I'm sorry I can't exactly help you, but have you considered something like this?

Idiots guide to Access

I've never read a book like this, but I imagine they are a quick way to become familiar with a product.

Depends what you are doing in Access. You need to understand relational databases and database applications. I don't believe someone will be able to help you remotely over the web to build the understanding you need. Getting a book would be your best bet and put in some hard study. You probably will need to understand creating tables, relating data, running queries (which some SQL language is helpful for), and running and creating reports.

Some Visual Basic is good too if you need to create and kind of custom GUI interfaces.

Good Luck.

Access can get fairly confusing. Some of the basics; information is stored in “Tables”; you can create input masks for “Tables” to require a certain format of the information; the information stored in Tables is viewed, manipulated and entered in “Forms”. You can use “Reports” to print out or view specific information stored in “Tables”.

You should spend some time in the Access help files.
