrounding our business we will be better able to employee records. Once all of the data has been entered in Access, we will be able to track sales trends by associate. We will also be able to track the buying patterns of our customers allowing us to stock the appropriate items by sales surges. Our sales force will be able to use the database to more effectively streamline their work and understand how to be more productive with our customers. While many of the items listed above are possible in Microsoft Excel, the data must be inputted to the spreadsheets and work books and can be more difficult to find the information the user is looking for. ]

What are the benefits of telemetry in health care for the elderly?
Weegy: I'm not sure if this is the type of telemetry you are talking about, however, many years ago I worked on a cardiac telemetry unit as an RN. [ They were simply electronic devices attached to the person which gave a continuous EKG readout to a monitor at the nurses station. The nurse could watch the monitor to observe any abnormalities in the heart function and run strips (print out) the EKG. ] (More)

hello
Weegy: Hi! What can I research for u today? User: Describe the benefits of using Microsoft® Access® in the work environment. Weegy: As a desktop database, Access is well suited for small, departmental applications. These applications may start as one user’s project. [ For example, an employee realizes that productivity can be increased if a paper-based process is automated with an Access application. Other users in the department recognize that they can take advantage of the application if additional features are added. As more features are added, more employees run the application. As time goes by, more and more Access applications are deployed for different business units. ] (More)
