Are you tired of standing on the sidelines while everyone else has all the fun with database queries? Tired of hoping that Access is doing what you think it's doing when you point and click? Wouldn't you rather just tell your database manager what slice of the data you want? Join us for a hassle free entry to the world of SQL, (Structured Query Language), the lingua franca of relational databases. It's surprisingly simple and surprisingly powerful -- and it works in just about any database you can name.

This session will be most helpful if: You have some experience working with data in columns and rows.
