You can use the Northwind Traders sample database as a tool to help you learn Access 2000. Experiment with the data stored in Northwind, and use the forms, reports, and other database objects as models for your own database. When you first open the Northwind database, all the objects in it are available from the Database window. You can also view descriptions of the objects in the Database window by clicking Details on the View menu. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
