How difficult is Access 2013 for a new user?

It looks like I’m going to be responsible for database maintenance using Access 2013. I’ve never used it before and I’m a little intimidated going forward. How hard is Access 2013 for a new use to learn? Does it require coursework or can it be picked up with a little effort?

You might want to grab a book or two about Access 2013 to get some background. It always helps to prepare yourself before using new software. That way you can hit the ground running, and not waste time trying to understand the basics.

I think it is reasonably accessible for a pretty powerful program. You should be able to use the basic functions with little difficulty. As you might expect with Microsoft, there are lots of “wizards” to help hold your hand as you use different capabilities and functions. Fully exploiting the capabilities might require a little more effort.
